Geocache Description:

This Bug & Coin hotel is very near commuter parking area at exit 1 , western end of I 84 in Connecticut .
[near New York state border]
Easy on-off for both west and east bounders, good parking, short walk, easy find for folks to trade.
This cache, now ,on 5/5/2010 has been moved ,
new location: 41 23.513 / 73 32.260
actually even closer to parking area and better suited to the high heel crowd? [ Be very careful crossing road here, as cars do travel fast at this location.]

This cache is modeled after Jestjuggles TB hotel at other [eastern] end of I 84 and idea & wording freely “stolen”
[per invite] from that site as follows:

We’d like this cache to remain a Travel Bug swap to help them on their missions.
It is a Large deep 50 cal.Ammo Box (generously donated by: Enduring Allegiance76) and will hold all sizes and shapes.
We’d like to maintain a minimum of 5 Travel Bugs at all times.
Take a Bug, Leave a Bug - Trading the same number.
If you have traded identical numbers of Travel Bugs, and can still help one or two more on their missions take more BUT please leave a minimum of 5 Travel Bugs for others to swap.
If you do not have a Travel Bug to swap (and there are 5 or less TBs), please log your find, but no need to place any other item in the cache. Let’s reserve the cache space for moving our hitchhiking friends along.

Park in the commuter parking lot, not along side the road. Park at Western end.
The best place to enter wooded area., is near "bus" sign. Located there are remnants of a large stone wall.
Cache is IN this stone wall, approach from eastern side. It is not necessary to dismantle this wall. The ammo can can be lifted out of wall cavity by first removing some small flat stones that camouflage it.. Replace ammo can as found or better. This area is not prone to muggles, make sure some of ammo can is still visible, this cache is not supposed to be difficult to find.

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

[unless some “jokester” deliberately misplaces the ] erq oevpx [ look for it and place or re-place on top of stones hiding cache if necessary.]
