Comments:








This cache is dedicated to Fledermaus and Real Deal, who kicked me out of the caching rut I was in.


My first 67 finds were mostly on my own with occasional help from hubby, Dad, Mom, son or daughter. I would have kept on happily caching in isolation, but no, Fledermaus wouldn't have that. He was determined to find out who the mystery cacher was who kept hitting up all of his caches, especially Toandos Lockbox. He wasn't even fazed when I told him I'd have to do an FBI background check and get a list of all his speeding tickets. I finally caved in and agreed to go caching with him and his buddy, Real Deal. IT WAS A BLAST! We hit up 12 caches (10 finds) in a 12 hour, 150 mile (plus ferry ride caching spree. Here's to future joint endeavors.


Cache is within a few feet of trail so no hill-climbing or significant bushwhacking are required.


This is a 3.6 mile round trip easy hike or a nice ride on a mountain bike. Park at N 47° 33.290' x W 122° 49.602'. Walk up the blocked gravel road to N 47° 33.581' x W 122° 47.657' and turn right. If the creek is high, you may need to use rocks or a tree to cross.


There are a couple of alternate routes back. If you are standing with your back to the Bat House:


Left trail: same distance, but goes up on the hillside a ways


Right trail: about a half mile longer along some beaver ponds. Go to the gravel road and turn left, go to the next intersection and turn left. It'll take you right back to your car.




I am proud to have had this cache dedicated to my best friend(Real Deal) and myself(Fledermaus=Bat). However, I am saddened by the fact that Belleterre has decided to reduce or eliminate her activities in geocaching.


She allowed me to adopt this cache in order to keep it in existance for other geocachers to enjoy. It may be quite a challenge to many, since I've actually hunted for it it on foot. If you bring a bicycle, it will be put it to good use. Don't forget to bring a beverage or two and some munchies.


I am furthor saddened by the fact that "Real Deal", aka Jerald Deal, suffered a fatal heart attack on October 29th, 2004 at the young age of 41 years.


If you would like to hunt for the one cache that was very special to him, please take the time to look for "Mission: Afterburner" (GCH3GR), located within the N.A.D. Soroptimist Park on the Westside of Bremerton, WA.


He will now be searching for new treasures of which we geocachers can only dream. His Companion for several years and two children will be well cared for by family, friends and many others too numerous to count.



ATTENTION:  NSS (National Speleological Society) and the NCA (Northwest Caving Association) and those supporting the Federal Cave Protection Act of 1988.
In the interest of clarification, this cache has been placed at and outside of the location of an old tin mine, which is NOT a cave. Therefore, your rules do not apply!
