This cache was set/placed by FarFetch back in 2003.
Adopted in July 2010 by his good friend TheWeatherWarrior/Stormitecture.
The cache was originally located too close to a deep gully and was often washed away. Oddly enough, Farfetch didn't realize he wasn't as close as he needed to be to the exact corner of DC.
Dancingfool adopted this cache in January 2013
