This was good HB, I had fun. The cache itself took longer than I thought, I was made nervous by the first ever posted DNF on it a few days prior over at geocaching.com :-). I left a WG$, and took a tape measure that I put to good use later in the day when I finally stopped caching, and did some of that work around the house Mrs. Urkel has been screaming about. Thanks for the cache and your continued efforts.

Chicky and I decided to go to Como Park and do some caching (but little did we know Losson Park would stand happily in our way...hehe).

I had solved this cache a few weeks ago when I was home sick. I figured since I couldn't be out caching, I might as well prepare for a future caching adventure! Haha, needless to say that preparation paid off today.

Great cache HB! Chicky and I definitely had a quality laugh over the "cache securement precautions" you have taken...This started off what turned out to be a predominantly HuckleBuckle-cache filled day.

Thanks again for a fun cache, see you on my tuff sometime!

Stopped by to find this one on the way home from CC's WTL#4. This was my second third to find tonight, sort of. The Canada Geese didn't seem to mind my stumbling around in the dark.
Thanks for the fun.

After getting home after a double shift we spotted HuckleBuckle's newest on this site. It wasn't long before we were searching the internet for the questions to the Jeapordy answers thinking we would make an early moring attempt on this one. After learning the caches approxiamate location we decided just to head out tonight rather than wait til morning as the cache was only a couple of miles away. After ariving at our calculated zero in the middle of a cut corn field we began doubting Huckle's coords and simply began searching randomly at likely nearby areas. This method proved to be ineffective and we gave up after about 45 minutes when the rain started. We were already composing our DNF log on the walk back to the truck questioning the coords. Prior to leaving the area we recalculated the questions to Alex Huckle's answers and the SIMPLE math required to learn the coords. It was then discovered that a 2 digit error was made in a simple subtraction problem (heck we weren't even required to carry the one!) and we came up with a new set of coords taking us in a different direction. Things were looking up and we recovered the cache in minutes on the second attempt a scant 20 feet from our zero this time around. Given the cover in the area 20 feet is going to be as good as it gets.

So in the end we take back all the things we said about Huckle in the privacy of the corn stubble last night after the first futile search and now wish to praise him for his skillful placement of this cache. We thought the Jeapordy theme was cool and appreciate his efforts to keep us entertained. We traded a button for our pen as the cache was without one and then headed for home.
