Geocache Description:

Night-only cache. Find from dusk until 10pm when the park closes.

Once again the name of one of my caches has ended up having more than one meaning, though this time it wasn't intentional.

The obvious meaning is that this is a Night Cache in Paradise Park. It is intended to be found after dark and if you manage to find it in the daylight (without a phone-a-friend) I bow to your Mojo.

The other meaning occurred to me while I was there on a Saturday night working on the set up. It has to do with the number of teen muggles that come to the park after dark on weekends seeking a little piece of paradise for themselves. Some of them do so semi-innocently with a partner, others by smoking less-than-legal substances, so beware of parked cars in the dark. A little informal surveillance showed that most of this only happens on Friday and Saturday nights. The rest of the week muggles don't seem to be an issue.

To find the cache go to the above coordinates after sunset (full dark is best) and look around for a yellow light. No, not a reflector or the street light or the one on the cell-tower, a small, dim, yellow light that obviously doesn't belong where it is. Here is even a hint that will tell you something about the light you seek.... If it has been raining all day, the light probably won't appear. If you don't wait until it is fairly dark or have really sensitive eyes you will have a lot of trouble finding it.

Make note of the location of the light then make your way to where it is (you will lose sight of it along the way, it is ONLY visable from within a few feet of the listed coordinates) then break out a nice bright flashlight and start looking around for firetacks.

Follow the trail of firetacks until you see a group of three and search for the cache there. If you are standing right next to one tack you should always be able to see the next one. Look carefully, they are small.

Original contents include a DVD, some books, some cards, a kazoo and some other small items.

Congrats to jcblough for FTF.
