Hey! Lego My Cache! Traditional Cache

This cache has been archived.

iceleftd: It makes me really sad to archive this one as it was one of my first caches and I spent quite a lot of time customizing the container and maintaining the swag in it. Today I ran into Rowdies in the neighborhood and they told me it was gone. I went to investigate and found only the log sheets, torn to bits and scattered at the edge of the woods. The LEGO freebies for the kids, the trade items, and any tracking bugs are presumed gone, as is the ammo can.

With a residential hide like this one I suppose it was only a matter of time before it was muggled, but it still saddens me that someone was so malicious that they would go to the trouble of not only taking it but destroying it on the way.

I could dwell on the bad ending, but I'd rather just keep the fond memories of all the kids that went nuts over this cache. Thanks to all of you who sought and found it (especially the kids). I really appreciate all the kind feedback and the honor of the 2008 NoVAGO award. As we approach the 10th anniversary of geocaching, let's remember to keep it fun for the kids.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

An easy family-oriented cache that should be a fun find for families with younger children.

Behold the mighty brick!

Choosing a theme for this cache was easy: in our house with two boys (A.K.A. the chaotics) the mighty Lego brand reigns supreme! Bigger chaos even has his own Lego museum in his room with scores of models on display with museum-style exhibit cards!

Adults have been known to be a little Lego-obsessed too!

I've even met a clever geocacher who came up with "LEGOCaching"! See some examples of his craft here and here!

The cache is in a small, wooded, residential area. Children may be playing in the area during summer months and in the winter GZ is more visible to the surrounding houses, so practice prudent muggle avoidance techniques. Please rehide with camo to help keep this one from being muggled.

If you want to avoid a creek crossing, use the suggested parking waypoint.

This cache is easy to find but what's inside is a bit different.

The cache starts out with an FTF prize in it for grown-ups but there is also a FKTF prize for the first-kid-to-find! As soon as room in the cache permits, there will be a few additional NKTF (next-kid-to-find) prizes appearing in there as well. Over time, occasional NKTF prizes may be added.

Hey kids! Didn't get an FKTF or NKTF prize? No need to go away sad! There is also a tub of little bags, each with 10 small lego pieces in it (including lots of special Lego jewels!). Every kid that finds the cache can take one bag for themselves, no trade required!

Note: The Lego prizes in this cache include
small parts not suitable for children 3 and under.

Congratulations to Baseball Mom for her FTF
