Geocache Description:

This cache is pretty easy to find on a nice footpath.

Eighteen years ago, Chooch created this extraordinary geocache. He had decided to archive it after all those years because a tree had fallen and damaged the site. With the help of his neighbors, Chooch decided to fix his creation. After The Depot was repaired, BluEyz, with help from Massquerade and MadMin, brought the cache back online.

This is an average cache in an unusual setting. Starting about 250 ft. south of the cache, look for a trailside vignette: a door in a tree (N 42° 16.218 W 071° 14.956). The birdhouse associated with this vignette has a number on the bottom and the next two (2) birdhouses along the trail have numbers also. The four digits, in order, represent the combination for the cache locks. To open: dial the combination and depress the shackle. To lock: close the shackle and then scramble the wheels. Try your best to replace the locks so that they are right-reading for the next visitor.

A fun fact: A person who studies trains is called a ferroequinologist.

This a letterbox hybrid cache. The letterbox and the geocache are both at the site but not together. If you are a letterboxer, you might want to check the letterboxing page before you set out to determine how to unlock the letterbox and stamp your logbook.
