Why this is the Geocache of the Week:
Some geocaches just go above and beyond the traditional idea of what a geocache is. In particular, this geocache combines not only a multi-stage puzzle-solving adventure, but also inventive and creative containers. On top of all that, the geocache creator partnered directly with the Alabama State Parks department to ensure that this geocache will entertain geocachers for years to come. Just a look through the Found It logs will give you a glimpse into what geocachers think of this geocache. If you’re ever in the area, stop in, try your luck at the maze and earn this awesome smiley.
What the geocache owner, Woodnutt, has to say:
“I have always enjoyed working with wood and have built houses, furniture, cabinets and canoes; so geocaches were something that fit right in. Building different, unique and creative caches is what I enjoy the most…The partnership with the Alabama State Parks began with a request by the manager of Chewacla State Park to the geocaching community about placing caches in his park…
I read all the logs on all of my caches, however the ones that are positive and really enjoyed the cache are the ones that I enjoy the most. Creative caches take a lot of time and money to build and place and when you receive a log from someone that enjoyed the cache and their time outdoors makes the effort to place the cache worthwhile. The favorite points are nice to see as well and let others know the cache is worth the time to find.
To the geocaching community I would like to say thank you for your logs and favorite points and ask that you take care of the cache. Sometimes things break, just let the cache owner know so it can be corrected. I have had a number of caches stolen or damaged as I know many other cache owners have which is very dishearten after the effort place in the cache. Otherwise, enjoy the great outdoors and geocaching.”
What geocachers are saying:
“I’ve heard so much about this cache through other finders. I wasn’t going to leave the park without it! I played with the maze for a good 30 minutes and had no luck. One of the park workers and her two daughters stopped to help me out, and finally we had the treasure in hand!” – Leleboo_05
“Wow! This is one of the best caches we’ve ever done and that’s saying a lot because we’ve done so many of your caches, Woodnutt, and they’ve all been so well thought out, crafty and some were just downright evil (LOL)! We loved them all, but this one was ingenious!” – Zargonians
“I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it before, I really enjoyed the concept and the work that went into making this. Gains a favorite point from me and swapped out TBs. TFTC!” – Physty
