I found it! 30 Jan 2007    24hr Free Air - Vehicle emissions  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

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!

I found it! 12 May 2006    TIGER MOUNTAIN # 27  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

I was out hiking with the dogs tonight and figured that I would try for this NC. It was quite a challenge, especially with two miniature dachshunds. Thanks for the cache!

I found it! 11 Sept 2005    Fosskett Memorial  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

This was a nice stop on my drive up US 95 today. Great views here! Email verification of my find is on its way. Thanks for the cache!

This was a nice stop on my long drive home to Seattle from Southern Idaho. Verification email has been sent. Thanks!

I found it! 07 Aug 2005    Road Closed  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I was just browsing the Navicache site and saw that this cache was crosslisted from GC.com. I am reproducing my log from when I found this on 08/07/2005:

We stopped at this cache on the way home from Idaho today. It was brutally hot here at the time, so I was thankful for a quick find! I took the Stealth Fighter Travel Bug and left one of my pins. I also left a White Jeep, which don't seem to be very abundant in this portion of the state. Thanks for the hunt!

I found it! 18 Jun 2005    K.I.S.S. My Cache 4  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

We hit the tide right on this one and had good luck zeroing in on the hide quickly (even though I took the "moister" route to the cache!). I remember the last time I was in Bremerton passing by this park and saying I was surprised it didn't have a cache in it. I guess that has been corrected! Thanks for the hunt!

I found it! 18 Jun 2005    3939  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I like "cool" coordinates, even when they are not especially scenic! The cache was a quick find, but could use some TLC - the log is a damp wadded ball in the bottom of the container. Thanks for the hunt!

I found it! 20 Jan 2005    Dumb Luck Detour  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Cross-posting my log from GC.com:

What a great setup! Very nicely done! I visited in-between waypoints on the nearby "Kite Lady's Flight" cache. I made the detour (and what a route I chose - I should know better by now not to always take the direct route to a waypoint!) and that was fun too. I took a rubber chicken and left a Travel Bug. Thanks for a great hunt!

I found it! 26 Jun 2004    ORIGINAL STASH TRIBUTE PLAQUE  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Find #47 of 54 today, #47 of 111 for me on the Portland Cache Machine, and #67 of 138 on my trip to Portland
I was one of the contributors to the plaque and was glad to finally make it down here to see it in person. I had visited this spot before the plaque was placed and thought that the 5-gallon bucket-sized depression that I found here before was a little depressing. This tribute is more like it! I'm also glad that the issues that hit this cache over the weekend have been resolved and that this cache is active once more.

I found it interesting that there are now two logbooks in the cache. Initially we signed the one on top of the plaque, but then I remembered that early logs of the cache indicated that the logbook was a bit tricky to find. That led me to examine things again while others were searching for Un-Original. Aha! There was the "real" logbook (which must be the one that ponyryder recently added)! It was void of signatures and I was happy to be the first to sign it. I was also honored to be able to leave one of my Moun10Bike Geocoins as this Holy Mecca of Geocaching!

Thanks, Team360, for placing and maintaining this wonderful tribute!

I found it! 27 Mar 2004    Spirit Park Toyland  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Copying my log from the Geocaching.com:

Wow, I was glad that we were hunting for this one on a Saturday! I could see it being packed with muggles on a school day! Travis came up with the hide quickly after we figured out where the offset would put us. Thanks for the hunt!

I found it! 31 Dec 2002    The Bone - Pieces of the Puzzle - Final  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 2 )

AWESOME SERIES!! This was a phenomal set of caches - certainly among the best that I have ever done! Kudos to LucyandRickie!

I was actually sad when I found this final cache, as I knew that it meant that the series was over for me. I hope that you guys are already working on your next set of ideas!

I didn't have the best of reception when I arrived at the cache site, but it was good enough to get me to the general area and then I started the hunt. Before long, I had the bone in hand! I took a Team Teasel Travel Star and a Nintendo tennis ball keychain, and left a Travel Bug (Classic Pooh & Patamon #5) and a Moun10Bike Geocoin. I also found the envelope addressed to me. Thank you, guys, for the helpful reminder!

Thanks again, LucyandRickie, for an outstanding cache series! The bar has been raised!

I couldn 19 Dec 2002    Bellevue Stats Cache - Pieces of the Puzzle #3  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 1.5 )

After working for the big 'M' for several years not too far from this cache, you would think that I would have known about this park. Nope!

While I got to add another park to my list, I also had to add another cache to my evergrowing Not Found list! At least I had a fellow geocacher, Kodak's4, with me on this hunt. Since he is a master of statistics, I thought that we'd have no trouble at all with this one, and we didn't up until the final cache, which eluded us.

