3223 / 84.  I'm not a big puzzle guy, but I solved the puzzle (on a break) at work, today.  I don't like to head out for FTF attempts on OCNA puzzles or multi's, either, since I wouldn't want anyone to think I used my admin abilty to cheat and peek at the coords.

Took a bit of looking and just a little help from the CO via e-mail.  Just as my phone was ringing with a call from her, I finally spotted the cache.  Of course, then I wondered I'd missed it.

Angela and Princess did walk over, though, afterward.  I walked over to the water, after replacing the cache, but didn't find any turtles.  When they arrived, Princess wouldn't let me stop petting her.  You'd think no one loved her, at home.

I had a minor issue, in that I couldn't bring the cache up in the  "OpenCaching For Android" app, without making my way to CycleAngela's profile and pulling up her placed caches.  I will have to check on that.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Thought I might be FTF but Chaz beat me by a few hours. Solved the puzzle on my iPhone while parked at the parking spot. First started on the wrong side and had to backtrack. My eTrex and iPhone both zeroed out at about 15 feet from the nearest possible hide.  And that's where it was. Thanks Angela!  I also looked for the turtles but they were further from shore. I recall being here before for another cache. I guess that's a plus for OCUS caches. No 0.1 mile limit.  I think I must work on an OCUS hide next

Cool OCUS find #100! Cool  Smile FTF Smile 1:54 PM. (FTF #45 Wink) I saw this one posted this morning and thought it would be a fun one to get for #100. It also helped a lot that it was very close to work for me.

First of all, I have to thank DudleyGrunt and cycleangela as they are prolific hiders (in most of the games) in my area. I reep the benefits of  that.

After finding the cache I ventured to the pond and scared a bunch of terrapins into the water. As I approached the edge I noticed a very large snapping turtle at the shoreline, half submerged. He/she wasn't too worried about me and continued to nip at the vegetation. I'd say the shell from front to back was about 20 inches in length. It had a mouth large enough to fit a golf ball inside. Would not want to get bitten by that thing, you might loose a hand (not to say a couple of fingers). TFTC
