We arrived in Barstow yesterday evening (after getting our "kicks on Route 66" for two days). Today we had one main goal, which was finding the Azucar Mine Offset (which we believe to be the second oldest active puzzle cache in the World). The last two logs had been DNFs so we were a bit worried about our chances of success. Luckily the cache was found without problems. We then continued exploring the area around Barstow, including a visit in the Calico ghost town. We also had our first encounter with the police in the USA !!! While logging a cache at a "Lost Place" the Sheriff suddenly showed up and turned on his "light show". After a pleasant conversation he let us continue our geocaching trip.
This cache was found at 14:04. This was a mini milestone for us: Our find no. 13700.
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
