Geocache Description:

Way down in the depths of CR are places that most people will never see...this just might be one of them. Are you brave enough to see what the bowels of CR has to offer? Without further ado, I present to you......





The legend goes that back in the late 1800's when the sewer and drainage system was being created a terrible accident happened. A worker by the name Clyve Johnson was putting in some overtime trying to reach the deadline that was given to the workers to have the project completed.

After all the other workers had left for the night, Clyve stayed back continuing to work away. The money was good and he had a wife and daughter to support.

Inch by inch Clyve worked on the tunnel. "Just one more foot" Clyve said to himself as he raised his pick axe. With that, Clyve made the final swing he would ever make. He had hit a natural gas pocket and was thrown backwards by the force of the blast...

When Clyve didn't return home that night, his wife became worried so she got all the workers together and they headed over to the drain.

Slowly they made their way down the drain that Clyve was working in. They shouted his name a few times but there was no answer.

As they rounded the final turn, they saw ole Clyve laying there with his pick axe imbeded into his sternum. Poor Clyve was dead.

To this day, people say that city workers are afraid to go down in that very drain where Clyve had been killed as "strange" things happen. Workers have reported hearing what sounds like a pick axe striking the gound. Others have reported hearing what sounds like a voice saying "Just one more foot"

While your looking for the cache, make sure you say hi to my friend Clyve while your there!!!
