Geocache Description:

You are looking for an Ammo Can. I rated this cache a 2, partly because the road in is paved most of the way, but it is narrow. Watch out for logging trucks.

Since I first hid this cache in 2003 the Bear Camp Road has received a lot of negative press. I believe this is the end result of the new mapping software electronics companies putting the road on their maps without adequately explaining that it is a seasonal and one lane road. Then people from out of the area try to use the road in the wrong season, without experience on backcountry roads, and get into trouble. This cache is not on the Bear Camp Road, but it is on one of the side roads.

That being said, I was taking a drive in the country one day in the late summer of 2003, and ended up somewhere on Peavine Mountain. While I was up there I tried to find the Peavine Fire Lookout, but the sedan I was driving that day did not have enough ground clearance. What the heck, it's purty up there and I had a cache in the trunk all ready to place, so I did. If you manage to find the Peavine Lookout and take a picture of it and post it here, I will give you 10,000 Bonus Points. The points are not good for anything, but you get them. heh.
