Description   EN, FR   

The geocache is not located at the posted coordinates which is one of the parking areas in Snow's Cut Park. This is a well-camouflaged locked ammo box geocache which presently contains a log book, pen, some nice swag and a TB. The geocache is located in one of New Hanover’s favorite county parks where you will find a few people walking their dogs and sometimes even see a Shih Tzu family being given a ride in a dog stroller! (Note: The Dog Stroller (TB5EBNZ) is a trackable.)

Snow's Cut Park is a nice little scenic park on one of our local waterways connecting the ICW to the Cape Fear River where there is boating, walking, picnicking, geocaching and various other activities. It has other facilities including bathrooms, picnic shelters, additional picnic tables and playground. The name of this geocache was given because it is a nice location to give your dogs buggy rides, dog walks, people walks, etc. To solve the puzzle below, you will need to first visit several waypoints, make some measurements with your tape measure (25 foot should be long enough) and maybe retrieve some additional required information.

Wow. Lots of tape measure activity. Recommend large sturdy tape measure especially for measuring vertical distances. Took me several tries but I got the vertical measurement. Final destination was found after a chuckle from co. Tongue outwhile standing on firm ground.

Geocache well done. Fun activity.
