Geocache Description:

10/25/07: After years of dealing with low quality cachers stealing, breaking, plundering, and misplacing my caches, I'm exhausted. I have tried to provide quality, creative, and original caches for over six years, costing me a good amount of time and money. Sometimes the only reward is yet another cut n' paste log from a numbers-obsessed cacher. Coupled with the ongoing damage at my caches, it just ain't worth it and it's not fun. I will continue my normal maintenance visits but I am now archiving all my caches if they are again ruined by LQCs (or if the cache is controversial in any way). This process may be quick or long depending on the cachers that come here. For the enjoyment of future cachers, please take care of this cache just as indicated below to help preserve this hide. I do send a BIG thanks to all the high quality cachers who have helped support me and my caches through the years. Much appreciated! -CoolCache
One of several caches on the Oyster Bay regional shoreline which will make your time well spent in this mostly scenic area. Usually you'll get more solitude here on the paved walking trail than perhaps the other nearby marina parks.

Parking is available at N 37° 42.851 W 122° 11.643 but please do not block the gate. Like most of the Bay's parks, the standard park hours are 5am-10pm. Straight shot distance to CCV will be around .78 miles, taking the paved trail is about .82 but a little more scenic. You should be able to log several finds along your walk. You'll pass another cache along the way and if you take the paved route, will pass right by my other Oyster Bay hide, "Redwing."

Great views of the Oakland Airport and the Bay await you. Perusing my photo gallery will reveal the double meaning of the name.

Cache is an 7.62mm ammo box where all HIGH QUALITY trades are welcomed. Please conceal well afterwards PLACING DEAD GRASS AND LIMBS that I've put on the cache.

>>> 7/8/05: Upgraded ammo box to a better camouflaged one. Same rules apply please. Hint removed as this one's easy.

>>> 1/10/06: Weighted ant counter-measures in place.
