This is an old school, in the woods, bushwhacking required cache. There are no trails here. It's a wild and undisturbed area that few humans have visited.
The terrain is hilly but it's not too bad. I hid this cache in shorts and a pair of Crocs on a hot August day.
As I was scouting a place to hide this cache I jumped a couple of deer very close to this spot. And I found the bed of another deer right where I stood. A deer bed looks like a flattened oval in the leaves. And if you look real close you'll often find white hairs in it from the deer's belly.
To make it a little more interesting, you'll have to solve a puzzle first to get the final coordinates. Follow the instructions and you should be able to zero in on the cache in no time.
If you take a trade item, please replace it with something of equal or greater value. Above all, leave no trace of your visit to this cache. And re-hide it in the precise location you found it.
Hope you enjoy this cache!
