When I saw this one, I started to salivate and my mind went flat line… caaaaannndyyyyyy…
Alas, it was no use for me to try to solve this puzzle. My wife took a look at it and said, “Well, what does it need to be?” In my mouth, where all candy should be! She started calling out numbers, so I started writing them down. I plugged them in and it was all over but the hiking. The Mrs. did an excellent job at this one!
Now I know I get a lot of ratjam’s FTFs, so I decided to give everyone a nine hour head start. Apparently the rain and or the darkness kept everyone away. After I made a direct approach with over 600 feet of bushwhacking, I stumbled around for a while before I finally located the hide. I exchanged TBs and headed back out the way I came. It was a whole lot harder getting out than it was getting in.
I was on this ridge once before about 30 years ago, but the tower I remember from then is long gone. In its place are about ten other towers.
The only bad thing I can say about this cache is that when I opened it, I smelled chocolate, but there was no candy at all! Not even one DOT! I think the CO ate them all!
Thanks for another fun cache!
(Nice try B! Sorry J)
