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!
