Geocache Description:

The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. Dang I love saying that. Cache is a two stage multi. Look for clues at the posted coordinates.

AIC?? Visit ( www.brazosbend.org / activities / geocaching at Brazos Bend ) - for a printable list of geocaches located in the park.

Once upon a time there was a "little" fellow from the species Rana catesbiana that got tired of dodging being potential gator bait (No, not the cache) so he hopped down the trail past Gatorbait (the cache) trying to find a place to permanently escape those pesky gators.

He settled on a spot just before the Texas Challenge 2007 and made his presence known to a select few daring all to find his location. He was supposed to be one of the First to Find caches during the Challenge. Much to the chagrin of the only person who knew his location, no one was up to the challenge of finding this little guy and the final hidden "treasure".

I don't understand why a "slight" error in listing coordinates caused a problem. Three's and eight's really do look alike. They only pointed 267 feet away from the actual location. Shouldn't experienced Texas Challenger cachers be able to deal with that slight error in distance? I guess not.

I put this cache back in the original location, changed the final container to an ammo can, and yes, listed the CORRECT coordinates for the first stage above. So this is your chance to find an actual cache location from Texas Challenge 2007.

Please come out and enjoy some caching at Brazos Bend State Park and find this cache in a part of the park that until now did not have caches. Remember there is an entry fee into Texas State Parks or better yet, stop and buy an annual pass!!

Congratulations to Piman314 for FTF!!!
