How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This cache is placed in honor of the
Pirates of the Carolinas
who have enriched the sport for us all.

The cache is NOT at the coordinates above. 
This is merely your starting place.

In addition to your GPS, you will need a compass to find this letterbox hybrid geocache. You will also need to bring your own pencil and if you have a small rubber stamp and a journal, bring those along, too.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a LETTERBOX HYBRID geocache. Letterboxing is a precursor of geocaching, using compass bearings and other clues to lead the seeker to the letterbox. Typically a letterbox contains a logbook and a stamp. If you wish, you may stamp your personal journal with the rubber stamp in the letterbox (cache); then you may stamp the logbook with your personal stamp if you have one - if you don't have a stamp, just sign the logbook. But be sure to leave the stamp, logbook, inkpad, and instructions in the container.  

At the coordinates listed, you will find a sign and a trailhead.  The trail meanders roughly east.  Follow the trail until you reach what initially looks like a dead end, with a downed tree barring the way ahead.  However, the trail makes a sharp right and continues on.  But you should stop here at this spot and get out your compass.  Shoot a bearing of 120° and sight in that direction until you spy a large stump.  Walk about 20 double paces (count each time your right foot hits the ground) to reach the stump.

Once there, look due east and walk 27 double paces to a large poplar tree with a fork about 20' up.  With your back to that tree, facing roughly east, shoot a bearing of 70° and walk about 70' to find the cache deep in the palm of a four-fingered hand.

The cache is hidden in a lock'n'lock box which protects the logbook, the stamp, the stamp-pad, and the prizes -- trade, if you like, and stamp your journal with the cache's "richness" stamp.  Don't forget to sign the logbook and leave your own stamp's impression there, too.  Please repack the cache carefully.

NOTE AND DISCLAIMER: This cache is hidden in the great outdoors. Welcome to the South! We've got skeeters; we've got chiggers; we've got ticks; we've got ants; we've got snakes and other critters; we've got poison ivy, oak, and sumac; we've got mold and allergens; we've got kudzu and other pesky vines; and boy, have we got briars, brambles, and stickers! Depending on the place you elect to enter the off-trail portion of the hunt, you may very well find these and other denizens of our environment. Please dress accordingly and take adequate precautions whenever you interact with nature.
