This is a fun locationless that drove me nuts. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for yellow jeeps for months, and whenever I'd see one, I was without a GPS or a camera. I got really excited to find one in a car lot in Grand Rapids over the Memorial Weekend, but when I went to log the cache, I saw that car lot photos didn't count. Back to square one. The other day, I was rollerblading home from work through Dinkytown, and I saw an older, faded yellow jeep. But I didn't have a camera with. So the next few days, I took extended detours through Dinkytown on my way to and from work, hoping to see the faded yellow jeep again. No luck. Well, guess what was waiting for me when I pulled up to my usual parking space in Dinkytown today? A different, newer, yellow jeep! It was like the caching gods smiled on me. It was like a present! Finally, I took the coords and photos needed to log this cache.

Earlier this week, KFL posted that he'd finally gotten to log this cache after a year of not having his camera with him whenever he did see a yellow jeep. I replied with the following...

[quote=DudleyGrunt,Mar. 16 2010,9:03 pm]Thanks for the reminder. I'd seen this before and just saw one the other day, but didn't get a pic. My challenge - see if I can log this by the weekend.[/quote]

I'm glad to say that I found one while looking for a cache in the Brewer’s Hill neighborhood, home of the National Bohemian Brewery (Natty Boh) through 1978.

Thanks, KFL, for prompting me to take on this challenge.

Found at corner of Odonnell St & S Conkling St (N 39° 16.829 W 076° 34.017). Want to see something really cool? When logging this, I'd left my GPS out in the car, so figured I'd check Google Maps for the coords. Check out what I saw in the street view....

http://tinyurl.com/N001CE

Guess the owner lives there OR really likes the frequent the Natty Boh Lounge across the street.

After I had seen this cache I suddenly saw yellow jeeps everywhere but only when I didn't have my camera with me. Or I had my camera with me, but no yellow jeep was to be seen. Today finally both happened at the same time (no, not forgetting the camera and missing yellow jeeps). And here is 'my' yellow jeep, along with the coordinates: (30.41053 -91.18384). Thanks for the fun cache.

We've passed a couple Jeeps since we saw this listing, but today finally on the way taking MrDotOne to work, we were in stop-n-go traffic right next to this Jeep. Acting quickly, MrDotOne took out his cell phone and snapped this pic as we held up traffic behind us so we wouldn't lose the shot .. lol! This was on Interstate 90 in Cleveland, and coords where the pic was taken are 41 28.185 - 081 44.808

Loved this cache, so much fun to do non-traditional ones!! tftc :)

Went to my first caching event today and what did I find, but a yellow jeep!! Interesting that I had discovered the navicahce site and this cache just before I left. I don't know if this will count, and I won't be offended if it doesn't, but you can't deny the coincidence.

This fun scavengercache has my 9 year old pointing out every jeep we see. We looked for ages around our MA home to find a yellow one - it took a trip to Lake George, NY for us to find not one, but 2 in our hotel parking lot. My daughter was estatic (N043 25.167 W073 42.837). As soon as we got back, there was a yellow jeep in her summer camp parking lot!!

Thought this was a good cache to ease myself into the sport with. And of course once I decided to do this didn't see a jeep for a week or two straight. Pulled into work one day and a yellow jeep zipped past me in the parking lot. So of course I had to get in the car and get to where it had parked. Woohoo Jeep #001. JL

Throughout my caching I have taken numerous photographs of Yellow Jeeps, but have never claimed one. Well, it is time to finally log this historic scavenger hunt.

Thank you for establishing another fine game. I appreciate it.

4:05 PM - My first post to this site, although I have been geocaching since last August on the other one.

I found this yellow Wrangler in the parking lot of Costco in Mountain View, CA at N 37° 25.184 W 122° 05.651. After convincing David, the owner, that I was not an undercover narc, he let me take the picture. We had a long iteresting conversation about GPSrs, geocaching, and what to get nieces and nephews for Christmas. Cache is King! Er, make that Cash!

After cautiously hunting these illusive yellow Jeeps, I was beginning to think they were a figment of someone's imagination. When lo and behold, as we pulled in to a BBQ joint to get dinner to take home, DogMa spots one of these cagey beasts pulling into a watering hole next door.

This cagey critter was wise, for it tried to hide it self amongst the invulnerable motorcycle gang. But it was safe for the moment for we had neither camera nor GPS with us.

On this same evening we decided to take in a Drive-In Movie (and score another cache in the process) Scooby Doo was opening and the line of cars was quite long. DogMa again spotted another Jeep with a flowing black main across its top. But this time, camera and GPS were already in hand.

As we entered the theater we carefully prowled about, seeking this yellow Jeep, trying not to be spotted. As we headed for a place to park we drove right by it, quickly snapped a picture, and continued on, hoping that we did not disturb it from its chosen resting place.

But back in our spot, we examined the evidence and realized the photo of the Jeep was not going to work due to the heavy darkness. So we cautiously approached it for a second time, this time on foot.

Carefully rounding a heard of pintos and mustangs, we approached this yellow beast head on, only to find it had consumed two people, a man and a woman! We motioned for them to roll down the window (windows rolled up in the summer time??) as we explained our quest. We did not need to offer any assistance however as we noticed a permeating odor of noxious weed, obviously the salad for this beasts 2 person course.

We quickly got our pictures and left, trying not to disturb the beast as it lay, carefully predicting its next move.

Much to our disgust, the yellow Jeep disease has spread to El Dorado Hills, California. We actually spotted this one while geocaching! We had to be stealthy to get the photo since the owner appeared to be working in his front yard. We didn't want the yellow Jeep to contaminate our blue one, so we snapped the shot, got the coords (N38 40.782 W 121 00.736) and sped off to alert everyone of our siting.
