Geocache Description:

Celebrating my Cachiversary - just a little bit.

For those that don't want the history and just want to find the cache, it's an unused pill bottle, placed along the Illinois Prairie Path. Please return it to the best possible hiding position.

Now for the history:
A confluence of circumstances lead me to place this cache here.

I play a couple other games with my GPS. One is Geodashing. Back in June of 2003, Geodashing brought me near an unused forest preserve in Will County, so I placed GD24-BYYC: Shall We Play A Game?. An off-shoot of Geodashing is GeoGolf. The game follows the same premise as Geodashing (getting close to a pseudo-random set of coordinates and reporting what's there), except that the closer you get to these points, the lower your score (low scores are good). The golf-points are generated by Scout of to the individual user's specifications. The player specifies a center point and a radius, and the computer spits out 18 points for you to try at your own pace.

Back in my third course generated (which I worked on and completed in January of 2004), the eighth hole (GGAAGD-08) popped up at 41.8156, -88.2007. It was so cool, that I vowed I would place a cache there. This cache is 43 feet from that location.

It's also about a quarter mile from Tunnel Trouble, another micro that makes a good companion to this cache.

Cachiversary 3.99? An Opportunity
I like to take each anniversary of my start in caching (March 13, 2001) and plant a cache. I have an application at Will County Forest Preserve for a new one, but it's still pending. That one will be Cachiversary IV. Since this is just shy of that one (and it was placed on my Cachiversary), it's 3.99.

I had picked up this pill bottle micro from Spyderuser's Oh No! - Not another Seed Cache! The container had been rolling around my dashboard for (eek) 14 months. It was time to get rid of it, and this seemed like the right place.

The container may be average, the contents - well it's just a logbook and a pencil, but the hike is good and straight and level. Here's hoping you have fun!
