Nomex: Hi
As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm temporarily archiving this to keep it from continually showing up in search lists. Just contact us when you have the cache repaired, [RED]and assuming it still meets the guidelines[/RED], we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Don't hesitate to email me via the link on my Profile if you have any questions. [red]Please be sure to include the cache name and GC Code, or better yet, the URL of the cache page.[/red]

Thanks for your cooperation!

Geocache Description:

Small cache in a residential/tourist area

I named and placed this cache near one of the first benchmarks I found that hadn't been logged yet. The benchmark is officially recorded as "941 3745 TIDAL 4" in the NGS logs.

Obvious clue: first find the benchmark (GU3223) and then look for the cache. (Duh!)

To reach the cache you will need to stand in a residential street on a small hill near the Boardwalk, and you will have views of Santa Cruz from the cache site. Depending upon traffic, this may not be safe for young children unattended (or for some adults I've watched crossing streets, too!) Speed limit on the street is 25 mph.

Parking in the area is available but metered after 10 a.m., so depending upon the time of day, you may need to drop a quarter (or two if you take a long time!)

Stealth will probably be necessary, so those who have them, bring your invisibility cloaks. (I wouldn't know: I placed this cache at 5 a.m. under the light of the full Rose Moon!)

The cache is about 1.25" in diameter and 4 inches long. It contains a log sheet. Bring pen or pencil.

Enjoy! And happy caching!
