The NUVI took me to a parking place that was near house. The GZ was not far but I felt like I might be going through yards to get to the woods. I had book marked the parking lot by the ball field on my first of several unsuccessful attempts to find 'it's a washout'. I drove to that spot and walked the trail. A much longer walk than that way. Fortunately, the footing was not too bad if I went slowly. I was using the NUVI because I have gotten behind on logging caches and needed to catch up on that before I cleared the Etrex data base and made room to update it's list of caches. That old GPSr has a very small memory. The battery on my NUVI does not last long, especially in cold weather. I was afraid it would stop working before I found the cache.
When I got in the correct area and was starting to find my way to where the GPSr said I was at GZ, I saw some foot prints in the snow. I followed them and they led me to the cache. I picked up the coin. Thanks for the hide. This fills a spot on the 366 day grid. Even though there were empty spots earlier in the month, I did not get out cache hunting on those days. I was glad to see a bunch on new caches in the area. This is my first find of 2013. It is also the first of the Guardin's caches I have looked for. I have lots more empty spots on the grid and will be looking to use more in this series to fill some of the spots. Thanks for the hide. (#939)
