Located in Silver Lake State Park on the southwest end of Silver Lake, This cache is now located just south of the public boat launch that is a popular fishing spot ideal for the kids. There are a few picnic tables in the park and an opportunity for pictures but again the primary function of this park is the launch. I chose to relocate the “Verda Says Hi” cache outside the boat launch area that now charges a fee to go in. You may choose to visit the park as well. But for those who are just caching, this one is now free.

Many a cacher has had the opportunity say “Hi” to Verda and many of them may have an idea as to why this cache is now called “Verda’s Log”. But Road Kill is Grinning.
Beware the distractions this one is still enjoyable. The terrain is fairly easy but a longer walk. The cache is still a 50 cal ammo box with a logbook and goodies to exchange The goodies are great but the adventure of the hunt and the hide itself are the real treasures.

Great area for a hide. Took a long walk from the park. Was a little wet on the way in but found a dry way back out. The cache had some slug shots through it and was a bit wet. Dried it off the best I could and tried to hide it a bit better. Thanks for the hide. TNLN

Roadkill, This was a beautiful setting and a very nice walk. It was my third find of the day and I went right to it. I removed the mountain man drinking cup and the susie B. I replaced these items with a nice little deer antler and an old cobalt blue antique bottle. I love finding your caches, lets find some time to do a little chipping, OK? - Paleoman52

Well well, Mr. RoadKill. How many times was I at your cache today?

Once to find the cache itself, and the second to find the geocoin I lost while finding the cache! ---> That's me after driving to Silver Lake in a manic panic figuring I'll have to explain to a coin owner how absolutely dumb I am...but I digress.

We weren't sure if we found the proper parking area to proceed to the cache (in addition to coin losing we are also very talented at overlooking obvious parking/trailhead areas). So after a few trips we finally decided we had found the entrance, and off we went!

Had a fun time walking in the woods (it's beautiful back there!), and upon arrival was very pleased to find the caches namesake. We were glad to see that the cache is brand-spanking new and that we were fortunate enough to be the second group to mark-up the log-book.

We found an awesome Magellan key chain in the cache, and since my first GPS was a Magellan Sport Trak (since passed on via Losson Park) we decided to snag it. In its place we left a buck's 4pt. antler.

Again RK, you've put together quite the adventurous cache...haha. Thanks again for a great one, OH and yes, for being my #350 cache find!

Nice day for a stroll through the country side. Lynn and I started from West Lake Road and after having to skirt a swampy area found a very nice hide. The contents are a little damp because there is a hole in the top of the cache box (stuffed with some plastic). Signed log book. Left a dollar bill; took nothing. Re-covered the cache and added more cover. Thanks, Roadkill.

Remembered Verda says Hi and started looking for something similar. GPS was off today and we were looking in the wrong places for a while. We were about to give up and did our final circle of the area and there it was. Covered the whole in the container with the baggy.

Well, got buckled on this one...Was with KillerB, Bo & Blueeyes. I was last to find of the three of us...
I think I lead us in from the wrong side....We got quite,.... umm..., messy....Then again, they wanted me to keep leading, and when the going got tough, they struck out on a different direction than I suggested....And we STILL got wet and mucky anyway...

Nice distraction, too.
I not only have wet, muddy boots, but many 'squito bites, and even got stung by something.

None the less, a GREAT hide, again! This was my 80th find, and I'm sure I'll remember it well...
Thanx, RK!
