Sandy Creek Cowboy Cache No. 7
In California, United States
How Geocaching Works
The coordinates will take y’ right to th’ container and you’ll have no trouble at all spottin’ it. Then th’ fun begins. Just remember that in Geocaching as in life patience is a virtue. There’s one clear path to th’ container but if by some unlucky chance y’ do wander into a Chamise thicket then be sure t’ hold your arms and hands up over y’r head an’ push through th’ thicket backwards.
Howdy partner, do y’ feel lucky today? Well good for you, f’r sure you’ve come to th’ right cache. You’re goin’ t’ need all th’ cowboy-luck you can get t’ score this unusual micro cache.
Most nights after supper ‘round th’ ol’ chuck wagon th’ Sandy Creek Cowboys usually break out their time-worn deck o’ cards t’ deal a few friendly hands o’ draw poker. It ain’t so much th’ gamblin’ that counts, its more like an easy way t’ pass th’ twilight hours b’fore heading into th’ bunkhouse with all o’ them beans.
Yep, let’s face it, cowboys shore do love t’ gamble. Fifty-two of anything is bound t’ get their attention most any ol’ time. That’s just th’ mood they were in when they thought of this lucky-seven cowboy cache. So what about you?
Do you have an affliction f’r th’ gamblin numbers such as seven, eleven, and fifty-two? If so then this here Geocache will be a real treat f’r y’r gamblin’ instincts. By th’ way, how do y’ feel about number seventy?
Question: What’s y’r chance o’ layin’ hands on th’ log container on y’r very first try?
Answer: Hey, either y’ do or y’ don’t, right? There's only two outcomes.
Cowboy Logic: That's what they call a fifty-fifty chance. True f’r each and every trial by th’ way.
Now don’t go givin’ up, buckaroo, y’r job is t’ keep on pitchin’ ‘til y’ win. When y’r ready t’ pack up and pull out than please don’t f’rget t’ reset th’ game and shuffle th’ pieces f’r th’ next player. Feel free t' drop small trade items into th' game so's things get harder as time goes on.
Don’t be markin’ th’ hole-card t’ spoil th’ game nor t’ make it easier f’r th’ next finder. Control y’r self, it ain’t nice t’ mess with a cowboy cache.
While you're hunting the cache do notice the hearty and vividly green Mountain/Western Peony plants all 'round the cache area. Peony blossoms of summer are quite remarkable but very shy and hide their glory by hanging down to nearly touch the ground. A couple of photos are provided below.
Y’all be good now,
The Sandy Creek Cowboys
