Geocache Description:


Who says money doesn’t grow on trees? This magical tree is the exception. You are looking for a camouflaged pill container in a tree. Now it isn’t full of $100 bills but there is some small change in it for each of your young geocachers that come along with you on the hunt as well as a logbook but no pencil (don’t worry about replacing the coins with other coins . . . the tree does that itself! I told you it was magical!!).

This tree is at the above posted coordinates near the Whitemud Creek Community Centre.

**UPDATE** APRIL 29, 2011: I have changed this hide totally. If you don't look at the hint it is probably a 2 or a 2.5 for difficulty. If you look at the hint then it is probably a 1 to a 1.5 so I split the difference and made it a 2. Either way, PLEASE DO NOT DAMAGE THE TREE LOOKING FOR THE CACHE!! The cache is easily accessible without pulling the tree apart.

**UPDATE** SEPTEMBER 9, 2014: A huge branch of the tree got broken off and the old hole is gone so I have had to change this hide again and put the cache in a different spot which is much more obvious. If you don't look at the hint it is probably a 2 for difficulty. If you look at the hint then it is probably a 1. Either way, PLEASE DO NOT DAMAGE THE TREE LOOKING FOR THE CACHE!! The cache is easily accessible without pulling the tree apart.

**UPDATE** MAY 16, 2018: The original money tree was cut down so I have had to change this hide again and put the cache in a different tree. If you don't look at the hint it is probably a 2 for difficulty. If you look at the hint then it is probably a 1. Either way, PLEASE DO NOT DAMAGE THE TREE LOOKING FOR THE CACHE!! The cache is easily accessible without pulling the tree apart.

Warning: the cache area is often a busy place but the pine trees there will provide you some cover to sign the logbook or you can sit at the nearby picnic table. Also, this is a winter friendly cache (ie. it is not on the ground). The lid is not a screw-off lid. You just have to pop the lid off. Please be careful so you don’t break the lid or damage the camo.

*** There is $2 in D.Q. gift certificates in the container as a FTF prize. Please take them so I'll have more room for coins (This is the only business I found that had paper gift certificates because plastic gift cards wouldn't fit. Also, I was planning to make the prize to be $5 but they only had $1 denominations and 5 wouldn't fit.)

Note: This is our family’s first cache! We have had a lot of fun geocaching in our first 1 ½ months so we wanted to give something back and place some caches ourselves. My kids inspired the idea for this cache as their eyes always light up when they find a dime or some other small treasure in a cache so hopefully you have fun with this one (and bring your kids along too!).
