Geocache Description:

1 cache in a tribute series dedicated to my favorite reality show. This is the only show I've seen that is actually reality. These men work hard in rough waters. This is a small, green camouflaged lock-n-lock. I DOUBT it'll be winter friendly. BYOP&P

Placed in dedication to the family owned and operated Norwegian vessel. The Hanson clan is tight-knit with a definate heirarchy. Sig blows his stack, Edgar keeps his cool and Norm hides. They are among the most dynamic characters on the show, and gorgeous to boot;) The Hanson clan was among the original fisherman for King Crab and "North by Northwestern" is a great book that details a lot of the history and intricacies of the crabbers' lives.

After a short stay in a REALLY superb location, the locals of the area told visiting cachers that the boat launch was "private". Well, according to the state it wasn't but I didn't want to upset the locals so the NorthWestern has moved it's berth to a much friendlier location.

Placed WITH permission and knowledge of the owners, this is another GREAT spot! Crusteceans abound and some time can DEFINATELY be given to walking the area. Lots of food opportunities during the tourist season too. Totally new spot, so even if you HAVE discovered this cache before, you are welcome to check out the new resting place of one of my favorite vessels....well...at least the TRIBUTE to one of my favorite vessels. Say Hello to Toby, Amanda and Erica if they are around, they'll be keeping an eye on the cache and learning more about this "interesting" hobby. Please be respectful cachers and no night caching!

Also, please replace on the same side as it is placed to be out of the worst of the winter winds.
Congrats again to Team Barbieri for the initial FTF....will they be the first to discover the new location?
