Geocache Description:


(Cache is placed on private land, with the owner's permission.)

In the grand tradition of hiding a Silver Ammo Can to recognize major milestone finds, this cache is placed as a tribute to my very dear friends maryufaust and Quilting is fun too! I've shared countless hours, adventures, and caching memories with Mary and QIFT, and consider myself very blessed indeed to have them in my life.

Recently, Mary found her 3,000th cache and QIFT just passed 2,000. So when Seeingitdifferent offered up ammo cans for a couple of tribute caches, I jumped at the chance to create this combo tribute cache instead. And since 5,000 is such a cool number, I couldn't help but create an appropriately-themed puzzle around the dual milestone. As an added bonus and as an appropriate tribute to my two friends, I've also stuffed this cache full of pretty pink toys and trinkets.

Please note, this cache is placed on private property. However, the property owner picked the final hide location and specifically asked me to put a cache there, so how could I refuse? :-) You will find lots of room for your car at the park across the street. From there it's a straight shot down the park driveway, across the street, across the open space, and to the cache location. The property owner is the house on your right, and they hope you enjoy your time here in their backyard. The puzzle starts below...congrats again to Mary and QIFT, and as always: thanks, have fun, and happy hunting!
