Geocache Description:

Nice easy walk... My 3 yr old has done it with me a few times... Very well traveled trails...

I have revised the coordinates after people have told me that my original coordinates were off… I guess my old GPSr wasn’t as good as the new one…

And a special TNX to PLMAC for showing me the spot in Upper Bidwell Park and for helping research this...

I also did some research and found out that there is a machine called a Bidwell…
You can check out this link - it is picture # 23 down the page…

Little known fact...
What is a Bidwell?
A Bidwell is a concrete finishing machine. This picture is a close-up of its finishing roller. (September 25, 2002 photo)
You’ll see the similarity after you find the cache…

Now… I would like to have any & all input from everybody about this spot…
First, and this part is just a joke, but is it a cement or concrete?
Who built it & why…
And what is this pipe?
Can anyone tell me?

And for more info on Bidwell Park, check out this link which has a very interesting timeline about the park…

And last, but not least, this is a very popular area, so be stealthy…
You can Park at the old rifle range…
And please B.Y.O.P. to write in the log...
