Geocache Description:

NOTE: THIS CACHE IS OUT OF SERVICE FOR REHABILITATION, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. I have been considering removing this cache altogether because of changes in Bidwell Park rules, namely, the rule requiring people to "stick to the trails." A bit disheartening, but, since so many have voiced positive remarks relating to this cache, I will try to accommodate their "rules" by re-configuring this cache. I have some ideas that might make it even more fun. I hope to get this done by October 1st.

This theme Multi-Cache, is located in the beautiful Upper Bidwell Park. If you park in the main parking lot at the old rifle range (39° 46.329 X 121° 46.725) the entire course is approx 2.33 miles. You will need at least 2 hours for this quest, longer if there are children. Most of this quest is cross country and you can expect to get burrs and seeds in your socks, so boots are the best choice. Each step of the way brings to mind a facet of the Exodus story in words and photos of the actual sites. While based on a Bible story, presenting the gospel is not part of this game. Each station has quotes from the Exodus Biblical narrative but if the player does not want to read these segments, simply turn the page over for the clues and continue the fun. There are a total of 4 containers (including the main cache). Watch out for poison oak which is abundant in the area. THIS IS PRIMO SNAKE COUNTRY, DURING THE WARMER TIMES OF THE YEAR, CHECK FOR SNAKES by using a stick to beat areas you want to search before walking off trail and sticking hands around rocks, grass, and extremely careful. If summertime temperatures are high, consider doing this cache in the morning hours. If not, take lots of water. Bidwell Park is a very popular place with many trails so please be discreet and watchful when honing in on the cache and encourage your young Geo-searchers to do the same. The final cache contains some toys and tools. I hope you enjoy this quest. Special thanks to Pmac for “proofing” this quest.Three of the containers are plastic with. The final cache is a ammo can.
