Geocache Description:

The 2 Dog's first is an easy Cache but still fun for experienced and beginners alike

!!!! IT'S STILL ALIVE !!!!!

Months after we had given this stash up for dead, a closer inspection has found our very first cache alive and hopping....but only just. As stated in previous logs the contents are suffering from the effects of condensation. No worries! I have cleaned them up so the find is worth the effort once more.

The cache is now a clear 5lt container (formerly it was a large black Tupperware Box) and is located near an escarpment that separates suburban Hornsby Heights from the beautiful Berowra Valley Bushland Park. It contains some of the usual stuff and a few surprises. It is called "Frog Hollow" after the rather large Toad population in the wetland area very near the site.

Start your tracking by entering the bush at the fire trail gate on Ulolo Avenue Hornsby Heights (next to house number 50) and it's downhill from there. You will eventually arrive at an intersection, but I'm not going to tell you which way to go, you have the GPS. The key is entering the bush at the right place and saving a lot of bush bashing.The location was averaged several times because of tree line interference, so be prepared for some tricky readings.

The stash is hidden about a body length away from the thick trunk of a very old reddish coloured gum tree and is partially covered with bark and leaves. Be sure to replace the seal properly and cover it again with bark before you leave.

After your hunt you might like to take a drive over to Crosslands reserve, a relatively undiscovered treasure in itself at the northern end of Hornsby Heights. It has all the facilities you need for a great Barbecue/Picnic and will soon to be the site of another Cache.

Good Luck!
