Found it elrojo14 found I really can't hear you now!

So I discovered that the USCGC Fir (WLM-212) was now anchored out this way and this was the closest cache that wouldn't require a water vessel. I got to the parking area and there was an empty truck here and a car running with its AC on I assume. When I walked by the driver's seat was all the way down and the sun shade in the front window. I am not sure if they were hot boxing or getting laid, but the sun screen should have prevented from them seeing what I was up to. I searched a few spots and figured out the theme. Then I saw the container. Not bad. I walked back over and the person(s) inside were moving around because I think they finally saw me. When I took off without incident and when I drove by a little while later, the car was still there.

I headed west and sure enough, there was the Fir. It has seen better days. I roamed around and took photos while the construction trucks were hauling out dirt nearby. A very interesting sight to see.

TFTC!

Zach gave me a ride to Hertz this morning and I left the rental place at 8 AM. I was trying to drive from Taft to Klamath Falls, but only made it as far as Weed at 10:40 PM. I found 22 caches, had 1 DNF, and signed 1 challenge log that I will complete by Sunday. My main goals were to knock off quite a few of the 360 Degrees of California Challenge and the KCCS: National Historic Landmarks in CA Challenge, but I kept getting further and further behind and had to skip a bunch of the NHLs in Sacramento.

This was Day 1 of my epic Northern States Geocaching Run. The plan is to make it to:

1st Night: Klamath Falls, OR (actually made it to Weed, CA)
2nd Night: Portland (Made it!)
3rd Night: Victoria, Canada
4th Night Seattle
5th Night: Just before Glacier National Park
6th Night Dickinson, North Dakota
7th Night: Minneapolis, MN

My main goals are to find a lot of webcam caches, large caches, Jasmer caches, and get 7 more states (layover in Colorado) to bring me up to 42.

At GZ!Here I am at GZ taking a photo back towards the bridge. Keep searching for this one. It's there.

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.
