Droo: The whole series is coming down. In fact I'm dismantling most of my caches in the area due to the carpetbaggers at GroundSpeak. Too bad, it was fun until they came to town.

Geocache Description:

Part 1 of 4 in a multicache chain. The posted coordinates will take you to it.

Around these parts Santa Rosa is known as a Channel Island, a plum variant that ripens later in the season, and this one produced some very juicy plums and a very nice, scenic ride.

Up north it is a city, a county, a junior college and in Florida: another island. The only saint I’ve found of that name is Saint Rosa di Lima, Peru.
But what does any of this have to do with a micro cache? A tiny little 35mm film canister? Well, that’s for you to figure out.

Hence the difficulty of this cache. I give it a terrain difficulty of 1.5 only because you’ll NOT want to park at the cache location. This is a dangerous spot to leave your vehicle. Park it down the road a bit so traffic (people fly down this section) can see you parked and avoid hitting you(r car).

The real difficulty lies in the fact that the cache is not visible... and must remain so. It is well hidden, inside of something having to do with Santa Rosa. That’s the puzzle.

Solve it and you will have the coordinates to move on the next cache the second one in the series.
"Edge O'Town" A micro cache in an Altoids tin this time. It's got the coordinates to the next cache in the chain.
"Best Damn View" A small Tupperware container with the coordinates to the final cache in the series.
“Hey Aliso, Aussie’s Dead!” A regular cache (a Keychain cache) in a slightly larger Tupperware container.

The first one is and must remain the most difficult one.

Please hide it as you found it!!
