We have enjoyed geocaching together as a family and decided to place our first cache. We picked out a great spot, received permission from the land manager, put together our container filled with great swag and placed it in our chosen hiding spot. As we were anxiously awaiting a response from our local reviewer we decided to make sure the cache was in good shape after the rain we had just gotten. To our dismay, we realized the cache was missing. Tacked to the tree that had been hiding our cache was the following note:
I hope you can help us find our cache. The original container was a small clear loc-n-loc style container. The contents included ID Case, Pack of Water Balloons, Globe Pencil Sharpener, Magnetic Round Tape Measure, Pedicure Set, Crazy 8s Card Game, Paul Frank Eraser, Log Book and Pencil, and a Scratch Off Lottery Ticket for the FTF (win up to $3000).
Please do NOT post any information or pictures that will spoil this puzzle or cache. Logs that do contain spoilers will be deleted and asked to be reposted without the spoilers. Thanks and we hope you enjoy our first hide!!
Please replace the cache EXACTLY as you found it!! Thanks!
Please post all finds and DNFs. This will help us determine if we selected the appropriate terrain and difficulty. Also, because this is our first hide, any feedback on difficulty, terrain, puzzle and cache itself will be greatly appreciated.
Congratulations to Mapperist for FTF!!
Edited on Sept 28: I increased the difficulty for this cache due to the number of emails and feedback I have received.
