BCP260 - Mockingbird Hill Lookout
Success! Took a hike out to this one in late December shortly after it was posted. At that time there was about a foot of crunchy snow in the area of the cap. Spent about 1/2 an hour digging around for it without success. Tried pacing from the various markers... No go. Vibraprobe sweeps... No go.
Headed out today via the back roads, took an interesting drive through Water Valley (neat little town), and wound out way over to the base of the trail. Dragged the rest of the family up with me today, and despite the complaints along the trail they all enjoyed themselves.
Found the cap clear as anything, set in concrete right where it was supposed to be. After had a nice chat with the lookout guy (Laszlo), told him all about the game (he'd seen the CSI episode ) and that he should be expecting a few more cachers out this season looking for the cap and the nearby cache.
