Geocache Description:

A traditional cache located near Mykawa Rd, simple park & grab.....Caching by bicycle

A little history: Mykawa road was named after a Japanese naval officer who was traveling by train in 1890 with a delegation through Texas. He noticed how the flat expanses would be suitable for rice cultivation. He returned as a civilian and is credited with introducing rice culture in this part of Texas. The railroad today still has a siding marker "Myakwa", but the local school was renamed Minnitex Civic Center still stands today.

Mr. Shinpei Mykawa was buried in Houston's Hollwood Cemetery on North Main.

So much for the history lesson, cache in a large camo pill bottle with log and pencil. Pirates were always after "pieces of eight" but this first to find will have to settle for just silver.

Have Fun!
