Found one of your geocaching buckets in the Loch area of the North Woods in Central Park. Since its part of my job to keep the area clean I'm asking if you could remove it. The number on the inside of the lid is GC15BP5.

Geocache Description:

Tired of searching for microcaches in the concrete jungle?

The Ubercache is a 5 gallon camouflaged bucket hidden along the Loch in Central Park. The Loch is part of the ninety acre northern section of the park known as the North Woods. It connects The Pool to the south and Lasker Rink to the north and lies at the bottom of The Ravine, the only stream valley in Central Park.

Sitting along the Loch on a deep summer’s day, listening to the frothy chatter of one of the cascades, smelling the forsythia, it would be easy to imagine yourself deep in a northern forest, miles from the honking clangor of the city streets just a thousand yards away. When you find The Ubercache, take a moment to enjoy your surroundings.

Although technically a 'large' cache, The Ubercache is uber by Manhattan standards. In fact, I believe it is the largest active cache in Manhattan. But don't expect it to be an easy find. The Ubercache is well hidden, and only slightly visible from a certain angle.

After exchanging uberitems and signing the uberlog, please put The Ubercache back exactly how you found it, and make sure the lid is completely on and sealed. Because of its location, this is very, very important.

First to find receives the FTF Ubercoin. There are also plenty of goodies for second to find, third to find, and so on. We wish you the best of luck on your journey to The Ubercache, and let us know your thoughts on this beautiful area of the park.
