Geocache Description:

A little-known area protected by the City of Oakdale. My old office window overlooks it.

Co-worker "Cards" and I decided to put a geocache behind our office. This is an area between a housing development and an industrial area that will not be built upon and contains a stream and a few ponds. I've many times seen deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, geese, many types of ducks and birds, and even cats out there. Now, there's an occasional geocacher.

Note, as of December 2010, I no longer work here, but my ex-coworkers know about the cache and are comfortable with it there... and enjoy catching seeing a random person hiking through with a GPS in hand.

Park to the east of the cache on a small road off of Helmo Ave. You'll figure out a place to get on a paved trail. The trail only goes about half-way to the cache. When you get to the cache area, the building directly to your west is where I work. If you see me or my co-worker waving, please wave back.

Please mind the small trees when walking through this area. Some have been very recently planted and are hard to see.

Original content was stuff we found around the office: A 2005 sticker-calendar, chopsticks, a new box of 3.5" disks, a jewel case, a PS2 or Serial mouse, a cool computer power cord, a keychain, 89.3FM coaster, and some other stuff.

This cache is an ammo can that was previously used as a toolbox by Jenny Moberg (1959-2005). I am friends with one of her nephews, Ben. After she passed away, in trying to give away some of the things she left behind, Ben offered this ammo can to me knowing I could use it as a geocache. He thought it would be a good use for it. Please keep the history of this cache in mind and take care of it.
