Joint Effort Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

NevadaWolf: After too many DNFs we came out to check. Found the stick, no container. So this one has run its course.

Thank you all for looking for our Joint Effort these last 12 (!) years.

Geocache Description:

An easy, drive up (not drive-by) cache - though the find might take awhile.

Okay - it was time for me to hide another cache and with the help of my dad, Trekrr, here it is.

The location is easily reached by car or truck. A lot of people use it as an access road, so be sure to play nice and park off the road when looking. It is a well-maintained dirt road just off of the north end of Valley Road in the Stephanie Lane area. This is a great spot for a quick cache, or to begin an off-road adventure, or to pick up the caches on Hot Springs Mountain. Make a day of it!

The cache, however, is a touch more difficult. From the caches I've done, I've not seen one like this. Hopefully it's unique enough to provide a challenge. If not, I'll keep working on it. You're looking for a bright yellow energy drink mix container - though you won't be able to see the cache without really looking. Please replace the camo exactly as you find it.

Congratulations to iQueMan for the FTF and the $5.00 prize.

Got this note from geolinux, who had the hardest time of finding this as the packrat wasn't able to move it out into the open:

Subject: I hate you!!! you are EVIL

Ok.. maybe that subject is a bit harsh...

I've actually held [it] in my hand before. -snip- I disturbed it again today, and when I went around to the -snip-, I caught a flash of yellow, since I hadn't put it back exactly as it was.
Nice job... that's a downright wicked hide... right there in plain sight yet unseen. good job

Because of this and other cachers having a more difficult time, I've increased the difficulty to 3.5. Comments on the accuracy of this are welcome.
Hope you all enjoy.

3-14-10 Since the entire stump and packrat nest, as well as a good portion of the sagebrush in this area is now gone, I've adjusted the hint.
