Open Trunk

An Opencaching Exclusive

This is an easier version of one of my most difficult caches in the area placed in my favorite park for caching.  It's not far off the trail and near parking so it could be a quicky or it may take some time to discover.  The size is equvilant to a film canister but not of that shape.  Please return as securely as possible before leaving.

1 31 August 2014 sfcchaz Found it

DudleyGrunt and I came down to North Carolina to seek some OCNA caches. They are many, many OCNA caches in the Charlotte area and we wanted to seek them during the current contest going on the OCNA site.

Today I found 45 OCNA cahes, 5 Groundspeak caches, 1 GPSgames.org cache , 1 Opencaching.com cache and several possible Terracaching.com locationless caches.

Don't let DG fool you,Wink I said he should probably check that location again after reading the size and knowing I ony gave it a cursory look for a larger container. Wink Very nicely done. Container was actually where it was supposed to be. TFTC

1 31 August 2014 DudleyGrunt Found it

Was down from Maryland with sfcchaz for a (mostly) alt-caching run thru Charlotte.  This was day two, after a surprisingly well attended 0630 (AKA o'dark thirty) event at Krispy Kreme (maybe that explains it).

Was glad to log the nearby GS puzzle after reading the warning on the cache page and deciding to look around.

We had a great time and definitely plan to make a return trip some time.

OK, it's been 25 months and I've returned to redeem my previous DNF.  And I actually made the find vs. having chaz save me.  It's safe for others to come hund this one now.

I think I may have recently found the more difficult version, so maybe that helped me this time.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

not easy enough for me today.

Was at the park to find another TH cache for the GCGC relay and figured I would give this one a shot since I was there.  It probably would have been a quicky had the container not fallen and gotten buried by leaves.  It brought back memories of our search for "the other" more difficult TH cache in the park.  After reading all of the other logs maybe this one needs a little work to stay intact.

I had a great time with your caches today, TH.  Three finds (two GC and this one OC).  I also checked up on the Walrus.

This cache took quite a bit of looking (not quite an hour Wink), but it did test me a little.  I was pretty sure I knew what I was looking for... but the problem was WHICH ONE!

After happening on the right hiding structure, the cache was spotted pretty quickly.

Thanks for the cache, TH!

(See, people still hunt OpenCaches!!!!)
