ABOUT THIS CACHE:

The Guardians of this Cache are Watching You!
(This cache is Monitored by a Closed-Circuit Security Camera system)

Every night is All Hallows Eve. This cache has a few unexpected twists you may not notice, when you find it. If a neighbor asks if you have found it yet, maybe that's because they have been clued in to what's going on! So, you better be on your best behaviour.

From the moment you begin searching for this cache, consider yourself a performer on stage and the neighborhood as your audience. If you perform well, I may nominate you for a Best Geo-Actor or Geo-Actress Award. If you cannot find this cache, then you must be about as blind as a Chiroptera! Got Echolocation?

Smile, you're on candid cache. The cache container is of an unusual design and you will find out just how different it is when you get there. Once you have arrived, it will be quite obvious where it's hidden. If you're very stealthy, you might not get caught by the cache owner!

While you are in Kitsap County, please take the time to hunt for other caches found at GeoCaching, GPS Games, LetterBoxing, NaviCache, and TerraCaching ! And when you get back on the road, don't forget to "Hang Up", "Slow Down" and "Smell the Roses".


CACHE ACCESS & HOURS:

CACHE VISITING HOURS:
It would be Very Unwise of you to visit this cache between the hours of Sunset & Sunrise. Furthormore, Do Not Block the Road and or Driveways in the immediate area of the cache site. By disregarding these limitations, you may receive more attention from the locals and or authority figures than you want!
TRAVEL BUGS, GEOCOINS & GOODIES:
Please keep in mind that Travel Bugs & GeoCoins are NOT Trade Item. Leaving a Travel Bug does not entitle you to one of the Goodies in the cache! Also, if there is more than one Travel Bug or GeoCoin in this cache, please be considerate of other cachers and leave something for them!


LOGBOOK & SECURITY ISSUES:

I have instituted a Higher Security Level to prevent a repeated loss of this cache and it's contents, especially Travel Bugs & Hitchhikers that may be within it. The Logbook is now located Inside the Lid of the Locked Cache Box. After signing it, please put it back in the plastic bag and in the lid where it belongs!

This cache is shared with other similar organizations. Therefore and when signing this logbook, please indicate the caching website with whom you are affiliated.
Within this Cache Box is a smaller plastic box, identified as "L.b.N.A. USE ONLY" and containing a Letterboxing Logbook, Stamp and Ink-Pad. All other cachers must sign logbook located in the lid of this cache box.


ABOUT BATS & MORE:

FLEDERMAUS: German word for a Bat.
CHIROPTERA: Genus for Common Bats.
DESMODUS ROTUNDOS: Vampire Bat Species.

We all know that birds eat insects during daytime hours. However, did you know that bats eat insects during the night? Imagine not having bugs around your house 24 hours a day!

If you really want to know more about bats and how they can keep away the bugs or to even build a bat house, just check out one or more of these web sites:

Bats! Why you should care. Amazing & Useful Bats. Bats are the only Winged Mammals that can fly.

It was very interesting to find one cache and be able to claim a find on all these listing services.  But this cache has the distinction of being my very first find on OCUS!

Nice quick cache once I was able to get the dial to turn.  TFTC.
