Geocache Description:

Welcome to my second easy cache hide. Please park at parking lot located at 40 32.615N, 74 27.965W. DO NOT DRIVE BEYOND THE PAVED PARKING LOT! If you search a little for a clear path into the woods, you should be able to get close to the cache very easily. However, the GPS readings in this area were very inconsistant, so I gave it a 1.5 difficulty. Remember that there is no need to go wading into the poison ivy in the area near the cache.

Has it been one of those days where your hair has a mind of its own? Then you're in luck today, because this cache is full of things to fix that uncooperative hair (an original idea brought to you by my 9 year old daughter)! Please keep the theme when swapping things out.

The cache is in a 4"w x 4"d x 2.5"h clear plastic container with a translucent green top. The park here is used for softball, baseball, cricket, lacrosse, and soccer. If you go during a big game day (I only know that soccer games, during their season, run from 8:30am to about 3:00pm on Saturdays), you'll need to be a bit discreet about finding this one (I might even be there coaching my daughter's soccer team, the Thunderbolts). Please rehide this one as well or better than you found it. Any trashing out will be appreciated (I already did some, and garbage cans are all around the parking lot, so you won't need to carry it very far). Remember that an easy way in can be found, and you don't need to go through a bunch of poison ivy unless you feel compelled to do so!

The cache, when first placed, contained:

- 5 Winnie the Pooh related hairclips
- 2 Floral PonyTail hairclips
- 1 Goofie hairclip
- 4 Plastic Bow hairclips
- 1 Artificial Flower hairclip
- 1 Plastic Button with Bee hairclip
- 1 Plastic Screwdriver hairclip
- 1 Plastic scissor hairclip
- 1 Plastic Pink Dog hairclip
- 4 Small Meta Snapping hairholders

In other words, it's quite packed for the small container. It you can, swap out the bigger stuff for smaller things of equal value.

Mother and child tested, and of course, Father approved.
Enjoy, and have fun!
