FOREVER.

It was fun while it lasted, but due to the inability of some people to do the right thing and to respect the property of all of the cachers who have contributed so much to the enjoyment of this cache, we regret that it has to come to this. We want to thank all of the people who have visited this one-of-a-kind cache and are glad that we were able to provide the opportunity to you... So, in light of this, plans for TubeTorcherII are now on hold...

THANKS

Geocache Description:

Welcome to:

This Geocache hunt is like no other you will ever encounter. Before you go you will need to know a few things about the hunt itself and environment(s) that this hunt takes place in.


THE HUNT: This is a multi-stage Geocache hunt…you will begin by visiting one place where you will find a “clue.” This “clue” will lead you through several other challenging excursions in which you will be gathering clues, training and experience in preparation for the conclusion of the hunt.

THE CONCLUSION: CLASSIFIED…this is for you to find out for yourself!

SPECIAL NOTES: This hunt will cover some ground and time—it can be completed in ½ day, or less if you are observant, careful and use good judgment. If you are afraid or unsure of: heights, darkness, various wildlife like spiders, snakes, Raccoons, rodents, birds, bats, bees, getting dirty, wet, cold, scratched/bit by briers/wildlife, bruised, tired, hungry and/or possibly lost—then you should seriously reconsider going on this Geocache hunt. One or more of the above elements WILL happen to you on this hunt. However, if you are comfortable with uncertainty and you thrive for the challenge and don’t mind a bit of discomfort then this is the Geocache hunt for you! If you do decide to take on this challenge, your experience will be one you will always remember. GOOD LUCK!!

ITEMS NEEDED:

You will need a vehicle—2WD is fine.

Good detailed road map of area or maps on GPS.

At least two good flashlights with extra batteries (hands-free headlights are best).

Climbing harness with a short length of GOOD safety rope and at least one carabineer. (if you are in good shape, or experienced climber and not afraid of heights you may not need this item—but we recommend it for safety.)

Old, warm clothes and shoes/boots that you don’t mind getting dirty/wet/torn. (No camouflage please.)

A good pair of gloves.

Kneepads highly recommended.

Notepad and pen, and a camera (you’ll wish you had it!). NOTE: IF YOU TAKE PICS, PLEASE DO NOT POST "SPOILER PICTURES"!!! We want this to be extremely challenging to ALL hunters!!! THANKS!!

Water and snacks.

On With The Hunt!

STEP ONE: Proceed to the above coordinates—they are where you will park for the first leg of the challenge.

STEP TWO: Upon arrival at the parking coordinates, take a short hike.

Find the “Corn-fed Twin Towers”

Once you arrive at the target, you must choose wisely. Only one is correct. Use all your wisdom to help you with your decision. If you make the wrong decision…think again.

NOTE:If there are non-geocachers at the target area...wait until they leave before "hunting"

HINT: Let the red flames be your guide!

NOTE: DO NOT attempt this hunt during and shortly after periods of heavy rain or during thunderstorms.

NOTE: Due to its highly technical nature, this geocache hunt is not safe for children.

IMPORTANT!!!!! FOR THOSE WANTING TO GET THE MOST OUT OF "TUBE TORCHER", YOU ARE ADVISED NOT TO LOOK AT THE PICTURES OR READ THE LOGS UNTIL COMPLETEING THIS CACHE!!! THEY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!
