When looking over the cache page this morning, I noticed a couple things that made we suspect where the final might be located, so decided to make it a little more challenging and try my luck to see if I could find it without going through the first stage. I drove out to the area over lunch hour to look around and ... hmmm ... no cache yet, but I found what I expected to find. I went in further along the path until things got a little trickier ... a fork. Again, luck was on my side as I guessed the right path. I continued on and just about passed it up. For some reason I decided to turn around at just the right spot ... and there it was. Found the cache ... but no candy ..... (BOOOO!) .... but at least the log was clean. FTF!! I'm guessing all the candy hearts were in the first container ... that'll teach me for taking the short cut. It made for a fun adventure, though, and an enjoyable walk this afternoon. TFTC!
