Write note gerkmax posted a note for Inwood Hill Park - ZP1

Sunday, September 5, 2010New York

I don't think that iPod Shuffle us for me.

Came out as soon as I saw the notice. It was already after sunset, and yes... it was dark! Like DARK dark. I literally could not see anything. So I went home, thinking I'll come back in the morning.

Now it's after sunrise, very bright. Wow! Although I've been in this area many times before, I've never seen this particular feature before. Nice!

Okay, I've found the GZ, but did I make the grab? No. Because someone's pitbull is off the leash (no person anywhere in site), it rushes to me! Growling, I yell "stay! stay!", but it keeps coming, barely slowing down! I make a dash over the rocks, dog still chasing me! I get ready to throw my coffee at the dog, it pauses as if to jump the wall and I barely get away. I look back, the dog is sitting at GZ.

I figure, I'll go to a nearby area (the "wrought iron fence") that I know of, where I can jump the fence if the dog follows me. But when I get there, there's a guy with a small dog, hanging out there. And he wasn't leaving soon. So off I go.

I'm sitting outside of the park, waiting to see if that dog comes out w/ someone attached to it's leash.

I didn't see the dog come out, so I left.

Oh, I'll be back. I'L BE BACK!!

Question... When did Groundspeak start allowing dogs to protect caches? J/K!

NOTE: This log was nominated for a 2010 Metro NYC Geocaching Society Award for Best Log, (See link: http://img.geocaching.com/cache/a9d65769-426f-462e-bef6-c3e429171cc7.jpg ), though I think childofatom's immediately after this one is what really makes it good.

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
