Cache Attributes

Quick Cache Kid Friendly Thorns In the Woods Limited Hours Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

I've been thinking about placing an OC.US cache for some time now, and the Truly Well-Rounded Cacher LC Terracache posted by DudleyGrunt has motivated me to get it done today. So, it's named in his honor - O.C.D. = OpenCache for Dave.

It's a small waterproof container in the woods at George Washington Park, a Fairfax County Parks Authority park. This park has a very nice Rec Center and several good soccer fields. It was the home field for the younger SoccerFanatic's Lee-Mount Vernon rec soccer team for many seasons, so visiting here to place a cache brought back many fond memories. FCPA allows caches in this park without obtaining additional permission, as long as they follow certain rules. The park is open dawn to dusk every day.

Park in the lot by the Rec Center and walk back alongside the road you drove in on. You will enter the woods sooner or later. A bit of stealth is required when looking for this one; don't made your entry into the woods too obvious. Once in the woods, you'll be mostly screened from passersby, although when all the leaves are off the trees and bushes, you may need a higher level of stealth. The container holds a log sheet with the Password, a very small pencil stub, and there was room to squeeze in one small kiddie item as well.

We hope you enjoy visiting this park.

1 31 August 2014 Johmer and Tinks Found it

I realized on the last day of the month that I needed a few more tasks for the "Diversified Cacher Contest" so I headed out to grab this one.  I'm usually not much for micros in the woods, but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes.  Thankfully, the coordinates were perfect, making the find very simple.  However, the cache was laying out on the ground when I approached it, so I replaced it where I think it was supposed to be hidden.  As 35mm containers go, this was the driest one I've ever seen, so good job with that.

Very glad to see good coords given.  The other cache in the park had lousy coords, and was not findable.  This one was a breeze.  Thanks.

#27 of 29 finds today. Spent the day with DudleyGrunt caching in the area. Found hides on 6 different listing services today: GC, TC, OCUS, NC, LbNA and GPSgames.

The hide location has some water in it, but the cache is nice and dry. This was a quick C&D. TNLN TFTC

2nd to find.  A quick cache after work. Congrats to D-Grunt for the FTF.

3735.  Definitely honored by the 3 new caches hidden by SoccerFanatics in this park.  Had an opportunity to stop by after work, today, and was glad to be able to claim the FTF this one.

SF micros in the woods usually give me more trouble.  Once I got near GZ, I actually found this one pretty quickly.

I definitely made getting to the cache more difficult than necessary, though it still wasn't bad.  Coming back out, as it often is, was more obvious.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
