Geocache Description:

2nd edition of the cache that used to be here, RedDarling-ified. It is still made of PVC piping though. Not our idea for the container design originally, but handmade by Mr. Darling at least. There are Some gravel slopes which may be slightly difficult for the lesser active, nothing major.

FTF prize, you guessed it, golden dollar/pride/and being the first to experience this type of container placed by us.

For months this cache taunted us. We didn't know if it was there, and we weren't looking hard enough, or if high water or muggles led to the disappearence of the cache. What we did know were the coords, what the container was made of, and who placed it. Redwizard has since moved to Minnesota and doesn't appear to be an extremely active geocacher. PVC piping is what the old AND new omcontainers are made from, and the old and new coords are within about 50ft.

We weren't sure how the old cache was hidden. However, the new is in a nice place, out of view of muggles, and is VERY unlikely to get washed away. Local caches include:
Rusty
Bridge View
Wana Via Duck?
Keep Me Posted!
Tina

Where Did The Bridge Go?
