Geocaching - Sniff / Safe Deposit

Difficulty:   Terrain:

03sep2009: This cache has been archived.

The previous version of Sniff / Safe Deposit was a three-stage cache. Unfortunately the second stage was destroyed by waves in winter 2006, so I editted that part out of the cache.

This is a two-stage cache. Go to the above coordinates and look for the old-style logo. There you will find the missing coordinates of the actual cache. All you'll see are two three-digit numbers. The degrees and minutes parts are the same as for the first stage; just change the fraction parts of the coordinates to the numbers you find, and then look for the new location.

The cache is about 0.25 miles from the first site as the crow flies, but you'll probably want to backtrack. It's a 7.62mm ammo box, near but not in the obvious landmark.

If you're driving, there is free parking about a half mile east. If you're mountain biking you can get closer, but at some point you'll want to lock the bike and proceed on foot. No bushwacking is necessary - there are good paths which will take you to within 50 feet of all three sites. The last bits are on rough ground, so wear sturdy shoes. There is no poison oak in this area. Off-leash dogs are allowed.

Initial contents of the cache:

Suggestion: as you'll find out when you get there, this park has become a sort of informal outdoor folk-art gallery. As an optional alternative to the usual take-a-toy / leave-a-toy thing, you could bring something you made and install it somewhere nearby. Or bring some paints and decorate a rock. Or build a cairn of rocks holding up a stick. Or think of something on your own!
