    I think we’re close!

    Somewhere, off in the distance, I thought I heard someone singing “When The Light’s Go Down In The City…..”. It was then I knew this wasn’t your typical urban night cache.

    This geocache checks out your gps. If your gps has Chirp functionality, you’ll get a lame text in your gps screen pointing out the cache location. But if your gps doesn’t support Chirp…….WOW!
