Geocache Description:

|DEUS EX MACHINA| This cache or mine (and a few others) is/are placed in tribute of six wonderful seasons of the groundbreaking television show, Lost. For those who don't know the show and those of you who do, the story behind this cache is below this.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN THIS CACHE NEEDS MAINTENANCE!

The title of this cache refers more to one of my favorites episodes with one of my favorite character's centric, than it does with the placement of this cache. There is relevance between an important element of the show overall and the placement of this cache though (If you can't figure out this relevance on your own or simply don't want to, see the hint). : )

It could also make sense for you to find my other active cache that I've placed in tribute to Lost, called "Bad Luck", beforehand for inspiration... ; )

Anybody can tell where this cache is placed from the location of it on a map, but as far as the elevation of the cache goes, that's a different story... That must be figured out by you. Look back at the second sentence in the first paragraph...

Cache contains a log sheet and a few items that relate to this Lost character for you to enjoy! Please refrain from taking them though.

BRING YOUR OWN PENCIL!

I think your best bet is to try and find this cache after workdays (Monday-Friday) or on the weekend. Otherwise you may look a little suspicious...

It could even be a little sketchy on the days I've told you to go. These kinds of places where this cache is placed are just awkward when people aren't there using them.

I believe this one can be found around the clock, but don't take my word for it.

GPS COULD BE HIT OR MISS HERE! FIGURE OUT WHERE IT WORKS AND GO FROM THERE! ; )
