Whoo hoo! My 6th 5/5 Cache

After work today I decided to check on two of my caches: Redbud Point and Koyaaniskayaaq. I somehow managed rock star parking on Redbud Island and put the kayak in on the north end facing Tom Miller Dam. The dogs on the island truly freak out seeing a kayak so I try to calm them down as I walk it and paddle it past. The current is swift past the dam (as usual) and there were some daredevils on the rope swing across from Redbud Point. After dealing with my caches I still had time so I paddled over to this one.

Really? OMG. I can see it from the water. It was a bit difficult to secure the kayak but I dragged it on shore and steeled for the climb. It's a good thing I'm not scared of heights. I enjoyed seeing tz2008u on a step. From the top it's still a bit precarious to access the cache so be careful. TNLNSL TFTC

I climbed down carefully and was happy to be back on solid ground. And they shoved back off onto liquid ground. On the way back I saw someone JUMP from the top of the Redbud rope swing. I don't think he intended that since he screamed all the way down. Thanks for another memorable adventure out on the Lake!

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.
