Geocache Description:

This WAS the 3rd in a series of Corey's Safaris from 12/02/03.

But do to the tragic death of Carolyn who was a true hiking partner to Corey, we have decided to rename the cache in her honor.


"August 7, 2008. Carolyn reached the summit of the Matterhorn on her 57th birthday, her last day of life."
Remembered Joy

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all...
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life's been full, I've savoured much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.

There is an old adage Birds of a Feather Flock Together. So this cache has in its flock a Virtual, a Micro and last but not least a traditional cache.

It was also a two smiley Cache.
Smiley One for those that find and log the micro.
Smiley Two for those that go the distance and find the nest.

But now you must go the distance and find this special cache because the old requirement has been changed.

While you are doing the virtual part you may talk to the Wise Old Owl and he may or may not give a Hoot about your flight.

In order to experience this adventure and solve this Cache there are several stages that must be done.

  1. Virtual you must match the Titles with the coordinates. Just like it was with the other Safaris. An example is given. And Email these to Tahosa.
  2. Micro to find the coordinates for the Nest of the Red Hen.
  3. Traditional Cache that is near a beaten path that is off the beaten path and log your find.

Title Coordinates
1. Great Blue Heron ___ 0492094mE 4474585mN
2. Rabbit Run ___ 0492060mE 4474697mN
3. Circle of Life ___ 0492014mE 4474390mN
4. Rebecca and Friends ___ 0494212mE 4471527mN
5. Autumn Breeze II ___ 0492105mE 4474707mN
6. Together ___ 0494169mE 4471472mN
7. American Gold _2_ 0492115mE 4474603mN

In order to find the micro you must take a flight like an Eagle after a Rabbit and you would fly a True course of 182.58° for 11,893ft. to snatch the micro. Your approximate course would be over water and populated areas. And you will land where a lot of birds are resting. Then you will have to take another flight to find the final nesting place.
