Geocache Description:

A log-only cache near Marine Park in Santa Monica.

This is part of my desire, that began this past Spring, to increase the cache density in Santa Monica. I got sidetracked by discovering trail caching, mainly the Spinal Tap Challenge. Times when I devoted some time to making a hide in SM, I took too much time completing one to my satisfaction. Today, I found a cache that was cacher's first hide and was excited to go get it, not having any expectations. The whole experience was fun and renewed my motivation to get more caches out there to provide more fun for the caching community, especially the ones that have just started.

   When I settled on the spot for this hide, it was the 3rd choice. When at the cache site (and the red squares), I was reminded me of growing up during the Cold War. The US was at odds with the Soviet Union. In propaganda films in high school, we would often see military parades in Red Square, Moscow. This was a way the Russians showed how powerful they were. As time went on, however, there was a collapse in the USSR, and an end of the Cold War. The once two most powerful countries in the world are now at peace with one another. Coincidentally, what made me settle on the site was the presence of residents on this street getting ready to go to work and speaking a language sounding much like Russian. Hence, the birth and name of this cache. You will see several red squares at the site. You need to find where the cache is located in relation to the red squares.

   There is free parking available on the street. Please be respectful of residents and/or private property. The cache is on public property.
Congratulations to benh57 for being super quick in getting this one squared away!!
