A CACHE-ASTROPHE Mystery Cache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
After setting up my first cache, "Ten By Seven," I caught the caching bug and immediately wanted to hide another! The Ax and I brainstormed for ideas but came up with nothing that hadn't been done before, so we decided to place a conventional micro, which let's face it is a lot easier than a puzzle cache (mine included!).
We had an amazing spot in mind, so even though it was getting late, we set out to take our first readings and place the micro. On the way, we realized we had forgotten the GPS. With only a few hours of daylight left, we flew back home only to find that we had locked ourselves out of the house. I, being the younger and more agile one, climbed through the window and grabbed the darned thing. Back in the car, we double checked everything....GPS - Check! Note Pad - Check! Micro Container - Check! Okay, now we were back in business, and with the sun falling lower in the sky, we set back out. We were cruising, just father and daughter racing the sun, until sirens brought our race to a halt. "Oh $!!$*$$," were the last words The Ax muttered before receiving his $137 speeding ticket.
Finally, we arrived at the cache site. With GPS in hand, we waited in anticipation for the satellites to do their job. What's this...only two? Forty-eight minutes passed before the coverage improved, and now it was dark. I looked over and could barely make out The Ax scrambling through his bag for the micro. With the luck we were having, I thought for sure he had lost it, but a moment later he rose triumphantly with the prize in his hand. As he gingerly stepped to place the micro in our awesome spot, he tripped. "Oh @@@^*," he screamed as the micro went flying.
What a CACHE-ASTROPHE! We've looked everywhere. Will you please help us find our micro?
IF YOU DO, PLEASE SIGN THE LOG AND REPLACE THE CONTAINER WHERE YOU FOUND IT. I'm really embarrassed to admit this, but I also left behind a tupperware container by mistake. (Don't tell The Ax!) I think there are some of my personal notes inside that could help you solve our "TEN BY SEVEN" puzzle cache. It must be somewhere near the micro. I guess you could trade items in it.... Stones CD for FTF!
In exchange for your help, I'm going to at least tell you where you can park. It's at the coordinates above at the end of Equestrian Trail in Weston. Hope your luck is better than ours!!!
