This cache has been archived.

CoolCache: ARCHIVED. All my MLK caches have been removed/stolen by someone (maybe a area cacher as they ALL have gone missing. This one had just been replaced so this may be part of a concerted anti-CC effort. Whoever it is, their wish has been granted... this and all of my Bay Area area are now history. Thanks to my HQC friends for the visits and good memories.

Geocache Description:


A dedicated travel bug portal for Oakland Airport. All TBs launching out of Oakland or just passing through will find temporary shelter here.

Nothing tricky here… in fact this cache is designed to be as fast, EASY and yet secure as possible given the available terrain. Cache is literally about 50’ off the Swan Way road. Cache is a .50 cal ammo can hidden near the entrance of “Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline Park” near Oakland Intl. Airport off Swan Way. CoolCache would love to place it closer to the airport but the Port Authority’s long barren access roads to the airport and the inherent security concerns make that difficult. If you have a car and you're driving to the airport, this one's real quick too.

Trading Guidelines: Please one-for-one trades preferred unless you have special circumstances...then it's ok. Definitely NO cleanouts as that's inconsiderate for the next cachers who are often out-of-towners making a special visit. LMK if any bug or coin is MIA and I will mark it as missing.

You can park at the park’s entrance lot during the hours of 5am-10pm or 24/7 at N 37° 43.822 W 122° 12,516 (on the side of Doolittle Rd) for a short walk to the cache.

"T Buggin’" is designed for TB trades only please. Exchange TBs freely making sure you log the trades on their individual websites. Please no non-TB items in this particular cache. Also please ensure ammo can is hidden well again to help protect the little travelers. For unrestrained trades of all sorts, visit CoolCache’s very nearby Tsunami just up the road in the same park.

Also this cache will frequently portal to CoolCache's Tour of Duty cache in Salt Lake City, Utah. Also this cache has spawned some copy cats too. Check out GCWAQ1 too... cool. And finally certain travel bugs will earn a "Totally Buggin" visitation tag.

6/4/05 >>>>>> Container upgraded to larger .50 cal ammo box for more room :)

7/10/05 >>>>>> Now two easy ways in: 1) From the West, up or around red brick wall from parking lot located in park. Best daytime route. 2) If coming from east from Swan Way, look for reflective white dots on fence for entry point. With the latest clear cutting, it's easy access.
