Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

I'll only provide you a suggested parking spot to start your search for this cache. How you choose to approach finding this geocache will dictate the overall experience.  The clues are here somewhere. N 38º 46.758 W 077º 15.043

There are parts of suburbia where you can get just far enough off the grid to find another world. This spot is one of those places. Your only company here will be the occasional doe, fox and squirrel. I've hidden a full sized  container with some worthwhile swag to make the journey even more rewarding.

Please note, this area can be quite wet and swampy. Conditions can change rapidly with rainfall. Come prepared for the thorns, poison ivy, ticks and snakes. A non-electronic navigation aid is always advisable too.

My goodness it's been awhile since I could come by and hike these woods again.  Even with the long absence they felt very familiar.  The cache was resting comfortably.  I hated to disturb it, but I wanted this checkup to be thorough.  The contents were in perfect condition. Laughing Cache on!

Been out of practice for me to solve the puzzle! When I get to the coordinates, I tried to look for something that matches hint for about 15 minutes. When I returned to the spot, I was thinking clearly why the people said differently at the logs. Then I spotted one thing and I slapped my forehead.  Zoomed to find it in 15 minutes as the description matched all the way.  Thank you for the pleasure with your fun cache!  My first find at oc.us.

I'm not sure why I was so stupid the last time I was here. I'm pretty sure I just took down the coordinates without reading the description. But this time I came prepared, or so I thought. I bushwhacked the entire way to GZ. Of course I found the much easier way back, even if it was a little farther. Although there was a lot of great swag, I TNLN. TFTC

Mother Nature had her way with the forest during the recent flood.  Finally got in here to check on the cache and I wasn't surprised to see the hiding spot destroyed.  What did surprise me is I found the cache about 100' away, resting on some debris.  The cache and contents was in great shape.  I moved it back to the hiding spot and took some new coordinate readings.

The coordinates have changed slightly since I was able to get good signal today.  The puzzle has been corrected with the new coordinates too.  The listing coords are only for parking.  Look deeper in the listing for the hiding spot.  Cache on!

I changed my previous log to a note. I mistakenly logged it found. I, of course have not found it ....yet.
