This location was once home to Big Daddy's Cache. What could replace a vandalized and abandoned cache by that name except Big Mama's! Thanks go to ChiliHead and Chemist Kahuna, the spritual fathers of this cache: the first for his tradition of adopting abandoned caches, and the second for occasionally launching caches before they are actually in place!

I'm Placing (replacing) this cache to commemorate my 250th find, and it contains a 250 Finds Achievement Coin. If your 250th find is coming up soon, put this on your "To Find" list so you can lay claim to this coin for a while before passing it on.

This cache is on a pipeline maintenance trail just off the canal.

Last note: Because this location is so close to an interstate highway, a lot of garbage floats in and settles. Please practice CITO - it isn't hard - there are usually plastic grocery bags among the trash - just pick one up on your way through, and fill it as you work your way out!

Original description for N01F94 Big Daddy's Cache (now retired) was:

"The terrain is fairy flat,be careful poison ivy factor is unknown. (snip) This cache is a retired M-16 ammo box.The biggest one i could find,it is packed with trade items for evreyone young and not so young. (snip) Watch out for muggles this is a well traveled bike trail.there maybe some fourwheelers in the area.please place box back as you found it."

I saw this listed last week, so I rushed out the next morning with Barkley at first light. I had been here before to the original cache, but Barkley hadn't so he wanted to go.

It was still a bit dark when we got to the parking, but not dark enough that I needed a flashlight. We had a nice walk to the cache along the trail, passing by a tent that I assume a homeless person or a couple of kids had set up.

We got to GZ and expected a quick find, as the original ammo can was quite large. But nadda. How could I miss it? I thought maybe the hiding spot was in a different spot than the original spot, so we expanded the search area. After about 25 minutes of no luck I realized my luck got worse: I lost my GPS. Oh crap! So I spent the next 35 minutes not looking for the cache, but looking for the GPS. I finally found it hanging on a branch I leaned over on, and by now Barkley was really fed up and was threatening to eat me if we didn't get going.

So I stopped the search for the cache, and headed out. When I got home the listing on the other site was gone. I had seen retracted listings here, but not there before. Turns out the cache shouldn't have gone live yet. After posting my DNF I got a note from the cache owner indicating it wasn't ready yet. I explained these things happen, in fact Chemist Kahuna had done it a couple times, so I told him I got "Kahuna'd" (no disrespect to Mr Kahuna - it's all part of the fun.)

I had a heads up that this would go live again this weekend, so after picking Barkley up from the kennel he expressed his desire to erase the DNF we had earlier, so we made the drive back out here again. The tent was still there, and still no signs of people in it or around it. This time we made the find pretty easily, before heading back down the trail to do another cache I hadn't done before.

Thanks for the fun, and return trip!

Picked up most of the remains of the old cache. There is still a big stuffed animal there I couldn't grab.
