Heartland Cacher: Greetings I'm Heartland Cacher, one of the volunteer reviewers for caches submitted to

This cache was brought to my attention by one or more of your fellow cachers that think this cache is missing and/or in need of maintenance. I want to thank you for the time that you have taken to contribute to geocaching in the past and I am looking forward to seeing your cache up and running in the future. I'm temporarily disabling it, to give the owner the opportunity to check on the cache, and repair it, if necessary. Cache maintenance includes listing maintenance including updating any changes to the text, updating coordinates, removing needs maintenance attributes and enabling the listing. If the owner feels they will not be able to repair this in a timely manner, let me know, and I'll archive it. This will keep the cache from continually showing up in search lists. It can be enabled once you have made repairs. Please use the “Write Note” feature to leave notes on the cache page. Please do not use the "OWNER MAINTENANCE" log until you do the maintenance and the cache is ready to be found again.

When repairs to this cache are completed and it is time to enable your cache, it will be no problem. You can re-enable the cache page by clicking the link under the cache name or by checking the box that says the cache is active. If a "Needs Maintenance" log was posted, you will also need to log an "Owner Maintenance" log to clear the "Needs Maintenance" icon from the geocache page.

I look forward to hearing from you. Do not reply to this email. It is sent by a no-reply mailbot so I won't get it. To respond, please do NOT send me an e-mail or a message center conversation as they lack needed functionality for reviewing. Leave a new "Reviewer Note" log here on your cache page. If you're not familiar with this process, see the instructions I have your cache on my watchlist, and I will receive a notification when you write your note.

"If a geocache is archived by a reviewer or staff for lack of maintenance it will not be unarchived."

Additionally, if more than four weeks have passed without a response, the cache page will be considered abandoned. Abandoned cache pages may be archived at a future date without notice. Don't let your cache get archived for non-communication.

Thanks for your understanding,
Heartland Cacher
Your friendly Reviewer

Geocache Description:

Placed along Independence Mountain Trail in hopes of attracting more cachers to the top.

So, I placed McShepardSons on Independence Mountain. Not many people showed up. I thought if I placed a few more caches along the trail, it would attract more traffic. If you can bag more find on the way up, maybe the strenuous hike would not seem so bad. 

This is a big micro or a small small. The container is a yeast vial used for homebrewing. Only not a whole lot of room for anything other than a lot and a pen.

While hiking along this trail, you can pick up the following caches:

 Congrats to Greasepot and robespierre50, for FTF!

Enjoy the hike. Pick up multiple finds on your way to the top. Be sure to visit McShepardSons at the top.
