Geocache Description:

Decent semi-urban cache in a pretty area. Difficulty is only a 2, although the cache is fairly well hidden from casual passers-by. Bring a picture of your kids or dogs to put in the cache! :-)

I noticed that another San Diegan and I had the same idea as I did this past weekend (07-Jan-2001), so there are now two urban San Diego caches to find!

This one is fairly easy but WILL require some walking. It's on level ground for the most part, but there could be some hills. Depending on which side of the city you start from, you could end up walking as much as seven miles, or as little as a half a mile. This might be a good one for mountain bikers, and it's a dog-friendly cache. It's up to you where to enter, but the surroundings are beautiful no matter how you approach it.

Once you get in the area, start looking around on the ground, behind stuff, etc. Because this area gets lots of visitors, I've hidden it fairly well. You're looking for a green ammo box. It's marked, so it should be obvious once you spot it. Once you find it, please leave a marker where you found it and then walk a short distance away so that if anyone happens by while you're checking it out, they won't see you putzing around in that area and get curious. :-) Then put it back where you left the marker.

This cache (and future caches I will hide) is dedicated to our new daughter, whose nickname is "Chupy" (pronounced chew-pee), four months old at this writing. I've left a picture of her in there with the sign-in book, and would love it if you would leave a picture of your kids, yourself, your dog, whatever. I've also left a disposable camera in there, so feel free to take a picture of yourself. I'll come back to the cache periodically and post new pictures on my "San Diego Geocache" website.

Also in the cache is a tear-off with my website address and a special code. Once you find the cache and return to civilization, you can go to that site, enter the special code and gain access to a restricted part of my geocache site. There you will be able to make your mark for all eternity, and others will know of your geocaching skill (go to the link above to see everyone). There is also a place where you can leave comments, join a San Diego geocacher mailing list, etc.

Naturally you can still come here and leave comments too.

Contents of the cache include some trinkets for man and beast alike. You'll have to find it to see the rest of the goodies. :-)
