Geocache Description:

A tribute to our local caching legend Gaiter Man, this micro will be a challenge for most cachers! Parking should be easy to find, and the cache is located in a secluded section of the W&OD Trail.

'Ground Zero' is located adjacent to the W&OD trail and allows a degree of privacy from the surrounding hedge. The container is quite small, possibly the smallest ever seen in these parts, and has room for the logbook only (please bring a pen.)

Anyone who has ever hunted a Gaiter Man cache knows that each one is a mind-expanding experience, from 'Alias' to 'Power of Projection' to the famed 'De-Fence-Less' - every Gaiter hide is a rich and rewarding journey. With any luck, this cache will hopefully approach the high standards of a Gaiter stash while creating that same "Oh my goodness, I didn't know that this was possible" feeling when you make the discovery!

Please join me in thanking Gaiter Man for bringing so much creativity and energy to this sport with his unique (and sometimes downright EVIL) hides!

Many thanks to my new friends Mocadeki from Mount Joy, PA who put me on to this container, literally. We met at CCCooperAgency's "Count Blessings, Not Caches' event and had an absolute blast.

I have included a hint of sorts due to concern by a cache seeker about the cache's proximity to an electric substation.
