Geocache Description:

That Grinchy Grinch is at it again! He stole all the gifts; now Cachemas can't begin!

He thinks he's so cool, so smart, and so brash, the big old meanie even took the last can of Hoo Hash! 

Can you find it and ensure the Grinch doesn't win? Do whatever it takes to wipe off that jerk's smirking grin!

Cachemas is a time for unbridled joy, In this hobby there’s something for each girl and each boy. You want adventure in the middle of the night? Then grab your headlamp and make sure it's bright bright BRIGHT!

Perhaps you think a paddle is much better? Though Cachemas might not be the optimal time to get wetter. A hike through Fountainhead will get your heart pumping, and, with luck, around each turn reindeer will be jumping.

Some go for the most common - the tupperbisonware tube. “LPCs are so clever!” squeels the gaggle of noobs. Others you see like a bit more caching flair. A crawl through a dark, dank tunnel certainly raises your hair!

Or maybe you like climbing way up high in a tree? This must be a Flyingmoose cache - Terrain’s only 3! If being out in the cold isn’t your style, and you’re willing to sit on I-95 for a while, then an event cache may be more your speed, when you're streaking they often fill the need.

The best part of an event some cachers may say? Well, we all have our favorites (like French fries with Old Bay!). While on the subject of a post-caching feast, some prefer veggies, but for me it's Roast Beast. One thing we can all agree on in the end, why it's that caching is always much better with friends.

The Grinch is all wrong, stealing other’s fun isn’t for you! So go find a great cache or two, I recommend heaping handfuls of zgrav's, Moby's, and Serrabou's. Have a great time this Cachemas, and enjoy all parts of the bash. And, please, I BEG YOU, go find my can of Hoo Hash. Park on Wertz drive, the walk isn’t too fah, and when you finally find the can holler out WA-HOO-WA!

Show the Grinch that every cacher in NoVAGO likes Cachemas a lot, even the cleverest cacher who planned a long shot! Who would that be? Yes Hoo, do you see? Who could possibly Grinchily steal Cachemas and then chuckle with glee?

The Grinch stole the gifts and now it's your goal to find them again and make Cachemas whole!

Welcome to NoVAGO’s How the Grinch Stole Cachemas 2015! This cache is one part of a special Cachemas series planned and hidden by cachers from all around NoVAGO. Dress warmly, load up your cache-sleigh, and go seek!

Seek out each of the How the Grinch Stole Cachemas "gifts" and COLLECT THE CLUE FROM EACH ONE. Once you've collected all of them, use the clues to solve the final puzzle and find the Finale! We won't reveal how many HtGSC caches there will be (the Grinch is sneaky you see), but when the final is published, if you've found all the Cachemas gifts, you'll have everything you need.

The clue will be clearly marked in the logbook of each HtGSC cache. Make sure you don't leave without it!

There is a bit of terrain right before the cache, but the Hoo Crew's 3-year old and 7-year old were able to make it work, so hopefully that won't be too bad for folks.

Congrats to Gaiter Man and #1FishinGal for FTF!
