I do not know if this is the right place to post this note, but We are having a hard time finding our 1st geocache.
I already sent this note to the person that hid theis cache, but maybe in this forum I can find even more help.
Hi, My wife and I just got into Geocaching. The GPS unit, we have is a Magellan Explorer is modeled 210. My grandson and I decided to go look for this cache on Saturday.
"Where the Green Ferns Grow" by peaksbagger.
(N 28° 07.395' W 082° 40.418')
We could not find this cache, but we did find the location of the hiking post, #14. The reading I was receiving on my GPS was N 28° 07.386' W 082° 40.379' That was very close to the given Coordinates in the clue so we were happy. We paced off the 40 yards at 290 deg. down the gulley turned left at about 230° for about 15 yards. This brought us to a badly decomposed stump just across the original trail. We dug around the leaves in the stump, and only found an old rusty marker light frame and lens cap. What I would like to know. Has anyone found this cache recently, or does it even exist at this location. Like I said earlier, we are very new to this and maybe were you going about it the wrong way to find the cache. I noticed the date of the past find was about 2003, or about four years ago. Am I too late or was this just a miss.
