Geocache Description:

An easy virtual in SE NM

NOTICE TO "ARMCHAIR" CACHERS - DO NOT CLAIM THIS CACHE UNLESS YOU PHYSICALLY VISITED THE SPOT AND FOUND THE ANSWER TO THE CLAIM QUESTION! SUSPICIOUS LOGS ARE RESEARCHED AND WILL BE DELETED IF IT APPEARS TO NOT INVOLVE A PHYSICAL VISIT.

Cable Tool celebrates the economy of the Permian Basin and SE NM. It all started right here at the cache. This is a local historic site, but probably 95% of the locals don't know it exists. Hundreds drive right past it every day and never realize what it is, or what it commemorates. Without what happened here, the City of Hobbs would not exist.

We had planned to do a regular cache at the site, but were unable to get permission & the area is fenced. Access to the virtual cache spot is easy and open - it's almost a drive-up cache.

If you know much about the economy of this area, the name of the cache should give you a hint what it is. But, in order to claim it, you must email us with an answer to the following question before logging your "found it" claim. We will delete any posts that have not been preceded by an email. Do not include the answer to the question in your cache log, even if it is encrypted!!!!

Here's the claim question:

What happened here in 1985 and when will the next event happen?

Please note: If we answer your claim email and receive a automated return requiring verification of our email address, we do not respond to those as a matter of course. Some of those services are nothing but address harvesters and we choose not reply to them.
