Geocache Description:

DO NOT...repeat....DO NOT try to access this cache directly from Interstate 8!! Use Freeman Road Exit 140 from I-8.

This is the cache for the kids, where you can swap those bigger swag items in your stash. It is started with several larger stuffed toys and fun stuff. A short drive South from the exit brings you to Old Route 84, a blacktop that was the main East-West lnk before Interstate 8 came into being. It's a little bumpy, but still OK for any vehicle to travel. Enjoy the nostalgia of the drive. Once before I was here with a friend, who found a 1930 Texas license plate, which he gave to me since I admired it. Thanks, Gordon! Drive to the end of the pavement, where it gets very close to I-8, and park near the Maricopa County benchmark (look for the white witness post to the South). From there it is a short, easy hike up over a knoll of about .12 miles. The container has clamps on both ends. You may find it easier to leave the large container in place,and just release the 2 latches to remove the lid.

The only thing that I know I forgot was to leave a PENCIL, so the FTF or subsequent finders are asked to bring along an extra one to leave. I think you'll have FUN with this one!

Update 2/21/12 - The original Large container has been muggled and replaced with a Regular. Coords also changed slightly.
Update 12/3/17 - As noted in recent logs, the old road has deteriorated significantly and has been chained off, so expect to have a much longer, but not difficult, hike.
