Geocache Description:

This cache is to commemorate my very first find, accidentally as it was. The terrain is uphill but not too rough, the difficulty can be as hard as you make it. The attributes for thorns & poison plants can be anyone's guess since I was there in the winter and wasn't able to determine the likelihood on those.

This is my original log on the former Back Road Bridges series cache page. *GC1R55F* here... If you're interested, the replacement cache is across the road from this one. I found it when I placed this so mine wouldn't be too close to it.

For this cache, you're looking for a medium sized ammo can in the woods. The cache is not visible but the hint will help. It's very kid friendly, stocked full of goodies along with a log book and pen. Please re-hide it like you found it.

Found it 12/28/2009

I believe I am in possession of this cache. A coworker of mine found an ammo box while hunting on an island in the Banister River. It was found back in November about 2 miles downstream from the mouth of the Sandy Creek where Back Road Bridges #3 is. He was talking about it at work one day and I asked to see it. Since we didn't know anyone we could contact about it, we soon forgot it.

Recently, another friend has started caching so I asked about it. That spurred me to seek out this web site.

I originally thought it belonged at the #3 location until I saw that people found that one on Dec 27th.

I researched further because I knew Spring 1 was the only person to find it so far. The dates match the log for Spring 1, the wooden nickel is there and no one has been able to find it since May 11th, 2009.

Here's the car, it was found approx 20 or more miles from the original location! What a journey!

If the owner will contact me, I will be more than happy to return it so it can be placed again

I got a membership here because of this cache and trying to get it returned. I have to say, I am really interested in doing some hunting myself now. Thanks for the opportunity to return this!

Did you notice that I left your other wooden nickel in there?
