How Geocaching Works
In the same theme as my Safe House cache (GC157MC), this ordinary “house” should be easy to find, but getting the house open will provide the challenge. The trees in the area may give your GPS a hard time, but you should spot the house with little difficulty. There are 2 stages to opening Safe House-2; the first is a small pad lock and the second is a somewhat unique combination lock. The key for the pad lock is attached somewhere on the “house”. It will allow you to remove the cover which is simply to protect the combination lock. Once the cover is removed you will see the combination lock devices. They will be in their middle position and the house’s door will therefore be locked. The door will open easily with the correct combination. Fully to the left or fully to the right are the positions to try; but in what combination is your chore. It may be the first combination that you try, the eighth, or if you forget what combinations you have already tried, a lot more than the eight possibilities.
After opening the door, you will find that the cache container has a log book, a pencil, and a couple of items. There is room for a few more small items to trade. No bushwhacking is needed. A large parking lot is close by, it’s just northwest of the cache. Getting to the cache is possible via wheelchair but reaching the cache is not.
After signing the log, close the door; return the combination devices to their mid positions; place the cover back on . . . note the guide pin hole at the back-center; then complete the locking with the pad lock etc. I hope you enjoy Safe House-2.
