North Carolina's Oldest Geocache - Dedicated to my Dad - Top Cat.

Adventuretom is happy to announce that Octopus Garden is now the 37th oldest active Geocache in the world (out of 3,150,000+)

Note: the concept of a moving geocache no longer exists. Please do not move the cache.

This is an "Easy" hunt.

You can solve the puzzle at the first point or with your brain power.

PARK AT THE TRAIL HEAD on Margaret Wallace Road across the street from Fire Station 29.

If you cross the bridge you are doing it wrong. Don't go over the bridge. NOTE: There is NO creek crossing as part of this cache. If you end up on the wrong side of the creek you've done it wrong. Go back and read the part where it says don't cross the bridge. Crossing the creek will make the cache more vulnerable to muggles. Don't do it.
