Geocache Description:


When New York lost the "Logg Inn" cache, we thought it was the perfect time to replace one kid-friendly cache with another. What you will find in the southern part of Central Park represents several weeks of thought and care on the part of the Munchkins. They diligently scouted locations, prepared the container, selected and rejected items for trade, debated an appropriate FTF prize and conducted formal voting for the cache name. We can only hope that the Central Park muggle gods will be kind to their little hearts. (Special congratulations to EastVillageFamily for claiming the FTF!)

Nearby you'll find a nice sheltered gazebo where you may sit and log your find while plotting the rest of the day. Head south to explore 5th Avenue - Tiffany's, the Apple Store, dozens of other ways to spend your money indoors? Or head north to find some of the dozen-or-more free geocaches tucked away in various beautiful corners of Central Park? An easy choice, isn't it?

This is a MASSIVELY muggle-rich area. There is a corollary to the playground mantra we repeat with the Munchkins, "If you can't see me I can't see you" - and that is "If you can see the muggles they can see you!" You might be surprised how many muggles you can see from here. Please take special care to be as unobserved as possible, and please return cache precisely as you found it. A few minutes of extra effort, or a willingness to come back to this cache, may mean all the difference in the world.

Please read this quick note about travel bugs and geocoins... Snug as a Bug gets a *lot* of visitors - on average, more than one per day - and a lot of the cachers are visitors exploring far from home. Often a bug or coin gets dropped off in the morning and is picked up again hours later, by someone who may not be able to properly log the traveler out for a little while. I update the inventory monthly, clearing out everything that hasn't been seen for more than a few weeks. But in several years of maintaining this listing, I can say with confidence that there will always be anywhere from 5-20 trackables listed in the cache that have already moved. Please do not let this affect your enjoyment of the hunt! It's just the way it is for high-velocity caches like this one - the online logs simply do not keep up with how fast the inventories turn over in real life.

Also, keep in mind that this is a small container - although the cache page may indicate a huge warehouse (as I write this there are 21 trackables logged into the cache), the reality is that there are fewer than 10 cubic inches of space to work with. So be prepared for the possibility that not all of your trackables will fit.

Snug as a Bug has been visited by cachers from all 50 states and dozens of countries - we are happy to welcome all visitors to New York!
