Milestone find #2400!!
It didn't take years, but it did take a few days and multiple visits to complete this very rewarding cache. I think we managed to walk on every trail in the Michael Ciaiola Conservation area, climbed mountains, crossed streams, fought off wild animals, and were getting ready to start foraging for food by the end of our quest. There were some hiccups along the way, and thanks to a helpful hint from poohstickz I was able to abandon my initial wrong solution and find my way to the correct final cache spot. It's so much easier to find an ammo box when you're in the right location and today I was pleased to walk right up to the pot of gold. Getting the treasure out was more difficult and required some team work, but I'm happy to report that after a brief struggle we finally won the battle and were able to get inside. I released a geocoin in memory of our GSD, Coho who didn't make it to this milestone, but was there for many of the others. Also left one of our signature mumu fish, #1706 http://www.anadromous.net/geotokens/1701-1750.html .
