Marko Ramius: Hello, I am a volunteer for and this cache has come to my attention during the course of my usual administrative duties. I appears that this cache was originally listed as a traditional cache but has since been converted to a virtual cache. Since November, 2005, virtual caches are no longer accepted on the website. You can list this cache, however, on the website. The guidelines require that all traditional caches need to have at a minimum a container and a logbook -

Please feel free to respond to this issue by sending me an e-mail at Please don’t forget to include the GCxxxx code for the cache. I will be happy to un-archive this listing once the issues with it have been addressed provided that it meets the listing guidelines at that time.

Thank you for your understanding and for your contributions to the sport!

Geocache Description:

Mystery? Well not really, but the map sure makes it look like one. Nevertheless, this cache does feature a single offset waypoint providing a nice seaside stroll and great views of coastal San Diego. (although a multi-cache, the final destination is now virtual )

**Due to heavy foot traffic, the final destination for this multi-cache is now virtual. Please see below for instructions to log your visit**

This cache is located in Ocean Beach, California. It has been designed to give the treasure hunter a nice journey along varied coastal terrain with the entire adventure to be completed on foot. There is usually plenty of nearby parking as well as a number of fine establishments perfect for post-victory celebration.

The coordinates above will lead you to waypoint 1. Despite what the map shows, you will not need a boat to reach it. Once there you will learn the details necessary to find the actual cache (waypoint 2) which is located approximately one-half mile away.

The second, and final, destination, is well worth the visit. Although the original treasure was a large ammo box, it was plundered too many times by non-cachers. As such, the second destination is now virtual and in order to log a successful find, you must either 1) post a photo of you at the site of waypoint two (without giving away the password, please!) or 2) email with the password:

Your PEARL will be found in this "ROCK-and-roll" song that starts with a "J"

Afterwards, be sure to sit awhile and enjoy the view.
