You will need the Log Password that is printed on the BITcache to log your find online.  

Also, while you are there, please take an "artistic" photo to include with your log.  If you have any problems with the photo, it is not a requirement, but I would definitely appreciate seeing them.  You do not necessarily need to be in the photo.

I knew this tower would be my first.  I even remember when you could read the company name on the tower and it was across Route One from the Laurel (Harness) Race Track.

I suspect that the main function of this tower is to serve as a cell tower.  You'll notice numerous cell "pods" on top of the tank.

If you would like to add to the series, please feel free.  I know I won't be able to get to every water tower in Maryland and surrounding areas.

I've long had a theory that water towers were really just camoflague for alien space craft waiting for their orders to wipe us out.  While I'm not completely disuaded of that idea, I'm willing to entertain the idea that some / many are what they appear.

For more information on how water towers work (at least the ones that aren't housing otherworldly harbingers of death), see this article at HowStuffWorks.com.

This series was inspired by numerous WTF caches I found in the Greater Charlotte, NC area.

Most were placed by TermiteHunter, who was inspired by South Carolina's ThGoonies.  While I was there, stargatekrewe also placed a few.  I was able to meet all these cachers during my visit.
