Tired of being in the field, about to earn your smiley, and need something you just don't have? Get stuck with a thorn you just can't get out? How many times have you been to a GZ and find the cache just out of your reach? Then, after doing some unsafe acrobatics, you get it, only to realize you don't have a pen?


STOP THE INSANITY!!!


What about the times you trek a long distance in the field only to find out you have to know something you don't know in order to get to the next stage.... such as Swahili?? What do you do - trek back to the car to start over another day?


STOP THE INSANITY!!!


Missing a specific tool to retrieve that tricky cache? Need to see down that dark hidey hole? Sun go down too fast on you? Missing some sort of apparatus to do something special to get that clever cache?


STOP THE INSANITY!!!


You need The Ultimate Geocaching Pack!





The Ultimate Geocaching Pack will fix all of your geocaching problems -- even ones you didn't know you had! You can just grab it --- and forget it! After your first use you'll wonder how you ever cached without it!

Your pack features nearly everything you can think of to make finding a cache fun, easy, and rewarding. The pack is not only fashionable, but durable and built to last.

Through the magic of geocaching, GEO, Inc. has managed to include literally everything you could possibly need to turn that unfound cache into a smiley into an incredibly small pack. Truly a miracle, the entire pack is smaller than a fanny pack, able even to fit into most purses or hydration pack pockets, yet it contains items (i.e., the extension ladder) that are many times the size of the pack itself. Yes - it is magic! And comes in a variety of colors to suit everyone!

The list of items is so big, that we'd run out of time in this commercial listing them all. That in itself is an amazing deal, right?


But wait - there's more!


If you order The Ultimate Geocaching Pack now, we will throw in a lifetime warranty on the pack and all of its contents! And, we'll even throw in a complete set of 4 batteries in each normal battery size! And on top of that, we'll replace them for life! What a deal!!


And that's not all!


If you order in the next 10 minutes, we'll throw in an unactivated set of Groundspeak Travel Bug Dog Tags and an unactivated Geocoin, too! What an amazing deal!



But don't take our word for it. Just look at these testimonials from actual Ultimate Geocaching Pack customers:


Kirbydox said: Wow! By my calculations I'd have a minimum of 37,000 finds right now if I had purchased The Ultimate Geocaching Pack last year. This thing is amazing!

FunSize03 said: Being Fun Size isn't easy. But The Ultimate Geocaching Pack has allowed me to get a lot of finds I couldn't otherwise get ... and to place some caches I couldn't otherwise place. Thanks UGP!

Ian0 said: I'm finding caches faster and easier than ever before... but I'm still not going to log my finds.

Drew8 said: I don't know how anyone has managed to do the African Photo Safari series without The Ultimate Geocaching Pack! It would save everyone a ton of time and make it a whole lot easier! If you're attempting this series, you should definitely get one before you head out on your safari.

VooDoo Karen said: What? That's not my name any longer. I'm not sure what it is today, but it's not that.

About this cache:
This cache is rated 5* difficult due to the number of stops and the amount of tools you *might* need. It's rated a 2.5* terrain only because some will consider it long if you walk it all. You don't have to walk it all. If you do, it's under 2 miles one way, a bit shorter coming back. But if you have to walk over, say, .3 to the next waypoint, you could safely shuttle your car to a logical spot closer and save the walking.

Update: 10/23/2011: There is now a nice sidewalk that goes much of the way after the first few stages.

Including the starting location, there are 11 stops you'll make before getting to the final. Each stage has the coordinates to the next stage. There is only one piece of information you'll need that your tools alone won't reveal to you, and that is: Orange=1, Black=2, Green=3, Yellow=4, Purple=5, Pink=6, Blue=7, Brown=8, Red=9,Grey=0. This will work at any stage that is relevant.

If you have all the right tools then the stages will be not be very difficult. Getting to GZ of the stages is not intended to be difficult. In wooded areas, they are not deep in the woods but on the very edge (and NOT on the side facing the road). That said, getting the answers from any of the stages will depend on the tools you happen to have in your geocaching pack . While I am sure there are some people with super human capabilities, most people will need some sort of tool at most, if not all, of the stages.

Although I'm sure it's possible, do not expect to do this in one run, unless you have already received your Ultimate Geocaching Pack. It may take more than one trip. Or two. Just sayin'.

All parts involve a relatively easy walk. The terrain is not meant to be difficult. But the stages can be challenging -- some more than others -- and meant to bring you through a broad spectrum of techniques. You won't need all of the items in the Ultimate Geocaching Pack, but the more you have, the better the odds of completing successive stages without accelerating through the 'Phases of Cache Hunting'.

Parking: I recommend parking right at the barricade near GZ for the first few stages. There are places to move your car, if you choose, but cache can be walked in its entirety.

There is a nice, large unactivated geocoin for FTF, and a large container filled with, well -- yeah, tools!





ORDER TODAY, AND AFTER YOU RECEIVE YOUR ULTIMATE GEOCACHING PACK, LOG YOUR TESTIMONIAL BELOW!!!




Congrats to Rich & Lola for FTF!



Please re-hide all stages as you found them, or better, to keep the fun intact for future cachers!
