NOTE: cache hide spot was trashed. Changed cash to virtual.
It is still good for getting air at any time you want.

Micro Cache with a log, pencil and a few coins in it. Not much room for more, at this point.

The cache container is hidden, but it also has a 3 digit combo.

For now, the combo is set to the time the guy, that does those 'state approved emissions test car fixing' work in the dirt parking area, gets off work (read the sign on the fence). Maybe even park around this area.

(planning on working on another combo hint and place)
Hope this lasts. IT might be too obvious to people who actually frequent the area. The restrooms are only available during business hours of the place.

this cache is temporarily suspended.

some jerk drove over the cache hiding area. I will see about getting it back in service...

Was ok just a few days ago.

Not much to see, get some air or get your emissions checked.

I've had this one in my sights for quite a while but finally made a point to stop by today. I found the cache quickly and actually had a tougher time finding the sign containing the combination information! That's because it was partially hidden from view by a couple of parked vehicles. I did no trading but signed the log. Thanks for the hunt!

What a fine way to turn a drudgery chore (getting an emmissions test to renew the tags on my cachmobile) into a truly fun adventure. Found the nicely hidden cache swiftly, then strolled nearby to glean the elusive combo to open the prize. Thanks for the fun!

Knew where this one was right when I drove up. Took foreign coin, left Mercury Dime. My first navicache find. TFTH.

I checked on it last night a bit before 1am. IT was still there. And it is not inside the air machine. The air machine is for air in your tires or raft or innertube if you need.

My club went by last night and could not find the cache. It was dark but we looked all over and tried everything to open the air machine. Maybe the cache is gone?

ok I will do that after work tonight. I ride past the area on my way home. Thanks for looking, I wished you had found it.
I will leave a note detailing what I found.

---It is still there, as of 3:30pm or so.
I took some daylight pics and will post once I get back home. They might be spoilers, but sure might help.

I was by today looking around. They were not real busy next door and paid me no attention. The owner may want to check it out. I looked all over and couldn't find the cache. The only locking device near the air pump was a key lock on the wood 4x4 post.

I marked this cache as found, Dec.24,2004. I thought about that very spot before, but based on your posted info.... I can't say anymore except I could have got this on my 1st visit. I forgot to add that I guess I am FTF, or do we worry about such matters when hunting caches posted on this site. TFTH
