This puzzle cache IS at the listed coordinates.


Have you ever seen a Traditional Puzzle Cache before? Hehe...
Just think! You don't need to solve one of my on-line puzzles just to get the coordinates. You can go out there right now and have fun! Oh! Did I mention that the cache is right out in the open for all to see! Hehehe...

Have fun and Happy Hunting! - The Raven



Banner of the Month

Oh, I guarantee this will be one cache that you will remember for a very long time. Read the Log Highlights if you don't believe me... hehe... This is one of my most creative caches to date. You might want to bring a blanket to sit down on while you are there having fun. You will be there awhile, and you will probably want to sit down while solving the puzzle. A blanket would come in handy.

WARNING

If you don't have the patience for puzzle caches or try to cheat, then do not attempt this geocache. You will most likely break it in your frustration. SurprisedYellCry

This cache is not delicate. (It is schedule 40 PVC. It is tough stuff.) However, anyone can break anything if they really wanted... I put a lot of time into creating this puzzle cache for you to enjoy, so please take care of it for me because I will not make another one.

The surroundings are definitely enchanting, so why not plan to bring a picnic basket and a blanket to enjoy with a friend or lover on a beautiful sunny day? When I saw this spot, I was taken aback by the beauty in the surrounding trees and grass.CoolCoolCool

You have two choices on getting to the cache site: You can go the hard way and bushwhack it, or you can follow the waypoints below that lead to the trail.

A couple more things to mention: It might take you a few seconds to figure out what you have to do, but once you realize what needs to happen, you will chuckle and say, "You have GOT to be kidding me!"

Lastly, as you walk back to your car, remember how good you felt at that moment and just how fun this cache was for you. If that is the case, please write a good log for me. I really do enjoy everyone's comments, and it makes building these creative caches for you to enjoy well worth the effort. Thank you and have fun!

  • If you find the cache, please put it back as good or better than how you found it.WinkWinkWink
  • BYOP. There is only room for the log.
  • Please beware of wild animals in the woods; even though, you are somewhat close to the road. If you are visiting from out-of-town, then you should know mountain lions and rattle snakes are very common around the Prescott area.Yell
  • Be safe, and as always, Happy Hunting!LaughingLaughingLaughing

1 22 February 2011 networkcacher Found it

Finally logged this cache over on GC and then remembered it was on OCUS as well.  This was the highlight of my second visit to Prescott. We'd struck out on another special Raven cache nearby, Ctenizoidea, earlier this morning. Even with the recent snowfall my formerly-muggle cousin was eager to see a "special" cache. So from the parking area we broke fresh tracks through heavy snow all the way up. Under bright sunshine the glistening snow was dazzling. It's days like this when I wished I owned a better camera because I just couldn't fully capture the beauty of the scenery climbing upward. As we get to the cache itself, my cousin spots it and says "that's it?" I told him to give it a shot, and he did for about 15 minutes. Then I chipped in and we eventually figured it out. Thank you, Raven!

I actually found this one on August 17, 2010 when it was first published on GC.com and got the FTF on it then. So I guess this is my first FTF on this site too. This is a must do cache so be sure to put it on your list if you haven't already done so. TFTC
