This cache has been archived.

Rogue Ramblers: Unfortunately we have to archive this, our best camo hide by far. We've been notified that some folks haven't been careful to respect nearby private property and have been disturbing the neighbors. So out of respect for them this one has to go. Thanks to all who visited!

Geocache Description:

Only about 1 in 4 people replace this cache correctly. Can you?

Finding this cache will require you to break a rule published by Elizabeth Post, granddaughter-in-law and successor to legendary Emily Post. Etiquette for hiking indicates that you should not take shortcuts. Now, we're going to let you ignore this particular point of etiquette, because this cache is located on a shortcut between two streets in San Carlos. Climbing to or from the cache may be difficult for some, but only for a short distance. Even if you don't enjoy the climb, hopefully you'll enjoy this view of the bay.

Please be careful while approaching the cache site, as some of the neighbors may be able to see you. Once you get close, however, you should be able to search without attracting attention. Streets are narrow here so parking may be a little difficult. There are school crossing signs nearby, suggesting it might be best not to try this one while children may be walking to or from school.

Please be careful to return this cache exactly as you find it.
