Artemis: Cache has been missing for over a year.

Previous logs state:
I am going to claim this as a find although all I found was trouble with the Mohave Tribal Police. This was preloaded into my GPS and the pow wow cops were less than friendly. Trespassing is highly frowned upon and I can understand why. I got to the cache spot and was escorted off Indian land.

Archiving this cache as it is no longer there and most likely should not have been to begin with. Indian Reservations are private property.

Geocache Description:

Along the Colorado River. 4x4 not required but recommended unless you want to walk the sand.

First off, the container is from an Army-Navy store and is a round green cylinder about 2 feet long (kind of like a long thermos bottle). At the time it looked like a good idea since there is a rubber gasket which will keep out moisture but in these stressful times, don't go pretending it's a weapon or anything because it's green and might be military-looking to some. I did stick a Geocaching waterproof sticker on it (the sticker is green also, though) so it's clearly marked. My wife Mikki used to live around here and as a child would swim with other kids in this shallow lagoon. The cache is on the edge under a small tree. It should be somewhat obvious if you're in the vacinity but not too obvious. You won't need to uncover it or crawl around. You can drive to within 8 feet of it but only if you have a 4x4 and preferably something lightweight like a Jeep (our preference :-)). It's sandy and sometimes the trail is covered by a couple of feet of water. Walk a little further and get your feet wet in the icy Colorado River! If you don't have a 4x4, you can park about 150 feet away on hard-packed dirt. Remember, this is the desert and as always, you need to be careful about reaching under bushes or even walking around. Just be mindful of the potential for snakes to be sunning themselves or whatever. Cache contains: 1) Cache log and pen + 2 mini-pencils 2) Squishy dice 3) Mini playing cards 4) Small American Flag 5) Something else but I forget what. Probably some small toy. BTW, the opening is only 4-5 inches across so you'll only be able to leave something small. Pictures coming soon and a topo map will be put on our website shortly.