We independently arrived at the same answers to the statistics questions, so we were confident that we had the right coordinates. However, the spot to which they led us did not seem to fit what we could make of the hint or of the terrain rating. I'm going to have to check with the cache hider and see if we got the correct coordinates, and if so we may need an additional nudge in the right direction.

I found it! 13 Dec 2002    Kirkland Sculpture Walk - Pieces of the Puzzle#4  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

Awesome cache!! I missed out on all of the 'fun' that Kodak's4 and evergreenhiker! encountered earlier, but I tried to make up for it by taking the absolutely wrong route on virtually every leg of the journey! That was actually great, as while I have mountain biked all of the open trails in the park, I had only previously been on one of the hikers-only trails. I guess I've seen 'em all, now!

The waypoint that gave me the most trouble was #1. After that, I had little trouble on the others. I had just visited #4 and was off to #5 when I got a call on my cell phone. It was Kodak's4. He had already found the cache and was calling to see what was taking me so long! I was glad he called, though, because I was planning to hit #5 and then leave to return another time, as I didn't yet know that the cache was back up and running! Lucky me!

I was able to locate #5 quickly, and then it was off to the final cache. I had virtually no reception, so I whipped out the external antenna. Whew! That got me enough for a decent fix, and I was able to zero in on what looked like a good hiding place. Success!

I swapped Travel Bugs, replacing 'Beary' with Markwell's 'Going No Where - FAST!'

Thanks for an absolutely classic cache!

I found it! 07 Dec 2002    Bataan Park  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

We had seen some recent 'Not Found' logs from some of our fellow geocachers on this cache (posted on Geocaching.com), and were worried that we would meet the same fate. I guess that we are living right, as we found it relatively quickly. I don't think that we scared the neighbors, either!

I TNLNSL. Thanks to Fledermaus for adopting this cache and keeping it going!

I found it! 07 Dec 2002    Arvon Childrens Park  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

The proximity of this cache to the Novra Deja Vu led to some confusion among Seth!, Kodak's4 and myself. We'd edit the coordinates for the next stage of the multi, and would call up the closest cache to do so, which would then be the other cache, and then Kodak's4 and I misread one of the digits, which led to more confusion, and so on. It was really quite comical! Finally, we got it all straightened out!

I TNLNSL. Thanks for the cache in this unexpected little park!

I found it! 07 Dec 2002    Warren Ave. Bridge Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 4 )

Wow! A nifty bit of a challenge, this one! I almost brained myself tripping over a vine during one of our aborted approaches to the cache; it's a good thing that didn't happen during the descent!
Things were nice and slippery on our way down, and then our GPSs decided to show the cache as further up the hillside than where we eventually found it. This increased the difficulty level for us, as we made a treacherous sidehill traverse in order to head toward where our needles were pointing. A careful read of the hint got us on the right track, though, and soon we had the cache in hand!

I TNLNSL. Thanks for a fun challenge!

I found it! 07 Dec 2002    Tower of Power  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

This was cache 16/23 on Seth!'s, Kodak's4's and my Bremerton cache extravaganza today. I really like this park, although I regretted not getting to enjoy the view due to the fog.
This was an exciting find for us, as it marked Seth!'s 400th!! I took nothing and left a little red micro car.

Thanks for a fun hunt!

I found it! 04 Dec 2002    Beavers-Pieces of the Puzzle #1  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2 )

Today was the day for my weekly geocache outing with 2Dolphins. We arrived at the parking lot with the rain coming down fairly hard, and there was a bit of a nip in the air, but a brisk walk toward the cache site quickly warmed us up.

We arrived to find evergreenhiker! on the scene. This was nice, as although I had met EGH at WSGA meetings, I had never had a chance to meet him on the trail. I promptly lost signal and was trying to regain it when EGH let out a 'found it!' Nice, devious hide! That's a good one!

With that, we all headed toward the final cache location. I really enjoyed the walk past the beaver pond and dam, although it made me sad for the days when we used to be allowed to mountain bike past it (this used to be one of the most popular MTB sites on the Eastside before it was closed off and the trails 'improved').

At the final location, we spent a few minutes hunting, and then I finally noticed the container.

As a memento, I took a tassel keychain (that I learned 2Dolphins had just put in!) and a troll Travel Bug (ditto!). In their place I left two Travel Bugs: one of my Moun10Bike geocoins, and the 'Lost Boy' Travel Bug that I rescued from the approaching snow in the mountains near Coeur d'Alene. He wants to get to Boise, so I'm hoping that placing him in a new cache here will get him into the hands of someone heading to Boise for the holidays.

Thanks, lucyandrickie, for a very memorable 700th find!

I found it! 23 Nov 2002    Stand Tall  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

As I was on my way to the McCormick Creek Scramble cache with Hazard, this cache popped up on my receiver display. It threw me at first, as I thought it was the other cache initially. It took a moment for me to realize that there are two separate caches within about 80 feet here!

