This cache has been archived.

NCreviewer: Greetings from Geocaching.com,

I have been looking at caches in the area that have been temporarily disabled for a while now and it looks like your cache has been under the weather for some time. While I feel that Geocaching.com should hold the location for you and block other cachers from entering the area around this cache for a reasonable amount of time I don’t think we can do so any longer. Therefore, I have archived this cache. If you haven’t done so already, please pick up any remaining cache bits as soon as possible.

When repairs to this cache are completed and it is time to have it reposted, it will be no problem. Just drop me a note and let me know the GC Code (GCxxxx) of the cache or better yet, the URL of the cache page. You will still be able to access your cache page just as before by going to your “My Cache Page” and clicking the link of your cache.

I will be more than happy to take a look at your cache again to see if it is still is within the guidelines of the Geocaching.com website for cache placement and posting.

I want to thank you for the time that you have taken to contribute to geocaching in the past and am looking forward to seeing your cache up and running in the future.

Thanks for your understanding,

NCreviewer
Volunteer geocaching.com reviewer

Geocache Description:

This Cache is under water in a waterproof container. You should read the cache description carefully before you attempt it.

The true ratings are 10/10!


This cache is meant to test you physically, mentally, and emotionally.  It is not easy.  In fact, this cache can be extremely dangerous.  Do not assume any warnings herein are made in jest. There is no trail so you will have to bushwhack in the whole distance. There is a very noticeable elevation change.  I could only get 50 foot accuracy because of the obstructions, high brush coverage and the hillside.  The coords above will take you to the edge of the water and the cache is at least two feet below the water out about 10 feet under a pile of rocks so as it will not float away.  Please cover it back up the way you found it.  You will be in the area of Lake Crabtree and Crabtree Creek.

Be sure to bring the proper equipment - rental scuba gear can be had locally at http://www.gypsydivers.com/ - for an under water adventure.  Hip waders may be useful during low water levels.   Do not attempt this cache after periods of moderate to heavy rainfall!   Never attempt to access the area through swift moving water!   You should be prepared to get wet. You should bring a partner. Be sure you know the number of the 911 operator!!

Much care should be taken to write in and study the written log for this one.

Important Notice #1:

Searching and retrieving this cache may take you several hours to complete.  It may take much longer, and require multi-visits.  This cache will expose you to serious water hazards.  If this terrifies you, this is not the cache for you.  You may get dirty, bruised, wet and frustrated searching for this cache.

Important Notice #2:

The final local conditions in the vicinity of this cache are extremely dangerous.  Avoid taking unnecessary risks!  Be patient and think safety first.  This cache is not meant for children. Be sure you have your tetanus shots up-to-date. If you suffer from any form of heart disease, dizziness or vertigo, discretion is advised. Anyone over sixty years old should also avoid this cache!

Important Notice #3:

The nearby Lake Crabtree is full of PCBs which are hazardous.   Don't even think about going near it.  There is toxic waste and sewage being discharged from the nearby Wastewater Treatment Plant. Be sure your health and life insurance are up-to-date should you encounter any problems. If you are afraid of alligators, bacteria, microbes, bad odors, methane gas, staph infections, mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus, viruses in general, flesh eating bacteria or cannot swim, then you should avoid this cache. This cache is only for the most daring and adventurous geocachers who get thrills risking their life in pursuit of their passion - ammo cans, Bison tubes and Tupperware containers hidden in some strange places. This is one of the strangest ever!
