Cache is a small, well camouflaged tupperware type container that contains a log book, camera, and a small assortment of stuff to swap. This cache was hidden in honor of the 2002 Rochester Area Cacher GT (Get Together)! It is designed to challenge even the most experienced cachers! Good luck!

Found this one in less then 5 minutes without knowing anything about it (other then it was hard) and without getting lucky. In fairness, I should mention that I have a similiar thing in one of my caches so I had some idea of what to expect. Though I have to admit Hinge did a far superior job in the execution of it then I did.

Check out the The Fellowship of the Ring cache. This is the original and ultimate LOTR quest style cache, plus get a chance to earn your very own wall hanging/quilt from the famous geoquilter DxChallenged!

Also while your in town check out the Gamehendge Rangers other caches. Plus keep an eye out for my soon to be released --what a long strange trip it's been-- cache, a difficult cache, loosely based on my travels across the country, featuring miles of hiking, tons of waypoints, puzzles, and other surprises.

The whole team was together for this cache, 4 pair of eyes are better than 1 right?? I lead the two little ones over the edge and the missus with the GPS is still standing up top getting bearings. The place looks like it has been torn apart! She makes her way down and WHOA! what have we got here? Hide over in less than 4 minutes. Traded a magnifying loop for the irish dice.
Thanks for the hide.

What a devious cache. I'd been right at that spot on two previous visits, but just hadn't "seen" it. What fun! Took nothing, left nothing. Enjoyed the after-work outing with Geo G.

Alriiiiight... we found it! I can't believe how devious some people can be in hiding caches, but I should have guessed based on some of the comments! Of course now I just blew my reasoning for upgrading the Magellan Pioneer to a Sportrak. Guess I'll just have to use the "need a new toy" line. Thanks for a great time Hinge.. I got a real kick out of this one. Traded a G-dollar, picked up the Travel Bug, and swapped a bunny for one of the Leprechauns.

Went for a second try, this time with Geo G. Well, we failed, but we'll be back again.

Well, I have to admit, the Leprechaun wins for now. Looked until we ran out of patience. Maybe if I can "phone a friend", we might try it again??

Spent about a half hour looking before deciding to defer this one to another time and look for something easier.

We didn't get skunked this time!!!! After a goodnights sleep, we went after this one this morning. I just knew we had the Luck of the Irish today; after all, this was our third attempt. Simply amazed and stunned when we found it. The kids and us were filled with joy! The leprechauns we brought to trade, now have a home. How cool is that?

Another amazing sight was the baby skunk crossing the road on our way out. We stopped and just watched the little critter wander off into the brush. Well worth the couple of extra trips. Thanks, Hinge!!!! CAN'T WAIT for the next one!!!!

Had time so went back today to try and locate cache. Was to bussy visiting during the navicache.com picnic. The cache was still tough but i had the one important clue that i needed to find it.
Great job Hinge and Puppy can`t believe all you were able to fit in the cache box.

After missing this one at the picnic, We thought it might have been a hoax. But after reading the forums and the post ,we knew it wasn't!!!!!!!! I had Anna, kyle , and casey looking through the woods like they were looking for a million dollars. But after searching the area again for about 45 minutes, no such luck..... We wern't at all dissapointed, the kids and I knew who hid it, so we knew it would be a challenge. Nonetheless; We all knew that we would be back.

We just know that we will mark this as a find eventually!!!!!!!!! Thanx Hinge for keeping us occupied.

This was a tough one. Boozer,his girlfriend Denise and myself searched for nearly an hour,also a new navicacher came by and joined in the hunt. The actual find goes to Boozer who made the amazing discovery. Great hide and what a challenge it was. We were on the verge of giving up several times. Thanks Hinge Thunder

Following suit to Quinn, we'll report this as unfound :( Will you keep this as a regular cache for us cachers that didn't find it? If so, I'll be bringing the rake, the leaf blower, perhaps a shovel and a metal detector!! Great hide Hinge! SueShe

I will be fair and marked this as an "Unfound" due to the fact I was not the actual one who did find it even though I was standing right there.
You did a great job placing this one. It will confuse cachers to come for quite some time.!

Yes I Found it but not by traditional methods. The first trip out with the GPS I hunted about an hour. and gave up. Few hours later I was over there again with Hinge Thunder as he started the warmer/colder routine. Tony (a Delta Team member) and I got our hands on it at the same time to share the first to find. Took nothing left nothing, But I did leave shaking my head. This one was too tough for Road Kill. Grin

Do I get credit for this one since I stood on it for almost an hour?!?! Great hide, Hinge. Had a wonderful time.

Well with all the Cachers looking for this one.. I have to admit the "Tough" hide... But as time for the picnics end closed in and some "Hints" we were able to find and log this one. Hinge you have a great imagination to be able to pull this one off. You stumped some experienced cachers...

It was a great picinc and this hide kept the people busy...

Happy caching all!!!

We went to look for this while at ourfirst cache event! Wow was it great. The variety of food was amazing. The diversity of people there shows how our sport crosses age barriers. The feeling of community was awesome. People talking, smiling and honestly helping each other....on a cache we couldn't find...But what we did find was the most amazing thing of all......Being a part of this group!

Thanks Hinge Thunder for setting this up!

See you on the trails!
