MadMin: I attempted to contact the owner of Xeraphas Hill to find out about the status of this cache on 10/19/2006. I have received no response from the owner on the cache page or via email. Because of that I'm afraid I have to archive this cache.

I will be more than happy to review this cache again and (hopefully) reinstate it once you have corrected any issues with the cache. please contact me through my profile to do so.

Please note that unarchiving a cache page places it through the same review process as a newly proposed cache, using the cache placement guidelines currently in effect.

Geocache Description:

Happy Birthday to Xeraphas. This is our gift to you, seeing as it is rumored that you love Geocaching and we're broke. We figured this would be more special, that and you already have the new Radiohead CD.

Located in Weir Hill, North Andover. PDF map available at the trustees website (click the Weir Hill link here on this page to go).

8/17/03 - Team Xeraphas with special guest House9 went and hit the birthday trail and have successfully uncovered all clues and retrieved gifty items. Xeraphas emailed me this morning to let me know he found it, so -- it's caching season. Have at it!

The first coordinates lead to more. Round trip, you'll get a very fine overview of Weir Hill. Be sure to stop and do other caches in the area, "There Be Witches Here" is a fabulous easy one complete with great history to review (if you're into that). There are dozens in the area-- use the 01845 zipcode to search.

Initial cache contents are:
  • Paddington Jr., Travel Bug (he longs to move south, do not take him to points north)
  • Spongebob Squirty Pants
  • 2 Geocache Eurostyle Oval Bumper Stickers
  • 2 "Life is Good"Stickers
  • Several Prefilled and Prestamped "Life is Good" postcards
  • Little Grey Mouse
  • Play-do'h
  • "I Can Read" pin with Danny the Dinosaur
  • at least one Hotwheels car
  • a Magnet Picture Frame for your fridge
  • and ... a New Hampshire Toll Token
