Geocache Description:



*** CHIRP CACHE: REQUIRES SPECIAL EQUIPMENT ***


As you may have guessed from the title, this two-stage multicache employs a Chirp Wireless Beacon and thus requires that you use a compatible GPS units. The Groundspeak guidelines do not allow me to list the compatible models here; if you're unsure if your unit is Chirp compatible, search the forums or shoot me an email and I'll let you know the exact model numbers that will work.

If you arrive at the listed coordinates with any other type of GPS receiver you will be sadly disappointed. If you fit this profile and can't team up with a geocaching buddy who owns an appropriate model, shoot me an email and I'll make an effort to meet you and let you borrow my unit for the hunt.

For those suitably equipped, when you show up at the listed coordinates remember to visit your Setup-->Geocaching menu to turn on Chirp Searching. Once connected you'll receive information directing you to the final cache location.

This hunt involves stimulating scenery, strolling along a nicely maintained trail, a brand-spanking-new footbridge, and a fun hunt. It also involves loose rocky terrain, challenging elevation changes, and potential encounters with snakes, biting insects, poisonous plants, and other natural hazards. If you choose to attempt this cache after heavy rainfall, a direct approach may lead you into harm's way. If you take along your children, proceed slowly and use good judgement. And be sure that you wear appropriate footwear; this is not flip-flop territory.

As you (finally) approach Ground Zero, you'll be looking for a camouflaged Witz case holding a logsheet and a few small trade items. You may encounter some feathered cache guardians nearby. Chirp, chirp!
