Geocache Description:

Did you hear about that team, just celebrated completing a huge number of caches. Their carbon footprint must be huge.

They must have driven thousands of kilometres, brought thousands of litres of fuel, needed a few replacement car parts, flown to other countries. Also most of their swaps must have been had an oil component in their production.

Ha Ha. This is meant as a joke, it started as a part of a tribute to someone who wanted to remain nameless. The text has been added to by dealing with work collegues who believe people with my environmental leanings should stay at home and tend the vegie patch and part of the stats read out at the event 9999 + 1.

Just for the record, I think geocachers are very lucky people, as we are continually being introduced to new places that other people appreciate and we most likely will too. We get a good chance to exercise and test the brain power occasionly. I just wonder if we could be approaching the producers of some of the products we use for sponsorship like tupperware companies, to help further develop our interest.

The actual cache is a small container, painted black. Of course the paint ended up all over my fingers. Only just wheel chair accessible. When returning the cache, it just fits into a small ledge in the large peace of carbon. The occasional dirty thoughts about the design of the log it is in will be fine in deciding where best to stick your arm.

Original contents are Blurry travel bug, addicted geocoin, butterfly, love heart and knecklace. No pen.

***Please ensure the cache is hidden back on the little ledge inside its hiding spot***

***Suggest parking in Park st.***
