Anyone seeking this cache now has an easy task ahead of them. For the last seven years, this has been a contraption that requires you to place dry sand in the top. The sand weights the mechanism and lowers the container to the bottom opening. Once you signed the log and replaced the cache, you pulled a down on the carriage - this released the sand and the cache reset itself.
This was one of my earliest gadget caches. It was a little too complex and prone to wear and the forces of dirt. Now, for it's last gasp of air before it dies, it is simply a container inside the shell of the original cache. Here's your chance to claim a find here before it's archived - but rest assured - brand new cache with a similar theme is in the works, and this one has 8 more years of experience on it's side.
