Geocache Description:

In Flight

Please keep the Cuckoo within the Province of New Brunswick and the State of Maine
This will allow the Cache Owners better access for maintenance.
This is a cache (and a travel bug) in a cache.
It is a parasite........., it is a Cuckoo.


Stay tuned and watch the cache-logs daily. Its location can change rapidly.


To find this GC you first have to find Hobo Jungle (Please read the logs for its exact status)


The cache is named after the famous film with Jack Nicholson (1975). It has been chosen because of the name Cuckoo. The Cuckoo uses the nest and care of other birds to breed her eggs. This cuckoo will use other caches to travel around and she uses the co-ordinates of the hosting cache and the good care of the visiting geocachers. The co-ordinates of this cache are changing from time to time. When you are lucky and find the Cuckoo you can log both the "One Flew over the Cuckoo´s Nest" and the hosting cache. Everyone loves a 2-fer!
The cache is a nest box with a logbook and a tiny Cuckoo. The Cuckoo will not fit in all cache-boxes. It needs no presents, just a little attention. The Cuckoo is a present itself !!

Please Note:
The TB attached to the cache is for mileage tracking; please do not separate the TB from the cache container or pick up the TB online. You may discover the TB if you wish.

Please Note:
In compliance with Groundspeak rules, this is a grandfathered travelling cache (we believe it to be the 3rd oldest still in existence). It is not a pocket cache (all pocket caches were discontinued a long time ago). Travelling caches MAY NOT go to event caches, or be logged while in a cacher's possession. All “found” logs must occur in a physical cache while it is roosting. (People may “discover” the attached TB at any time.) Cuckoo TB Link
To protect the cache for future play, all non-compliant logs will be deleted. The Cuckoo was nearly archived in the past because of someone violating this rule. If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please contact us at The Captain and the Wench (click to email)

When you find the "One Flew over the Cuckoo´s Nest" you may choose whether you want to just log the cache and leave it where it is, or move the cache. If you choose to move the cache, it requires you do do several things, so please don't move it unless you are willing to do all of the steps in a timely manner. If you have chosen to move the “Cuckoo”, please do all of the following:

1 - Log your visit in the Cuckoo's logbook.
2 - Log your "Found It" on the cache page of "One Flew over the Cuckoo´s Nest", and also on the “Hosting Cache page”.
3 - If you are able, please take a photo of the Cuckoo with the surroundings of the hosting cache in the background. Please put the photo on the cache page of "One Flew over the Cuckoo´s Nest".
4 - If you have a plan to visit a new cache within a reasonable time you may take the Cuckoo with you. When you take it, send an email to: The Captain and the Wench (click to email). We will edit the cache page ASAP to show it IN FLIGHT.
5 - When you find a safe cache to leave the Cuckoo in, drop it off and send another email to: The Captain and the Wench (click to email) with the name and GC# of the new cache. We will publish its new co-ordinates ASAP and show it ROOSTING.
6 -Log your "Drop Off" on the cache page of "One Flew over the Cuckoo´s Nest", and also on the “Hosting Cache page”.
