Didn't find it Kordite couldn't find Hoffman

Saturday, November 8, 2003New Jersey

I was on my way down to Uhlerville on the Deleware Canal for a Boy Scout bike ride and my route took me off of Rt. 78 right near this cache. I didn't have the cache description, I wasn't in any way familiar with the area and this area was just outside the map I had uploaded to my GPSr so I pulled off of Rt. 625 at the nearest point at could find at N40 37.677 W74.58.284. There was a sign there that said this area was a deer population control area, making it open to limitedhunting from September through February and saying that I sould wear blaze orange. I didn't have anything like that but I figgured a geek on a bicycle wouldn't look anything like a dear so long as I left my fur cuat and antler hat in the car.

It was a relatively short ride down the path and a turn onto the asphault. The coordinates led me to some grass just off the path but still 20 feet from the nearest tree. I searched in an expanding spiral at the bases of trees, behind logs and all the places I thought a cache could go. Like a spirograph drawing I would then loop back to the coordinates to see if my GPSr told me something different. I re-calibrated the electronic compas, compared it to my lensatic compas, let the unit sit for 10 minutes to get a good solid average and it still pointed to a spot where one could not possibly hide a cache. I figured that the coordinates were off and left.

On returning to civilization and reading the description, I never saw the Pepsi can but I did venture far back into the woods on both sides but was unable to find the cache. Without knowing that this is an offset cache, it would be impossible to find using just the coordinates.

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.
