Be prepared to cross a stream near the cache site.









Before I get into the description of this cache, I want to relate a short story to you showing that we are not far removed from our fellow humans in "less privileged" nations.

The Maasai villagers of Enoosaen, Kenya in Africa, heard of the tragic events surrounding the attack of the Twin Towers on September 11. Upon hearing of the tragedy, they were very saddened by that event and decided to do something to help their fellow tribesman.

When a member of another tribe or the tribe itself is in need, the tribe most capable of providing help to the needy, will do so by giving of their most valuable resources. One of the Maasai's resources is the common cow, which is a highly prized resource providing much of their needs, such as food, drink, shelter, clothing etc.

So, what do you think the Maasai gave in good faith to the New York Tribe of America, cattle of course. So, the next time you feel the need to help your fellow tribesman, do so with the knowledge that one day you may receive the gift of help from a small country far, far away.

NOW, ONTO THE CACHE !


After you have parked your vehicle at the natural "round-about", walk down a very short trail to the Union River, follow it down-stream. If you are observant, you might discover "Mother Nature's bridge" to cross over to the other side. Once you have arrived at the cache site, look for obvious clues to it's whereabout.

Keep in mind that during the rainy season this river may run very high up on it's banks and (hip)waders may be required.

The Terrain & Difficulty ratings are for a "Worst Case Scenerio", i.e. for those who feel the need to bushwack, possible high river water and a necessary river crossing.

If you have more accurate coordinates, please feel free to include them within your log entries. If you give extra hints in your log, I may delete your "Found It" claim.

GOOD LUCK & HAPPY HUNTING !
