This cache has been archived.

Mountain Cowboy: We unfortunately are forced to archive this one. The final ammo can has been stolen. Because of the method that this cache was laid out, the final was at the same location as stage one, it is entirely possible that a replacement container would also be stolen in a very short time. This was a deliberate act that required tools to remove the ammo can as it was chained and padlocked to a tree in a very remote location. There was quite an inventory of nice swag and trackable items in the can and the trackable items have been marked as missing. Our apologies to the trackable's owners.

Look for a new one to replace this in the near future. Should we call it "The Hard Cache"?

Geocache Description:

"The Easy Cache" is the first in series of caches to be created by Mountainfolk406 and HolyCowboys. If you are thinking of attempting this find please read the description very carefully. You might find a hint. Or not! This cache is rated as a 5/5. Careful planning should be made before attempting this hide. You will be looking for a rather large ammo can. Parking is available at the posted coordinates.


We're going to show you what you're looking for right from the start. It's a nice big ammo can.

Warning: Prior planning should be made before you venture out for this hide in State Game Land 295. Check out your topo maps as well as any other maps of the area you can find. It's very easy to get turned around in this area. This is a very strenuous hike that may take you more than one visit to complete. You will be in a very remote area where you will have little or no cell phone service in many areas of your walk. Water could be scarce at many times of the year so ration what you bring. Remember this is a multicache so you will need to get information to find the next stage and final.

We can't require you to bring the following items but you should seriously consider it.
Whistle
First Aid Kit
Water...as much as you can carry
Water purification tablets
Food for more than one meal
1-2 flashlights
Extra batteries
Normal items you typically carry
Items you might not normally carry
Something to help build a fire if needed
A caching buddy
Unmentioned special equipment - This is a terrain rating of 5

Now for the disclaimers: This cache is not recommended for small children unless you are a member of the e-r-h team. Difficult terrain and some vertical exposure may be encountered. Attempting this cache is completely under the cacher's discretion. Holycowboys and Mountainfolk406 take no responsibility for anything that may happen while seeking this cache. Please be safe and only attempt if you accept the risk.

Note: Do not hike in this or any other State Game Lands during the big game hunting seasons in November and December, except on Sundays during which hunting is not permitted in Pennsylvania. The State Game Lands also allow small game hunting during much of the rest of the year, which does not present a serious hazard to hikers, though it is advisable to wear at least one piece of “safety orange” clothing for visibility. Camping is not permitted on State Game Lands so this must be done as a day hike. (Unless you are stuck out there on an emergency bivouac.)

Private property also surrounds many areas near SGL 295 so please respect the posted signs.

Inspiration for this hide was provided by George1 and redtailforester. If you don't like it talk to them. If you don't know Mountainfolk406 or HolyCowboys you might want to ask around. Getting some background info on these two caching teams might give you an idea as to what you're in for. Remember this is a 5/5, so hints will not be provided. No matter how many roses you buy our wives.

Testimonials: "Please, NO MORE. We are not getting any younger. WE GIVE UP, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!" - George1
