Found it mmacgown found Around the bend

Found it! 4th of 10 for the day caching with Dog&Bear. We weren't sure whether this one would still be there since it hadn't been found in over 6 months. But since the snow was gone we thought to go back and take another look. We started our search when a gentleman and his 3 kids walked by, wondering what we were doing. We continued to search expanding the search area since we couldnt' find it, and that was even with specific information from a previous finder. Shortly thereafter 2 women walked by us wondering what we were doing. After a short time while we searched the man and his kids walked by and asked what we were doing. Then D&B started to tell him about geocaching. They left shortly thereafter. Next the women asked us what we were looking for and we got into a conversation about the park. She and another woman with her take care of the feral cat colony there by feeding the cats, (they are all neutered or spayed)everyday. I was curious about her since she was hobbling in on the trails. So we got into a conversation about the park and when we were describing geocaching to them, we told them that they were containers holding a logbook of sorts and trickets and her companion asked if we kept the caches. When we told them we just find them sign in and replace, the first lady mentioned that she found something in the park a number of months ago, most likely late August or Septemeber. Upon further talking with her, it appeared that she found the cache in the park and was curious about it. she replaced it since it looked like a log that she thought someone was taking notes about birds. But, she also said she looks at anything that is suspicious in the park. A short time later another "cat" caretaker found it and put the contianer in the garbage. She then saw it picked it up and put it her car. Then she started rummaging in the truck of her car, because she thought she still might have had it in the trunk. She placed small cardboard box on the ground that I happened to glance in and I spotted a plastic back with a notebook, which looked like what have passed as a logbook. I picked it up and said something like, this could be a logbook! Upon further investigation, I discovered it to be the actual logbook! and 2 trinkets in the ziplock baggie. She couldn't find the container, but as luck would have it, I had a spare in my car, showed it to her and she said that's what the container looked like. So I asked her if she had any problem with the placement of a cache in the park and she said no, she was just suspicious because someone had poisoned the cats a while ago and wanted to be sure the cache wasn't a threat. She's cool with it being replaced for others to find and she actually showed me the hiding spot which was exactly where we were searching. So we cammoed taped the container and replaced it! Good as new! Just signed in! Thanks for bringing us to this most interesting park and we got to meet a really interesting lady, who happened to be hobbling from actually slipping, falling and fracturing her ankle in this park in February!!

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.
