Geocache Description:

STRETCHER


The above coordinates are not the location of the cache. Use the clue below to obtain the actual coordinates.

Stretchers have been used since antiquity, especially on battlefields and in emergency situations, where wheeled vehicles are hindered by rough terrain. In their simplest form, they generally consisted of a canvas sling with long edges sewn to themselves to form pockets through with wooden poles could be slid. This form was common with militaries right through the middle of the 20th century. Modern stretchers, used in ambulances, have wheels that makes transportation over pavement easier, and have a lock inside the ambulance to secure the victim during transport. Disaster stretchers are designed for easy storage and transport. They consist of a tubular aluminum structure with a washable cloth. They cannot be folded, but can be piled up. As disaster stretchers have no wheels, they are usually carried by three or four people. When they must be carried by only two people, they tie straps to the poles, so the weight is supported by the shoulders and not by the hands.

Cache is a small lock&lock with usual swag. It is a short bushwhack from parking. Muggles may be a problem depending on when and from where you approach it. Good Luck!
