Geocache Description:

A fairly easy cache requiring travel on dirt roads and a short walk through the desert. 4 wheel drive is not necessary, but some ground clearance would be helpful. Of course, everything changes with the weather.

The cache is in an ammo can with some camouflage.

Original contents:
CD, Meet John Doe
Party Poppers (2)
Mini Backgammon game
Bone Breaker (from Derby Dam Cache)
Play Doh
Wind up penguin
$10 dinner certificate (from Another Fernley Flat Stash)
Hand warmer
Thing 2.

This cache is in a nice, but odd, area. The "old man" is easy to spot, as is "military hill" (please do not disturb them). There are nice views to be had, including Hazen, Fallon, Lahonton, the surrounding hills and distant mountains.

Use caution. There are the normal desert hazards as well as some possible man-made obstacles to avoid.