I took nothing and left nothing, and signed the logbook. Thanks for the hunt!

I found it! 23 Nov 2002    Seen Wetter Days  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I was fortunate to arrive at low tide! Only took a few moments of searching to find it -- my GPS actually read 0 feet away when I found it!

I found it! 23 Nov 2002    Mossy Trail  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

This was a tough find for Hazard and me. We had very limited reception today under the trees, so we did a lot of backtracking before finally zeroing in on the right location. Even then, we almost missed the cache. The leaves had covered just about everything, and if not for spotting a bit of white out of the corner of my eye...!

I took nothing, and left a Travel Bug that wants to visit State Parks.

Thanks for a fun hunt!

I found it! 11 Nov 2002    Act Your Age  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

Yep, we definitely made this one harder than it needed to be! Must have been Koska's presence in the area creating a brain cloud.

I think that both Jim's and my GPSrs were pointing us to the other side of the fence and into the adjacent play area (I've posted the coordinates I recorded, but they were recorded with little averaging and thus may not be any closer). That little increase in search area made for some extra challenge. When am I going to learn to search the logical areas first, and then start working out from ground zero?

Thanks for a really fun lunchtime diversion!

I found it! 03 Jun 2002    The Old Geezer  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

2Dolphins and I headed out on a lunchtime search for this cache. Our biggest problem was locating a good place to start. Finally, we spotted the old 'geezerish' stump and then located the nearby trail.

We had amazingly good GPS signal and it took us right to the cache site. We didn't know that at the time, though, and let our eyes get caught by a blue tarp visible a little ways away from the cache. After a quick tromp over to the tarp, we saw that distance to target was increasing, so we headed back to the previous spot and located the cache right away. My GPSr had me within 5 feet, so trust that receiver!

I took bebubo's 'Where's Bob?' dollar and exchanged it for a 'Where's George?' dollar. Thanks for the fun lunchtime excursion!

I found it! 30 Apr 2002    The Cowboys Return  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I got a call from a friend today. 'My GPS arrived!' he said. 'We should go out caching sometime!' 'How about now?' I asked. 'Cool!' We were off!

We chose this to be his first cache, and found it with little trouble. I took nothing and left a 'Where's George?' dollar bill. Sorry that it doesn't fit the theme; I suppose I should have drawn a Stetson on George. Great job on the container, by the way!

I couldn't help but feel nostalgic today. Both caches that we visited were in spots that had previously held caches, and that I had originally visited one year ago this month. Kind of odd, that.

I found it! 30 Mar 2002    Samowen Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

We had a beautiful day for geocaching as snowghost and I joined Donad_d and Wizonkiz on an epic 2-state, 300+ mile, 10 hour trip. We were on the hunt for niskibum's "The Odyssey," and this was our most significant side trip on that adventure.

This is a beautiful area, and I hope to spend more time on these trails the next time I'm in the area. I took a couple dollar bills and replaced them with 'Where's George?' dollars. I also left a Travel Bug, Wendell the Wolf.

Thanks, Ascension, for another great cache!

I found it! 04 Feb 2002    Kings Ransom  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I was actually surprised to be the first one to this cache! I didn't check the web site for new caches until late last night (Sunday), and was sure that someone would have already pounced on this!

This is a neat little park, and one that I didn't know existed. Too bad that all of the cars on I-405 take away from the peaceful setting.

I took the pack of geocaching magnets and decals (where have I seen those before? ) and left a geocoin (#84) and a 'Where's George?' dollar bill. Thanks for the fun!

I found it! 06 Jan 2002    Welcome to Whidbey Island  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

This was definitely our shortest walk of the day from our parking spot, but it was as beautiful as any we had come to expect from our day of caching on Whidbey Island. It looks like the little mouse that TeamKitsune saw living in the cache hiding spot is helping himself to portions of the plastic bags (the cache box itself looked fine, as did the postcards). After visiting this cache, we headed uphill to Goose Rock.

I found it! 31 Dec 2001    Bluebirds Fly....  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Just posting my prior log of this cache to this website:

Wow, this one took a bit of searching to find! I was also about 50-60 feet north from the posted coordinates when I found the moss cross (that was an 'Aha!' moment to be sure!) like some of the others have mentioned. This is a great cache, in another nice spot that I would have otherwise never known about if not for geocaching, and a very nice tribute to someone who sounds like a wonderful lady. I took a snowmobile toy (perfect for the series of snowmobile caches I'll be hiding later this winter!) and left a geocoin. I appear to be exposure #14 on the camera.

