Found it six-pac found SegLOCK 'N' LOCK CITO

Friday, July 4, 2008Pennsylvania

It was raining this morning when I started out, but I figured I was bound to get soaked in sweat anyway. What could the rain do but cool me down. It worked. I chose a parking spot and began what would turn into a day of bush whacking with few trails, but plenty of fun. Straight up the hill I went and as I approached GZ, I thought I saw a patch of mushrooms. What I was actually looking at was the cache strewn all over GZ. CCCA, what did you have in those CITO bags? Chicken? Beef? Wilbur Buds? Based on the teeth marks, I thought maybe D&W or B&J had found the cache, but upon further study I decided it was more likely a fox or raccoon. My first CITO turned out to be the cache itself. I took the container that was chewed up the most. I couldn't even get it to close. I also replaced the BLANK log with a few sheets I had in my pack.
After I had cleaned up that mess, I headed of to bush whack my way to Iron Butterfly, I'll wait for you at the top, Wait! Theres another one here, and TAKE A HIKE!™~HIGH CALIBER. After finding all of those except for a DNF on Caliber, I headed back down the hill to the road. I thought I had picked the right side trail to get me to the CITO site, so when I came across a fire pit IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRAIL surrounded by beer cans, I decided to start my clean up early. How much intelligence does a person have when they decide to build a fire on the trail and drink themselves stupid? Not far to drink if you ask me. When I got to the road I checked my position and saw that I was still a bit off, so down the road I went. When I saw GZ, I just shook my head. I took the picture and then explored the area. What I found was thrilling and depressing. Recently I have been thinking about a Boy Scout patrol camp out I went on when I was 13. I didn't know where we were, but it was my first camp out and the adult just dropped us all off at the site and left. As I picked up trash, I realized that this was the place we camped at. The tree stump in the rock box was my first clue. That was the site of a bee nest that we discovered while chopping away at the stump with an ax. The kind of trash I was finding just disgusted me. Why do people do this? It was not like this in the 70s.

Thanks for brining me back to a place I once knew, but never could find! I had a great 4th of July!

Why!?I don't get it. This place used to be so cool. Now it is kinda cool and really a dump.

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
