Geocache Description:

Web-ling cache #102

Original Description:
There are those who call themselves explorers yet know not what lies in their own backyard.


I did not spend enough of my time in the woods as a child. If I had, I would have found it much sooner, instead of a mere 3 years ago. It was beautiful, the perfect secret. But then, only a few months before I was to leave, they cut - a huge gash in the heart of the forest, severing 3/4 of the link between woods to the north and those to the south. Nervously, I came back to visit, and found that though standing in this special place I could still see only woods, the cut had indeed come dangerously close, and there were new survey markers within a mere hundred feet. Now I have moved north for good; I can only rarely visit. So it is up to you - will you attempt to save this threatened treasure?

Container: Standard beige Tupperware
Contents: 1 flippitygibbet, 1 WEBN "Last Blast" keychain, 2 Orienteering maps, 1 "Bridge to Ruin, Highway to Destruction" Sierra Club booklet, 1 Petzl climbing gear catalog, 1 suction cup compass, several anti-war pamphlets

New Description:
The cache is pretty much as it was, except it is now an ammo box. None of the original items remain.
