Geocache Description:

You can park at the Torrey Pines Glider Port. Short hike from there to the cache. Beautiful views on a clear day.
*Be advised this is not a nightime cache. Do this with plenty of light. Location can be dangerous.

This cache is dedicated to my Grandpa Packham. He passed away on the 4th of July last year. My Grandpa was 85 years old and he was a great man. This is not a sad cache. My Grandpa would not want us to be sad on the 4th of July. He would want us to celebrate our freedom, remember those who serve and who have served and he would want us to spend time with family and friends.

My Grandpa Packham was a veteran of World War II, U.S. Navy, where he served as a night fighter pilot off the USS Boxer (call sign Night Angel). He loved his country, he loved God and he loved his family (especially his grandkids.)

I frequent Torrey Pines on a regular basis and my Grandpa built and flew model airplanes as one of his many hobbies, hence the location of this cache. As you find the cache please take a few seconds to look at the black and white picture on the back of the lid of my Grandpa in his plane.

Happy 4th of July Grandpa and Happy 4th to everyone!
