Geocache Description:

Once upon a time, a geocaching log was written that said: "TFTC. Every sgl gate should have one. :)" I could not agree more. It sounded like a good idea for a possible series. This is Day Three of the Christmas extension of the SGL gate series.

On the Third Day of Christmas, mrGreen317 hid for me, a camo-taped container hanging in an evergreen tree... *

While the retailers are packing away the Christmas wares for 2017, the traditional Christmas season actually runs from December 25 through January 5, the "Twelve Days of Christmas". Here are some geocaches hidden for the "Twelve Gates of Christmas" (12 GoC) to grab this Christmas season or any other time of the year when geocaching is on the day's agenda.


This geocache is a camo-taped, top-latching container hanging on an evergreen tree at the given coordinates. It should basically be a park and grab, maybe with a little bushwhacking through spring and summer-time growth between the gate and GZ. The location is SGL 184 off PA-53, and even though the cache is near the gate, please exercise sensible precautions if hunters are in the area. During the peak hunting seasons, orange is required to be worn in SGL (except on Sunday, when there is no hunting).

Also, please do not park in such a way as to block the gate or the SGL road. There should be ample room to park to the side of the SGL road so that other vehicles will be able to get around yours if necessary.


Of course, since this is listed as a small, please bring a pen along to sign the log.

Congratulations to r.e.s.t.seekers and ted28285 for the FTF, even if the weather conditions were not conducive to doing "the dance." Merry Christmas to you and your family!

This geocache container will soon be getting a code card that will provide a clue to a Mystery/Puzzle cache to be published at the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Finders of the cache who log it before that information is added will be notified by geo-messenger of the needed puzzle clue once all the clues are added to the caches in this series.

Merry Christmas from mrGreen317 and SageHippo!

* I know, this lyrical phrase sounds exactly like that for Day Two, but the container and hiding location are similar, so there you have it. These phrases won't make for a very good song if combined all together from all the days' cache pages, and they would likely sound redundant, but hey, the smiley is what counts!
