CONGRATULATIONS to Geocashers for FTF and HikerMyke for STF you guys are FAST

My Gyppo Lock Box is missing...

A Gyppo Lock Box is used to hide a Gyppo's meager cribbage winnings...

as he knows he won't make money in his chosen profession.

It is the day after "Movie Night" and a lovely day to be in the park.

That is when the box went missing…..

Last time it was seen was on the Bernal Hill Trail in beautiful Santa Teresa Park, please help me find it!

I've heard it is in a nice shady well protected setting

The Cache you are helping me locate is a black metal pill bottle the size of a "D" battery hidden fully inside the Gyppo Lock Box.

A log is inside, no pen/pencil, and a couple of small trade items are inside.

Camo is visible from trail and is on uphill side of trail, no PO was in the area, hope it stays that way

a key is required and is attached to the device a few inches from the obvious entry point.

Once key is exposed, the color-coded key will match the keyhole etc...

If key is missing/lost, use anything that isn't pointy, a broken toothpick will suffice.

Please re-lock, replace key in holder, and place back in original location for next Geocacher.

Have Fun!!
