Found it HoustonControl found BB's Sneaky Sjolander Foxes Cache

Sunday, August 22, 2010Texas

No, LA, you did not get them all...

BB, you may want to convert this to a Soda Tube Trials cache, or raise the difficulty to about 300. I came directly over the hill, as suggested by the cache owner (so as not to disturb any bees), slipped and slid my way down to the cache and arrived in one piece. I soon had the cache in hand and I was about to stamp the log when I heard something buzzing around my head. At first I thought it was a horsefly, but it was persistent and I caught a glimpse of the black and yellow menace. I swatted at it with my hat, which only served to piss it off, and it proceeded to sting me on my right forearm and on my belly (I guess it was going for the center of mass, like they teach you in firearms training). I flailed around, falling once, and swatting like crazy, but the bee wouldn't give up, so I used BB's recommended exit strategy! After about 100', the bee gave up. I returned to my truck, to realize I had my GPSr, still had the cache log in my hand, but had left my caching pole at GZ. I had no idea where the original cache container ended up, so I put the cache in a replacement soda tube I had with me and went back to see if I could sneak up from the other side of the tree and replace it. NOPE! As I ducked my head under the tree, the bee came back and started buzzing my ears again, so I backed out in a hurry. At this point, I gave up on returning the cache made a "swoop and grab" to get my caching pole, and high-tailed it outta there!

Sorry, BB, but you couldn't pay me to go back there. I'm claiming my find because I found the cache and signed the log.

It's just that the log is still in my truck right now...

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
