Ohio's First Dead Drop!!!
So I've been thinking a lot about how to handle this type of cache and I think I've come up with something that should keep it safe so that only cachers will find it. And you won't need a supplementary cable. Here's what you have to do:
1. Find the DEAD DROP flash drive. You'll have to "fish" it out of the picnic table. Don't just yank it - use some finesse.
2. Connect the flashdrive to your computer. You will find only two files - open any other files at your own risk. I'm pretty sure most all Windows Operating Systems have notepad, which is the program that will read the files.
3. Open and read the "readme" file. It's like a welcome letter about this type of cache.
4. Open and sign the logbook file.
5. Leave with a big smile on your face and log the cache here on the OCUS website.
Hopefully, if replaced properly, this should be a muggle proof cache. We'll see how it holds up.

By the way, thanks for the "shout out"!

Congratulations to DJCreekCachers on the FTF!!! Including this cache, there are only 4 DeadDrop caches within 6000 miles of this location as of Sept. 8 2012 - and only 3 have been found - this being the third...

This was an awesome experience. It was our first Dead Drop Cache. Lucky for us we only had to drive 15 minutes to get to it. After arriving at the posted coordinates we set out trying to find the Dead Drop Flash Drive. It took several minutes of both of us searching, but we finally found it. That wound up being the easy part as retrieving it was somewhat harder. We were beginning to think we might not retrieve it, but persistence paid off and before too long we had it in hand. Since we already had our laptop fired up (with 3G access), we plopped the flash drive in and presto, the two text files appeared, just as advertised. We read the readme file and then opened the log file and entered our information as requested. After saving the file, we safely removed the flash drive and replaced it as we found it. This gave us the inspiration to get one put out ourselves. Stay tuned. Thanks to Bernoulli for placing this one. As a side note, we called Sonny, Sandy, and Sean on the Podcacher Hotline before heading over to Xenia. After getting our FTF, we called them back to report our good fortunes. Listen to the next show to see if they feature this cache. TFTDDC and Keep on Cachin'
