Description   EN   

You will need the Log Password that is printed on the BITcache to log your find online.  

Also, while you are there, please take an "artistic" photo to include with your log.  If you have any problems with the photo, it is not a requirement, but I would definitely appreciate seeing them.  You do not necessarily need to be in the photo.

I knew this tower would be my first.  I even remember when you could read the company name on the tower and it was across Route One from the Laurel (Harness) Race Track.

I suspect that the main function of this tower is to serve as a cell tower.  You'll notice numerous cell "pods" on top of the tank.

If you would like to add to the series, please feel free.  I know I won't be able to get to every water tower in Maryland and surrounding areas.

I've long had a theory that water towers were really just camoflague for alien space craft waiting for their orders to wipe us out.  While I'm not completely disuaded of that idea, I'm willing to entertain the idea that some / many are what they appear.

For more information on how water towers work (at least the ones that aren't housing otherworldly harbingers of death), see this article at HowStuffWorks.com.

This series was inspired by numerous WTF caches I found in the Greater Charlotte, NC area.

Most were placed by TermiteHunter, who was inspired by South Carolina's ThGoonies.  While I was there, stargatekrewe also placed a few.  I was able to meet all these cachers during my visit.

Checked on the cache, today, and it is good to go.

1 29 July 2012 sfcchaz Found it

Today my mission was to complete my most "Busy Day" to date in the GS world. A busy day is when you find the most different types of caches in the same day. Today I found seven cache types: traditional, earthcache, wherigo, multicache, unknown, letterbox hybrid and an event.. My "Busiest Day" to date.

This one was on the way to DGs monthly event. Thanks for the BIT cache. I tried making it look like the tank was a hat. This is what happens when you use the self timer and focus on the background.

After my trek at Savage Park, I had time to swing by and find at least one cache. I'm guess it's safe to assume that I'm the FTF. This is certainly a different concept, and if I didn't know any better, I could think that the WTF mean something else! I'll have get the other new BIT cache another day. Thanks for the cache!
