    FOUND A CACHE!

    Went out hunting today. hit a small park outside of town. Nothing great found, odds and ends. I decided to check around some trees out in an area that tough to navigate. While swing'n the detector around, I clipped a strong signal right next to the tree...right under a stack of bark...with something green..I GOT SOMETHIN!!!

    Removing the bark I saw an old ammo can...I looked around then back to the can. As I pulled it out my thoughts of old treasure went went out the window, oh well, it's hidden...money from a bank robbery? SOMEBODY hid it!

    I opened it and peeked inside... my heart sank... it was a GeoCache, which meant I don't get to keep it. We took it home and had a good time looking thru it and reading all the notes, we will respect it , add some trinkets and replace it later today.

    so close......

    Very cool. I have found a couple geo-caches, but have never seen a buried one.

    Re: FOUND A CACHE!

    A Geo Cache is a box that someone places with a few items in , they hide it then pass out clues for others to hunt for it. If you find a cache you may take something from inside AND you leave something and replace it for someone else to find...I just happened to find it with a metal detector instead of GPS It was left in 2001 and has MANY entrys in the log book.

    Nice find, LOL! I also found a Geo cach at a very old castle ruin here in Germany, I added my only decent find to it, a large rusty nail and signed the book. HH, Mike

    do leave a nail. pulltab, or such

    Nice find.

    Thank You!!

    We geocache a lot and nothing is as frustrating as going to all the trouble to search for one and find out it's been removed. It's very good of you to replace the cache. We really like the geocache hobby and spend a lot of time at it.

    Again, thanks for replacing - - - -

    Re: FOUND A CACHE!

    Yeah nice job on putting it back. I found one a while back. All the contents were spilled. I replaced them all and hid the the box under a fallen tree and then stacked limbs next to it in a quite obvious fashion. Can't be seen from the park, but, only a geo-cacher would know it is there somewhere. Couldn't sign the log because it was wet. It was first placed there in 1994!! Last entry was from this year in January I think. Well, at least someone else will have the oppurtunity to find it now.

    Funny thing is that I saw it on Friday morning before work and didn't pay much attention to it. The next day I took my kid to the same place to hunt because I had found some collar disks. This time we saw it and check it out. When we realized what it was we did the right thing.
