The last half of this one is pretty much off the trails but is mostly an easy stroll through open woods with no need for serious bushwhacking or wet feet (that is, if you take the the right route in; if you're wading, you went the wrong way ;-).

The cache is named because of its proximity to a large, very shaggy shagbark hickory tree.

The cache box is a .30 cal ammo can, painted black and stenciled "GEOCACHE" in white. It's well concealed but should not be hard to find. Please put it back just the way you found it, or if you find it in the open, please re-conceal it in the obvious place (see clue). I suggest looking for possible hazards before reaching to retrieve the cache, especially in hibernation season.

The initial cache contents include (besides the logbook) an electronic stopwatch, a turned wood pen and pencil set, a brass desktop folding magnifier, a pretty good compass, and an audio tape. Please swap for similar value to maintain the quality of the cache for others. also, please try to keep the contents dry, and reseal the plastic bags if opened.

As usual, I'm posting to Navicache a day or two before posting to the "other" site to give the local faithful the best shot at FTF. Have fun!

Another Barrington and Mrs. B cache in Black Creek Park…ahhh. I receive a tip from Chile that there’s a brand new Navicache…ahhh. The weather is more like Spring than Fall…ahhh. I should be somewhere else but instead I’m hiking in the woods with a bed of dry leaves beneath my feet (I didn’t need to write the ahhh, you thought it on your own)

It was a picture perfect afternoon for a walk in a park I have only visited to find geocaches. It’s a great place, I love crossing what used to be fields now outlined by the mature trees and long rows of rock piles. I took a trail most of the way there but decided for the walk back I would stick to the higher contour through the open woods all the way back to the car. It was very nice, I saw a couple of butterflies, a few different birds and one, just one tree with brightly colored ‘fall’ leaves.

I really do appreciate the caches you have placed over the past several years. They certainly provide some quality and give cachers a chance to look for an old school cache.

I didn’t make any trades but as usual it’s a good mixture of stuff in there.

Ah darn. Had I seen this early in the morning I might have made the drive out. Not many people watching navicache.com these days!
