Geocache Description:


A Perfect Match

Ode to the World's Finest Geocache Container

The cache is not at the posted coordinates.  Please complete the puzzle below to obtain the true coordinates of the cache.

 

I take my share of badgering regarding the vast numbers of match tubes that have become Seawind caches, but as you shall see, there is no better choice!

Oh Match Tube, Oh Match Tube

How you do serve

For size and protection, far above the curve

 

 

From Coastal deluge to Wasatch snow

Freezing to boiling, no worries, yo

 

 

Glued to rocks or magged to metal

Hanging in the ouchy nettle

 

 

Bought in bulk - 300 per time!!

All on the Seawind budget's dime

 

 

Easy to open, easy to close

No tweezers!  No folding woes!

 

 

Nice big log, plenty of room

OmNom! was here - FTF doom!

 

 

A match in a bottle of plastic =

Double Rain Shield...fantastic!

 

 

Except Ft. Stevens where the animals chew

For that, a glass bottle will do

 

 

What!?  Match tubes too boring of late?

After finding fifty-five straight?...

 

...You can have your rusty Altoid,

Every scrap of dryness devoid

 

 

Lid stuck fast, log of pulp

Ew!  Yuch!  Gross!  Gulp!

 

Or a nano of teeny size

Operate with tweezers to get the prize

 

 

Don't even try to reroll that bad boy

Let Orange Crash do it - sit back, enjoy!

 

Sure, an ammo would be swell

Noisy, clunky and rusty as 'ell

 

 

Or the ever trusty Tupperware

Broken latch, hanging tape, paint-flaking bare

 

 

Trot 'em all out, caches big and small

Bisons, decons, even a biscuit tin, y'all

 

 

Oh Match Tube, Oh Match Tube

Every cacher's dream

In forests and deserts

You reign supreme

 

 

 

Verify your solution

 

Please contact me if you get stuck.

 

Your reward for finding the cache will be an enormous match tube!  Enjoy the walk through Gearhart!
