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.
