Geocache Description:

A small cache in a neat Colorado location

Once upon a time, a great girl named Claire had a good buddy who moved far, far, far away. She missed her a lot. But, little Claire had a terrific mom who agreed to drive her across several states in a mini-van to see her wayward buddy over Labor Day weekend 2007.


Because there was no lack of things to do, we almost didn’t get this cache placed! We spent the weekend at:


The nearby Air Force Academy


Garden of the Gods


On our last evening there, Little Claire, masmidwest and I went out and placed this cache near our hosts' home. If you are a visitor, take the time to tour some of the things we saw, as they are all within a short drive and can be seen in a couple hours each. If you are local, then try to see this wonderful city through the eyes of someone who lives in FLAT FLAT Iowa all the time. ;-)


This cache is a Rubbermaid container about 1 quart in size. Maybe 4” X 4” X 8”, so bring appropriate items.


I am not giving any hints other than those in the hint area, so good luck!


The cache at placement time contains:

A logbook (in a ziplock baggie with other items)



Light-up hair-ball

Hannah Montana microphone keychain

2 souvenir Air Force Academy pennies

Wisconsin state quarter

Virginia state quarter




A cydriver travel coin from (PLEASE LOG AT PATHTAGS.COM!!!)(masmidwest donated this) and

A MrsIceCreamMan GCC


So, the first and second to find have some nice incentive!


As with my Canada cache, I live about 1000 miles away from this cache, so any help in maintenance would be greatly appreciated. The terrain and difficulty will certainly increased if there is heavy snow in the area. Oh, and, as with my Canada cache, if you want to email me to help refine the coordinates, I welcome the help that way too.


Happy Caching! CITO, and thanks to the Colorado residents and Colorado Springs area for a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
