Found it Team Mumu found Stamps or not

Tuesday, August 2, 2011New York

Find #3100! When I was a child, my mother thought I should take up stamp collecting because it was educational and she presented me with a block of Eisenhower stamps. I'll date myself and admit he was president when I was born. My collection grew until one day in horror my mother discovered I had decoupaged some of my stamp collection to decorate the outside of a box. I liked the stamps because they were pretty, and it made more sense to me to display them that way then to leave them in some boring old book. As an adult I continue to amass stamps as pretty souvenirs of places visited or maybe places to be visited one day. I hadn't looked at them in a while, so it was with pleasure that I went through some of the collection looking for duplicates with presidents this morning. I found a few presidents, one vice president and then branched out and grabbed some foreign heads to make a set to leave in the cache.

Finding the cache took longer than I expected. Upon arrival I found the place hoppin' with activity. Gardeners working, tennis players playing, people watching the players, some guys lunching, you name it and they had descended on this Millwood park on a weekday afternoon. I got the brilliant notion to loop around and approach the cache through the woods from the north thinking that would be stealthier. I'm wearing green after all, more of a bright tie-dye green than cammo, but what the heck, I blend in with the trees. I see the perfect spot for a cache and ..... nope not there. I continue gradually getting closer and closer to the people and finally spot it. I quickly signed in and remembered to leave the stamps and mumu fish #2030 http://www.anadromous.net/geotokens/2001-2050.html . If anyone noticed me, they decided to avoid making eye contact with the crazy lady who'd been lurking in the trees.

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.
