This cache is temporarily unavailable.



Hi there BJ67,

This cache has been flagged by Geocaching HQ as a cache that MAY need some attention. You would have received an automated email from Geocaching HQ recently which explained what needs to be done.

Unfortunately, nothing seems to have happened, so I am having to take the next step and temporarily disable the cache - see here: Geocache Health Score. .

Can you please respond to this situation (or indicated your intention) within 14 days, so others know exactly what is happening with this cache?

You have lots of choices so pick the one that applies from this handy list:

  • Check on the cache, repair and/or replace the cache or do whatever else is needed, post an Owner Maintenance log indicating the cache has been checked and ENABLE your cache. Then sit back and wait for the praises.

  • If you really hope to get it fixed but there is some unusual reason why you can't do it soon, then at least post a Write Note log (within 14 days). Be sure to indicate the actual date that you expect to have it fixed so that everyone knows you are on top of it. For ongoing issues (where you don't have an actual date) please ensure you visit the page and post a note every 28 days so as to keep everyone up to speed.

  • If you don't plan on fixing it then you could consider passing it on to another geocacher by asking them to Adopt it or alternatively, you need to Archive it, so it is removed from searches and someone else can have the spot. Don't forget to remove any remnants of your previously enjoyed cache too.

You might wonder what happens if you don't pick one of those. Well, if nothing happens, then a few weeks from today, when I next look at the cache page, it is likely that I will, unfortunately, have to de-list (Archive) it on the basis that it has been abandoned.

Honestly, I'd rather you decide, so please do something before then. Please don't send me an email but instead follow the information/advice posted above.

Geocache Description:

A Tribute to the loss experienced from the Jeeralang BushfireofFeruary 2009

This is the first Cache we have placed, so i will appreciate any feedback from the vintage cachers. Interestingly we have not hidden them in our local area of Geelong, but rather near our parents property in Jeeralang, South of Morwell, LaTrobe Valley.

We decided to place them in a manner that demonstrated a memorial for the loss sufferd from the bushfires of 09 that swept through this area.
The fires swept through the area on 7 February. In their wake they left two fatalities in Hazelwood and one fatality in Jeeralang. In Hazelwood South, eight properties were destroyed, while there was one property lost in Hazelwood North and four in Jeeralang.
The Jeeralang North Hall was extensively damaged, while local timber plantations and farm fencing also sustained significant damage.

From the position of these caches you will be looking North across the LaTrobe Valley towards the great divining range. It is a truly beautiful view. From here you will clearly see the devistation caused by the intensity of the fire as it roared up the hill. Imagine the fire travelling through the this area pushed on by 120 km winds and 49 degrees of heat.

The cache is hidden in an area easy to access, and parking should not be a problem. It is wise to be weary of smankes in the summer as this area begins to revegitate.

Thee should not be any trouble with muggles, but there are many mountain bikers around, so best to remain aware
