Description   EN   

I found this road last year hunting caches and thought it was a great place to visit to get even farther away from the hussle and bussle of the city.  You could park at one end and walk or bike along it as many people use this road for exercise or you can drive it.  Just be careful of the other people on the road and go slow.  But you should do that anyway to take in the woods.

There is parking near by and you are hunting for a lock-n-lock in the woods.  There are pokey plants and bity bugs because you are in the woods.  There could even be snakes or other animals even though I didn't see any while I was hiding it or on the other trips I have made down this road.

Please do not try this cache at night.  While there are no posted restrictions on the road it is only one lane wide in areas with some blind corners that would make it hard to see other cars, bikers or joggers.  And to be honest you won't get to enjoy the the nature of the area.

1 13 March 2014 TermiteHunter Found it

At the OBX for our 25th Anniversary.  Part of the party is to find a few caches and I put some OCus caces in my list.  This is the first physical cache find.  

 

I was all over it after spotting the location from the path but it still took me more time than it should have

I just figured I would note that after parking close to find some other caches OBXMonkey, OBXBeachGirl, Frogette, and Trellsbeth made the find on this one.  I let them hunt it as I had planned on doing a maintenance visit to it while I was in the area and this was even easier than a manintenance run as I got to stand back and watch.

my dad obxgeek was doing maintenance on this cache today so he let us hunt for it instead of just walking up and getting it himself.

 

my late log is because I didn't have a open caching account until the forging community event in Rome Georgia 2015.