I found it! 24 Dec 2001    English Point  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Just posting my prior log of this cache to this website:

Wow, today was an absolutely gorgeous day out! With the sun shining, I set out with my father-in-law and 6-month old puppy to find this cache. We had a wonderful time. Snow covered the ground in a blanket of white, but it was not so deep that we couldn't follow the trail or make our way off of it to the cache site. It took a bit of searching before we located the container, but we succeeded! Ascension, you mentioned correcting your coordinates at one time, so I thought I'd record the spot during our visit to give you another data point: N 47 46.921', W 116 42.415' (averaged for about 30 seconds with a GPS V).

We took nothing and left a couple of travel bugs -- a geocoin and Iron Mike, another one of my motorcycle series travel bugs.

One last thing -- I sound like a broken record, but I continue to marvel at (and sincerely enjoy) the number of places that geocaching takes me that I would otherwise have known nothing about. Even my in-laws, who live about 5 miles away from this cache, had never heard of English Point Park. This is a gorgeous location, and one that I will definitely return to in thr future, likely with my mountain bike! Thanks, Ascension, for introducing me to this spot!

I found it! 18 Oct 2001    Take a Break  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Just posting my prior log of this cache to this website:

I was headed to Spokane today to meet up with my dad and brother for a fishing trip to Montana, so I decided to stop and seek out this cache. I found it in great shape, but scared a little rodent next the cache site pretty badly! He kinda startled me, too! I took a dollar bill which I will turn into a 'Where's George?' bill and add to another cache, and left a 'Where's George?' dollar bill and a Geocaching.com compass keychain.

I found it! 18 Oct 2001    Last Stop  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

Just posting my prior log of this cache to this website:

Most rest stop caches are pretty ho-hum (although we have some good exceptions in Washington State), but I liked this one. They sky was filled with wonderful colors today as I drive east from Seattle to Spokane in preparation for a fishing trip to Montana with my dad and brother. The view from the cache site really let me take it all in. I took nothing from the cache, and left a geocoin traveller (#015). My only question: who's Shannon?

I found it! 30 Sept 2001    Light House Point  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

Wow, wow, wow! I wanted to do a special cache for my 100th (not all logged here, obviously!), and this sure fit the bill! I had asked around as to a great cache, and EraSeek directed me to this one. All I can say is AWESOME! I did this one with Geocaching.com webmaster Jeremy. It was a beautiful sunny day as we set out -- the fog had just completed burning off -- and the views out over the Sound toward the Olympics were tremendous at Bowman Bay. I had read about the ladder up to the headlands and, as we approached the cache site, I started getting more and more nervous. I am deathly afraid of heights. I saw the distance ticking off on my GPS and thought (naively), 'Wow, we're almost there, maybe we found a back way that bypassed the ladder.' Yeah, right! We got to the point where you have to scramble down the cliff to the base of the ladder and then I saw the ladder in person. My actual expression was, I am not kidding, :O. I think that if Jeremy had not been there, I might not have had the courage to go up! But he was, so up I went. The missing first couple of rungs and the wobbly feel near the middle of the span didn't help matters, and neither did the slick aluminum ramp at the top (you probably DO NOT want to do this one when it's raining!), but I MADE IT! It was worth it, too -- what a view of Deception Pass from the point! Then we set about trying to find the cache. After several long minutes had ticked by, we began to get that worried feeling that the cache was missing. Oh no, skunked at such an awesome spot on my 100th! It can't be! Fortunately, Jeremy's keen eye spotted the cache just as we started to give up hope. Black trash bags make AWESOME camouflage! Our GPSRs were telling us that the cache was about 30 feet south of where we found it, but once we were sitting down logging it, our distance fluctuated from between 12-20 feet -- in any case, well within reason, just very well hidden! For the memory of the location and the fact that it was my 100th, I took the last of the CDs with the photos and screensaver, and left a Microsoft compass/caribiner and a pack of homemade geocaching-related magnets and decals (and a Where's George dollar). Last but not least, I left what I was waiting to hit my 100th to do -- leave the first of my Moun10Bike geocoins to be placed in circulation -- #002. After we rehid the cache, we headed back. The trip down the ladder was worse than the trip up -- taking that first step is the biggest challenge, though, and after that it was an easy trip down. Thanks for an awesome experience, Whidbey Walk!

I found it! 22 Aug 2001    Distance Caching 101  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I got stuck for a while on one section of the hunt, but with a little more web searching I was able to find the appropriate phrase and unlock the rest of the puzzle. As you can guess from that comment, I did all of my seraching for this cache online. It was a lot of fun! Thanks, Scout!

I found it! 12 Jul 2001    Above The Damn Lake  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Just posting my prior log of this cache to this website:

For years I've driven by Easton without ever stopping, and tonight for the first time I did. This was a fun cache to hunt, and I really enjoyed the views of the lake. I brought along a geocaching letter and placed it in the cache, but would recommend that the next visitor bring along a Ziploc in which to put it and the logbook -- I neglected to remember that. I took a Pez dispenser and left a Microsoft caribiner/compass.
