This container is a holding place for GeoKret trackables. It should have a pen in it, but it's always a good idea to bring your own. These trackables can be used in opencaching.US, gpsgames.org, and geocaching.com caches as well as some others. To place in a GC cache, you will need the GC number of the cache AND the GPS coordinates in order to log it correctly.
DO NOT place geocaching.com trackables in this cache as they are only trackable on that ONE site.
The neighbor has dogs that will come out and bark, but they are just noisy and not aggressive. You might want to avoid this on Sunday mornings or Wednesday night. This GK Hotel is close to Easterwood Airport, so it'll be handy for out-of-towners. Tell me where you're from if you're not one of the locals.
You do not need to have a login at geokrety.org in order to log these trackables, but why not set up an account and start making your own trackables for free and drop one or two back here?
Congrats to itscindy and urricashipp for the co-FTF!

Wow! No one's been here since my last visit! That one was a DNF and today I redeemed myself by making the find. The cache has some cool stuff in it too.
This turned out to be more of an adventure than I had expected.
When I arrived at the GZ, having been here before, I had a pretty good idea where to search (the CO had also given me a good hint this past March). I "assumed the position" necessary to effect the grab, had just gotten hold of the container, when I found myself being attacked by swarming fire ants who were zealously guarding the approach to the cache and had remained hidden until I inadvertently disturbed them.
As I jumped around swatting those pesky, awful creatures off of me, the entire area in front of the cache became awash in ants, so to speak.
I had an implement in the geomobile which I needed to use to replace the cache, as there was no way I could just replace it "by hand," which incidentally had indeed gotten bitten, but not too badly (I think).
So, just beware that this is Texas, fire ants live under things, and they don't like being disturbed!
.... and, TFTC!
