Geocache Description:

Here is a successor of sorts to my prior DuckNest with Silly Rules caches, GC1365K and GC1DXGY which were placed in Upstate New York prior to my move long ago.

I know what you're thinking.  Additional Logging Requirements are not allowed per Groundspeak rules, and haven't been for many years.  I agree, and if you find this physical container and mark the log book inside, then you found this cache, end of story.  My intent here is not a create a burden, but to add a spark of humor, sarcasm, and frivolity to what would otherwise be a boring old box by a boring old tree.  So if you prefer, don't think of them as Silly Rules, but rather as Silly Requests or Silly Suggestions.  Play along at your own choice.

With that out of the way, like with those that came before, I’ve decided to go overboard, and thus this cache has a handful of Silly Rules.  This time, that includes imposing a rule upon myself: I cannot include a FTF prize, but rather must include multiple FTF prizes for different categories:

  •     FTF(ITRS): First to Find (in the Regular Sense) - Congrats to Sludge_Shoveler
  •     F<=12TF: First Kid 12 or under to Find - Congrats to webohms (or a nephew thereof)
  •     FK9TF: First Canine/ Dog to Find - Congrats to Zoey, who brought her human, Sludge_Shoveler, along to help.  She is the goodest pupper!

Now, here are the rules:

  1. No one may know all of the rules until he/she has found the container, and read them from the the brightly-colored and laminated paper within the cache.
  2. Bring a camera.  Place your camera against the side of any nearby tree and take a photo straight up, then post with your online log.  You may post other photos, but you should post this one.  Bonus points if you can get your face in the photo, too.
  3. and beyond?  See Rule #1.

Later finders may be able to guess the gist of some of the rules by reading the other logs, or maybe I just want you to think that you can.

Cache is a .50-Cal ammo can with Geocaching label, located in Eaton County's Crandell Park, which surrounds a reservoir.  It is a bit of a distance from parking, but there is a smooth and level gravel trail most of the way to the cache,  If you have a paddle-able boat, you can launch near parking and take that across the reservoir and get fairly close to the cache as well.
