Geocache Description:

In 1980, someone had a home here. Now all that's left is a concrete slab, some curled linoleum, and a number of trees. Somewhere, you will find a camo'd match container.

This cache is in close proximity to the LM Aeronautics - Palmdale facility, also known as Plant 10 at Air Force Plant 42. But it's far enough away that there is no danger of trespassing on Skunk Works property. What's left of this homestead is not very old, by normal desert standards. Hope the original owners were able to relocate to a more suitable location, far away from aircraft noise and rocket engines...! And I hope you enjoy the scenery. I leave you with your thoughts as you wander and explore.

At my visit in May 2009, there was a large owl in residence in a nearby Joshua tree. Be careful not to spook it. You will notice a good collection of owl pellets on the ground under that tree.

BRING YOUR OWN WRITING INSTRUMENT, and PLEASE PLEASE replace the cache carefully and completely!!
