Geocache Description:

A traditional cache with a puzzling twist.

My worst commute experience was when I lived in Boston and travelled weekly to New Jersey. I took the train to the airport, flew to Newark then drove. Not only was this a long haul, but if I forgot something like my keys I was in real trouble. Now if only I could remember where I put the spare key...

Now I live in Palo Alto and bike to work Menlo Park often, or take the train to San Jose. Much better. Even a flat tire is only a minor annoyance. What are your best and worst commute experiences? Please put them in the online log.

This bridge combines a train station, a road and a bikepath--most commute methods. It is near a school, a retail area, offices and homes--most place people commute to or from. Hopefully your commute goes smoothly, because this cache probably won't.

No force is necessary to open the container, only some puzzling. Bring your own pen and please restore it exactly as you found it.

You will find two containers at the location. The old one is badly beat up an inoperable due to people using force on it. I'd like the new one to last for a long time. NO FORCE IS NECESSARY! Use finesse. If you need to use force, you are doing it wrong.
