Geocache Description:

Two Micros lead to an Ammo Box. Located in Trout Brook Valley Preserve. Park in the Bradley Road lot in Easton, N41 14.729, W073 20.555

Patience. Not one of my stronger points. The other day I came to this park with the intention of hunting down a cache hidden here. I was in a rush because of a late start, and neglected to pack my rain gear despite the grim forecast. I also hastily keyed in the cords after I arrived in the parking lot, so as you can imagine I miss-typed and wound up heading in entirely the wrong direction. Just as I started to realize something was seriously wrong, the rain clouds let loose. I had to surrender, and went back to my car without ever reaching my goal.

On the bright side, I found one heck of a cool trail while blundering about, and decided to place a multi along the path as homage to my lack of patience.

The header coordinates are for Micro #1, which is near the parking lot (on the other side of the river). This contains the location of Micro #2. Micro #2 has the coordinates needed for the last stage, an Ammo Box. Both Micros are orange cylinders, but don’t expect them to be in plain sight.

IMPORTANT: All components of the hunt are near the Red ‘Ordway’ Trail (rated as 'Hard’ terrain on the Preserve map). You will be tempted to bushwhack between the Micros when you quickly see yourself within 300 feet, but it is NOT recommended and would probably be dangerous. Learn from my mistakes and BE PATIENT! Stay on the trail! You will have a safe approach and enjoy the hike more.

Have fun, and good luck!
