Geocache Description:

A kid-friendly traditional in Riverside Park

The long-awaited (by us) sequel to Snug as a Bug in Central Park, welcome to Riverside Park's new X-Ray Vision Bug! Another lengthy and immersive project by the Munchkins, representing everything from location scouting trips, selection and preparation of the container, careful consideration of the initial swag (several foreign coins from their personal collection)... and of course a days-long debate about the name. I will admit that I do not fully understand the meaning myself, but I have been assured by the Munchkins that (1) it sounds cool, and (2) if you yourself had x-ray vision, it would probably be easier to find the cache.

I can't argue, really.

After your search, enjoy Riverside Park! It's Central Park lite - all of the architectural genius of Frederick Law Olmsted, with just a fraction of the crowds. We have taken advantage of the space to teach each of our Munchkins how to ride their training wheel-free bicycles here on the wide and forgiving paths - the most recent lesson was just a week ago. And we've had more school picnics and youth soccer games on these fields in the past years than we can count. The Munchkins decided that all the park really needed was was a good nearby geocache that we could use to introduce our friends to the sport, and so here is their latest contribution, along with a promise that it will always be well-maintained and stocked.
