|Well, my "Blair Witch" cache by Hemlock Lake wasn't stolen, but it was blasted with a shotgun! A find report on the other site by John & Sue (backspace_69) described finding the cache with a hole blasted in the bottom, the top open, and the contents scattered. They were kind enough to reassemble and relocate the cache to new coordinates nearby, so it's still alive, but a bit beat up. I named the cache based on the spooky nature of the area it's in; seems even more appropriate now. I'll freshen the cache up with a new box and some new contents, when I get up enough nerve to go into the area again! |
It only took eight months, but but I finally got to the "Blair Witch" cache site to replace the box and replenish the contents. I removed some of the items that were musty from moisture that had leaked into the box, and added several items, mostly toys and novelties, and some "Keokuk Geodes" (mineral specimens).
Since this was the first time I've been to the cache since "backspace_69" et al rescued and relocated it, I had to search it out, so I'm counting it (my own cache) as a find.
The cache is still living up to it's name. Half way to the cache at a fork in the trail, my canine caching buddy Penny sensed something she didn't like and refused to willingly go any further. We had to put the leash on her to keep her from heading back to the car, and she seemed pretty spooked for the next hundred yards or so. Wooooooo.....
Thanks to everyone that helped out with this cache by removing soggy paper and plastic-bagging stuff to protect it from moisture.
