Geocache Description:


Tired of following his brother around Kailua, IMBY, not NIMBY, decided to strike off on his own and head for the Great Pacific Northwest. Twenty six years in the Hawaiian Islands was enough for him so it was time to settle in cooler climes and leave the legendary NIMBY far behind. It was then that IMBY, not NIMBY, discovered the town of Sequim and all the wonderful places in it!

You may click here if you wish to study up on the archived NIMBY.

This is an urban cache, and like the archived NIMBY, should be rated 0/0 instead of 1/1, but geocaching.com does not seem to have provisions for 0/0 caches. However, being an urban cache, it contains risks of its own. The cache is located in the back yard of two relocated Geocachers who are glad to see fellow Cachers in the area. But the adjacent homeowners know nothing about Geocaching and would be less-than-happy to find strangers wandering around their back yard. So follow the instructions carefully and you should be fine. If not, we will be more than glad to provide bail-bond service for the usual and customary fee.

INSTRUCTIONS - PLEASE READ:

1. The coordinates are coordinates of the cache, but you may not get very good gps coverage there, so do a bit of interpolating.  You should be within 15 or 20 feet of the cache before you risk losing a signal.  Best approached from the NORTH, not the south.

2. Please don't park on the main street - it is too narrow!   Instead, park in the cul-de-sac close by, being especially careful to not block anyone's driveway. Then, walk across the street with your GPS, being especially careful to not get run over.

3. You should see a small footbridge and the start of a gravel walkway leading up into the back yard. From the street, peer up the walkway about 20' and look for a park bench on the right side. If you see the bench, then you are at the right walkway and you may proceed.

4. When you reach the bench, have a seat. Please do not proceed beyond the bench, or the relocated Geocachers might be forced to let loose the vicious poodle girls of Kailua, and that could get messy. Instead, relax on the bench and, while you are pondering the complexities of a double-negative geocache name, you can scan the area in front of you for the cache.

5. When you spot the cache container, you will know it! Trust me - there will be no doubt in your mind - you may have spotted it on the way to the bench. The container, however, is immovable so it will be necessary to remove the top and take the innards out. This would be a good time to return to the bench to sit and study the contents, sign the log, and enjoy the solitude. Spend as much time on the bench as you like - we're happy to have Geocachers in the area.
