Gideon's Cache


In 2011, I found out I was expecting to be a father.  The joy experienced throughout this time period was fashioned into the letterbox-hybrid cache, Cry Baby, Cry Baby. I was excited to say the least and eagerly awaited the coming of my son. Since that time, we lost him.  He was came into this world on October 5th, 2011 and left the the same day.  It was a humbling, joyous and saddening experience all at once.  The posted coordinates for this cache were a place of solace for us during this time and beyond.  One of the things I had hoped to do some day with my son, Gideon, was to take him caching.  So here, I have placed a cache in honor of Gideon. When visiting the location, please do so with respect for those mentioned there. The residents here are aware of the geocache but may not remember it when you are there. Please visit the posted coordinates and locate the following inscriptions to decipher the final coordinates.
