Geocache Description:

HELLO NEW CACHERS! I understand your excitement to find and log
cool caches like this. But please don't break it in your zeal to
find it. Please read this entire page before attempting this cache.
Thank-you ~Dayspring

SPOILER WARNING! If you must know how it works, I have posted photos and descriptions of the inner workings of the cache. AFTER you have found it, you are welcome to check out the "behind the scenes" photos. It is my sincere desire that this cache inspires YOU to really think creatively and make the most out of your own caches. ~Dayspring

PLEASE NOTE: Retrieving this cache requires a simple touch. DO NOT
force in any way! Do it correctly, and the cache will reveal itself
s-l-o-w-l-y with little or no effort.

A mechanism inside the cache had been ground down due to misuse. If this cache doesn't sound right, isn't producing a result within 10 seconds, STOP what you are doing, try reversing what you have done, and notify me please. Do not let this thing run for 2 minutes as some cachers have done expecting a different result. Please follow the instructions carefully and I can keep this cache operating for everyone to enjoy. Thank you. ~Dayspring

NOTE: This poem below was written at the time when most of us were Geocaching with handheld GPS devices instead of our phones. They used AA batteries to power them. Keep that in mind as you read this description. This cache has been around for almost 10 years, so rather than change the poem, I want to preserve it as a testament to where we started.

If you liked Totally Tubular and Totally Tubular II, you will love the latest in the series. Once again, no special tools are needed.
Everything you need for extraction will be at your fingertips. The
cache is a bison capsule, so bring your own pencil. Once it is
revealed to you, open it without removing it. Please DO NOT force
this one as it is a bit delicate.

To retrieve the cache, follow the rule:
Don't poke or pry or use a tool.
A GPS is all you require
And soon this micro you'll acquire.
Don't worry if your mind's a blank
Your GPS you soon will thank.
For it contains just what you need
Just take your time, and you'll succeed.
When IT goes blank, then you will know,
Your mind is NOT about to go.
Keep positive energy facing WEST,
Isn't geocaching just the BEST?

Good luck!

P.S. If you want more Tubular caches, try the ultimate tubular cache: Tubulaire Extraordinaire(GC12WGA). A 6 stage multi with 4 Tubular hides.
