NOTE:  There is currently some construction going on near the cache and you won't be able to approach from what will probably eventually be another option.  You won't be able to touch it, but should be able to see what you need.

Checked on cache and it seems to be missing.  I will plan to replace, again.

I needed a quick fix this afternoon, and the nearby BIT caches fit the bill for some after work finds. I believe I've finished all the LWT caches, I look forward to seeing some more. Thanks for the cache!
