Geocache Description:

This Multi-Cache was released to coincide with the Great Basin and Eastern Sierra Geocachers Meet & Greet II  and will take you on a brief tour of various locations in Carson City.

There are two legs of the cache that will give you latitude and longitude of the final cache location. The total time involved in working the cache should be in the area of 45 minutes to 1½ hours. It is not necessary to work the cache in any particular order, but we suggest you begin in the order listed to keep your drive times to a minimum.

Leg 1: Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

N39° 11.928 W-119° 41.250

This cache is a brief scamper from a paved road and is an insulated beverage container. The longitude is written on a piece of paper inside the cup as well on under the lid. The cache location, just south of the fabled Pony Express Trail, will give you a view of the northeastern Carson Valley

Leg 2: Signs of the Times

N39° 08.993 W-119° 45.866

This cache is literally a drive up and is a flat magnetic strip that has the latitude coordinates written on it. The cache location is a downtown business neighborhood that once featured Carson's oldest radio station and Monty's employer while he lived here - KPTL.

Final Leg: Oh, no! Not Another Rock and a Hard Place?

This cache is contained in a .30 caliber ammo can and is located just a brief, yet uphill walk from a paved road. The cache location will give you a great view of the south end of Carson City and the Greystone Hotel facility.

Upon placement, the cache contained the following items:
Dr. of Rockology GeoToken #001
UFO video tape, new
Petrified wood slice, nonflammable
Key fob/bottle opener
Antique coat hooks, 2
Antique turquoise, one pair
Polished onyx stones, 3
El Capitan lapel pin
Toy viewer, plastic
Hang Onto St. Christopher Travel Bug , now enclosed in a safe container, including directions for the requested usage of the TB.

Cache you later, Monty and Teri
