Geocache Description:

Another urban micro in the Isaac's theme. For the sake of the landscaping, you can skip the mulched area. Cross it gingerly if you must, but you don't need to tear anything up. In fact, all you need are good observational skills. The high difficulty is due to the size (bison tube) and muggle exposure. Timming can be everything in this area.


Now I know you all are wondering just how a Klingon's glorious death could have anything to do with a sandwich shop, but bear with me for a bit and all will become as logical as a Vulcan's laundry list.

It is common knowledge that "when a worthy Klingon warrior dies, his fellow comrades will roar and howl to warn the dead that a fearsome and honorable soul is about to join Kahless The Unforgettable and enter Sto-Vo-Kor, being the after-life domain of fallen warriors".

Well OK, maybe you didn't know that. I had to look it up to get the specifics (imagine that), but I knew the concept and Sto-Vo-Kor rang a bell. Anyway, as you may well imagine, many a fearsome Klingon has met his death while at his post on a Klingon Bird of Prey. This small but formidable craft has carried plenty of Klingons to the gates of Sto-Vo-Kor. As the ship erupts in a firey explosion of plasma, gack rations and disruptor parts, it appears for a brief moment that the craft has become a flaming Phoenix.

Short lived as this spectacle is, it brings to mind that tasty sandwich that you can find at Isaac's: The Phoenix. This is of course one of my favorites and I feel a bit like Pavlov's dog as I write this.

At any rate, should you choose to embrace my logical conclusion that this cache is aptly named, then I bid thee Kapláh! May your search end in glorious victory. If you think I am yet another sorry epitomemy of geekdom gone wry, then may you wander the endless rocky terrain of Kissel Hill whilst being eyed by a huge sinister rabbit and never find this tricky little cache.
