Geocache Description:

Located in Allaire State Park, located on a small island surrounded by water on all sides with only 1 visible way found to reach it without going into the water. ONLY PUT WHERESGEORGE BILLS IN THIS CACHE, NOTHING ELSE!

While I had my whole family geocaching with me, and we were searching for another geocache, we stumbled onto this small "island", and I couldn't resist putting a cache here. The initial contents of this cache were a mini logbook and just 3 marbles (in my rush to wrap it up and make it back to the parking lot in time, I forgot to leave a WG$ or two). You'll need to bring along something to write with. Make sure you mark some points along the way, because the seemingly shortest way back to the parking lot from here became the long way back with swampland we couln't pass :^). All of us (10-years to senior citizens) got on and off the island without incident, so it is possible, but I wouldn't recommend it for younger kids. The whole fun is just getting there. The cache itself is a film canister which isn't really hidden to be a hard find. Make sure you log your adventures for this one. I'll enjoy reading them. Have fun!

Additional notes on 2004-04-24: DO NOT PUT ANYTHING (except maybe folded wheresgeorge bills) IN THE CACHE. I think the last logbook I had got wet because there was too much stuff in the cache, and the lid wasn't closed properly. Also, if you used more than 1 log to cross to the island, than make this a difficulty 5 instead of a 4. On occasion, this may be the only way across because the difficulty 4 log may be under water. This secondary bridge is not recommended for anyone except risk-takers or those who are slightly crazy. Please be extremely careful if you choose this method of crossing!

More notes on 2005-04-19: I reiterate, DO NOT PUT ANYTHING (except maybe folded wheresgeorge bills) IN THE CACHE. I visited the cache today and found it stuffed with all kinds of stuff, so I'm sure it wasn't properly closed at one point because it was overstuffed at one point. Keep this as a log only cache, please. I won't be replacing it again if it gets wet. Also, due to an increase in the roads being constructed in the area, it's much easier to reach the cache crossing area than when it was orignally placed.

Notes on 2006-03-10: OK. I've enjoyed some of the stories for this cache, so I decided to replace it again, and see how long it lasts this time. Remember to replace it EXACTLY as found, and inside both ziplocks. Please leave the one marble for Gilligan!
