Description   EN   

Xenia Station is a great place to park and begin a bike ride, in one of at least 4 directions.  There is a nicely refurbished train station that provides water and restrooms, there is an interesting caboose nearby, and there is a playground and picnic tables.  I have parked my car here on numerous occasions while carpooling with others to hiking destinations in southern Ohio. 

This cache is a well camouflaged bison tube that should be out of the way of most muggles and not too hard to locate.  Caches disappear around here with alarming frequency because of the local muggle kids who frequent this area but hopefully this one will last a little while.


Congratulations to Grey-n-Red on the FTF!!!!

I'll get over there and have a look at this one before the week is out...I'm not fan of micros in the woods either but I'm afraid it's the only way to keep a cache around in this super high traffic area.

The two kids I had with me aren't exactly micro in the woods fans. And they were excited to try the dead drop, so we moved on to that (and were successful!)

A nicely-crafted hide!  There were quite a few muggles at the Station, but none seemed interested in me as I hiked with my walking stick down to a an area not too far from the GZ and disappeared down a trail.  Although I could hear activity in the distance, I was quite alone where I was, and was able to quietly and stealthily approach the GZ and begin my search.  I looked at what I thought was the obvious spot for several minutes, then backed off so I could make another attempt from a different direction.  That worked out much better, because in the process I spotted something that definitely needed closer inspection---and found the cache!  After signing the log and admiring your handiwork for a few moments, I hiked my way back out via an indirect route, and greeted the muggles I passed at the Station, receiving friendly waves and greetings in return.  This is a great hub for those of us that enjoy biking----TFTC!

Congrats on another FTF!!! You know, adding these banners is getting quite easy - I just copy and paste your first to find marquee right into all of my cache descriptions Surprised

GPSr wouldn't settle down back here. Had me going back and forth. Finally decided to put away and after I expanded my search I spotted it. Nice hide. Another FTF. Keep putting them out I'll keep going for them. TFTC
