Geocache Description:

Your tackle box is waiting...the fish are jumping...come find this lunker!

We like to think back to simpler times...when CoKe was a nickle a bottle...and Coke meant only something you drank...when cars all had running boards, when a 5-cent cigar was pretty good!

The fishing hole was our hangout...and barefoot children ran through the fields with no cares....

"The Fishin' Hole"
by Everett Sloane

Well, now, take down your fishin' pole
and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
We may not get a bite all day,
but don't you rush away.

What a great place to rest your bones
and mighty fine for skippin' stones,
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade,
a-settin' in the shade.

Whether it's hot, whether it's cool,
oh what a spot for whistlin' like a fool.

What a fine day to take a stroll
and wander by The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way
to pass the time o' day.

We'll have no need to call the roll
when we get to The Fishin' Hole,
There'll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey,
to doodle time away.

If we don't hook a perch or bass,
we'll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw,
and maybe set and jaw.

Hangin' around, takin' our ease,
watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas.

Come on, take down your fishin' pole
and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way
to pass the time o' day.

...aaah..better known as The Andy Griffith Show theme song, we all just whistled it, so no one knew the words...we didn't care...life was easier...

And what could be easier than finding a tacklebox full of relaxing goodies, fishing gear, and more just sitting in the woods?

Just like when ma had the vittles ready: "Come and git it!"
