Geocache Description:


This is a solve in the field puzzle, Good Luck

For quite some time now, woodscout and H2O KLAN have wanted to hide a trail full of unique geocaches that contains 81 caches to fill each space of the Difficulty/Terrain geocache matrix. Last year, after completing the Route 66 Geo-art http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC3KD7Q we decided to take a detour and do a little 4X4ing. After taking that detour and exploring the area, we decided this was a great place for our hides. While brainstorming, we decided to expand our idea and hide 3 caches for each space in the geocache matrix. That's a grand total of 243 caches that we have placed for you to find. This is not a series that you will be able to do all in one day. But if you are up for the challenge, be our guest.

You will be able to drive the main road in a vehicle with good ground clearance and get close to most of these caches. You can get even closer to them in a four wheel drive vehicle. Please take the time to replace the cache the same way we hid it so the next geocachers can enjoy their search.

Remember, this is the Mojave Desert and is full of rare and endangered critters and eight-legged creatures. Your walking stick will come in handy when you need to search for a cache under huge rocks or brush, where animals tend to hide to get out of the hot sun. Don't stick your hands anywhere you can't see. There are many protected species in the Mojave desert, including the Desert Tortoise. This is their home! Please take care of it while you are visiting.

Be careful out there, this is the desert! Make sure you have plenty of water and drink it! Be prepared to do quite a bit of hiking. Do not forget if you climb up, you will have to climb back down. Cache in pairs and remember the buddy system. Most important of all, bring and drink plenty of water.
