Cache Attributes

Quick Cache Kid Friendly Available in Winter Munzee Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

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 drive by this one most workday morning on my way to meet my carpool partner.  For most of my life, this was Andrews Air Force Base, but was changed to Joint Base Andrews a few years ago, I believe.   It was only in the last year, though, that the other services got equal time on the water tower.

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.  What better place to conceal a "UFO" than on a military base.

For more information on how water towers work (when the military isn't using them to host the alien horde), 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.

Found while starting my new Munzee adventure.  Now I have to add OpenCaching to my travels too.  Two new adventures in the same week!

1 24 August 2015 Mr.Yuck Found it

Well, at least myself and chaz aren't the only two finders! Spotted the WTF Munzee first, took a minute or two to see the BIT. Pic later. Thanks! I might add, I stayed ON Andrews for 3 days. Finally popped over to the cache early morning on my last day.

Checked this one and all is fine.

Forgot to get this one while picking up a GeoPoker card, so stopped by again today to nab it.

STF - after 18 months! Well, I was on a mission to grab a GeoPoker cache from GPS Games in College Park and decided to also grab a Terracaching LC that DudleyGrunt suggested in that thread. I figured since I was down near here, why not grab this one as well. I also hid the GePoker cache near here to try to get some other cachers interested in the Opencaching.US site. Hope that pays off.

 

I tried to put the Water Tank on my head like a hat, but that's pretty tough when you're alone. Wink TFTC
