MadMin: I attempted to contact the owner of Mutton Box to find out about the status of this cache on April 10, 2010. I have received no response from the owner on the cache page or via email. Because of that I'm afraid I have to archive this cache.

I will be more than happy to review this cache again and (hopefully) reinstate it once you have corrected any issues with the cache. please contact me via to do so.

Please note that unarchiving a cache page places it through the same review process as a newly proposed cache, using the cache placement guidelines currently in effect.

Geocache Description:

Mutton box. Contains sheep related items. "Have a mutton? Leave a mutton. Need a mutton? Take a mutton."

The log book is there, you just have to look!

There is a lot of fear-mongering in the comments about this being an unsafe place to leave TBs. We've been at this location for many years now, and we find that the only thing that has changed is that people have left comments suggesting it to be unsafe. It might be true that some TBs have gotten lost and indeed stolen, however we attribute this fact to the the "fear" of leaving something, which causes less traffic, which causes there to be less time between visits, which causes a larger chance that a neighborhood kid will stumble upon your cache.

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

[We want you to feel safe to leave your TBs here, so if you want to leave one in a safer location (not that we think it's really all that "unsafe"), bring a paper note that you can place in the cache, then ] yrnir gur npghny vgrz "vafvqr" va gur erq yvq ba gur pbhagre.
