The Walrus

An Opencaching Exclusive

A Tribute to North Carolina's Oldest Cache: Octopus Garden

    Hidden on 9/30/2000, Octopus Garden is North Carolina's oldest cache.  It was originally a moving cache first placed by Iungionis.  With the changes at Geocaching.com, it is now stationary and maintained by AdventureTom.

    In commemoration of Octopus Garden's origins I have placed this, the first moving cache on Opencaching.us and in North Carolina to be released on the 10th anniversary of Octopus Garden.

   I will attempt to keep the coordinates updated with It's current location but read the logs to verify the last placement. 

  The original location for the Walrus was near the current stationary Octopus Garden coordinates at  N 35° 09.633' W 80° 44.148' 

 

    Once you have found it you may choose to leave it in place or take it with you and place it somewhere else.  Should you remove the cache when you find it please mark an "X" with chalk in the area so that anyone that follows will know that The Walrus is already on the move again.  Please keep the cache in a wooded area of Mecklenburg County and be sure to return here to post new coordinates.
