Description   EN   

The cache is not at the posted coordinates. This is only the starting point for the letterbox. Please abide by Howard County Park rules, and only search for this cache during daylight hours. This land also serves as a managed hunting area. At the trail head, dates are posted when the park is closed due to hunting. Other times, you may still want to be cautious and wear blaze orange during hunting season.

One day, Sysco decided he'd had enough of Dylan's antics and left home to find some peace and quiet. This orange tabby cat started his journey at the posted coordinates for the trail head of the red trail until he got to the orange connector trail and decided he wanted to go chase some birds from the meadows. Being ten years old, he tired rather quickly, and went in search for a place to rest. He found a very distinguishable bend in the trail next to an orange trail marker on a wooden post. He continued on for a few more feet to where there was an orange marker on a tree on the right side of the trail. Head into the woods on the other side. Turn around to see a cluster of trees and a fallen branch and and start your search.

If you make it to the blue trail (South Wind Trail), you've gone too far to find this sweet cat. Once you get on the orange trail, this letterbox hybrid is not too far away. Feel free to post how long it took you to find Sysco, but not how far to not spoil it for the next finder.

The cache contains two ziplock bags, one with a log book, pen, and a Sysco pathtag for the FTF, and the other with another log book and the stamp for letterboxers. Signing the geocaching log book is required, and stamping the letterboxing log book is optional. There is an orange ink pad in the box, but if you prefer, you can bring your own. Please do not take the stamp out of the box. It is not for trade.

If you have any trouble with the clues, my inbox is always open to questions. If you find this box, and it needs some maintenance done, feel free to contact me and let me know. If you found this listing when it was active on the groundspeak site, the box is in the same "general" area, but a bit more off the trail, and has a new log book.

I believe I found this one when it was on geocaching.com but I wasn't sure it was in the same location, so I found it again. TNLNSL. TFTC!

Spending some banked Recommendations.  This was a fun one.

2939.  Seems like I spent most of my day looking for the CO's pets - Sysco, Princess, Dylan, and Chick.  I ended up 3 for 4.  I think CycleAngela needs to keep a better eye on them. 

Found Sysco on my 3rd visit here.  2 of those visits, were today.  I first got here, searched for a bit and then had to go take care of something.  Returned and finally found myself able to follow the instructions.

Once at GZ, I spotted the cache and then noticed that the the OCUS logbook (in bag) was lying NEXT TO the cache.  Bad Chaz!  Of course, it chould have been a muggle, but the cache was nicely closed and replaced.  I didn't look in the Letterboxing logbook, so maybe a LBer, who doesn't like caching, left it out in a sort of passive attempt to harm the geocaching part of the hide.  I put the cache logbook in the LB bag and took its bag, since it was too wet and nasty to put back in the cache.

Anyway, left a couple wooden nickels and my own Pathtag.

I found myself being rained on a bit, but it never really amounted to much. 

Thank and Happy Trails!
