Geocache Description:

This is the 11th Letterbox in the Holiday Series! The best way to get to this cache is to take the Foot Trail that runs parallel to the Multipurpose Trail. Please don't take the stamp,  thanks and enjoy!


DawnAIC and I don't exactly celebrate Hanukkah, but since each of us has grown up with plenty of Jewish friends we still light a menorah anyway and watch one or two of the Hanukkah cartoon episodes (mainly Rugrats, ha) and I make some Matzah Ball Soup (any excuse for me to make soup is fine with me, ha). Surprisingly I've only really played a game of dreidel once and I kept winning, over and over again... it must have been like ten times in a row which is either incredibly impossible by the statistical odds of four choices, or we were playing with a weighted dreidel... or maybe it was Irish luck, who knows, ha, I was trying not to overthink it since it won me a whole lot of chocolate coins, ha.

Anyway, unlike the previous ten caches I suppose there's a much better chance of actually finding the letterbox on the actual holiday, there's eight ppportunities to do so! Ha, it's not a difficult hide but I definitely recommend taking the Foot Trail; the coords will make it seem as though the hide is fairly close to the Multipurpose Trail, which it is but the closeness is deceptive because you'll have to fight your way through thick brush whereas if you have the patience for a little walking (if you're out on the trails I'm assuming you do, ha) it's much easier to use one of the waypoints listed for an entry point to the Foot Trail, where the letterbox is hidden a mere foot off of that trail. Please don't take the stamp, be conscious of muggles and enjoy!

Congrats to SynDaLog for lighting the first candle for FTF!
