Nomex: Hi BooBooBee
As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm temporarily archiving this to keep it from continually showing up in search lists. Just contact us when you have the cache repaired, [RED]and assuming it still meets the guidelines[/RED], we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Don't hesitate to email me via the link on my Profile if you have any questions. [red]Please be sure to include the cache name and GCxxxx number, or better yet, the URL of the cache page.[/red]

Thanks for your cooperation!

Geocache Description:

Easy park and grab that'll get you near some of the county's biggest birds.

This oddball stop along a busy stretch of local highway offers up close and personal visits with emu, and telescopic visits of ostriches (the owners once told me the ostriches are WAY too territorial to share their space with tourists...something about collecting eggs with a pickup truck for quick getaway).

Stop in for a free view, take photos, and ESPECIALLY take time to LISTEN to the emus! They make the ODDEST sounds...(I suspect some of these sounds were used in creating effects for "Jurrasic Park"). For a quarter you can get a bit of feed and let kids feed a true Big Bird. (But you MAY want to hold your own hand over your children's, lest the birds get too fiesty in their pecking!)

When you're finished with the emu, you MAY want to log your visit in our "on the fly" cache container (a slightly cammo'd commercial pill dispenser).

Update 4/6/2005: It seems several people have had problems with biting ants in this location. When I get a chance I'll see what I can do about it. Perhaps a new location elsewhere on the property is in order.
