The Truth Is Out There

This Cache was originally created and hidden on 3/3/2001 Making it one of the oldest caches in the area.
The originators of the cache, Mark & Gweebaroo abandoned the cache long ago which was then adopted by The_Mariner who altered the cache to a multi stage adventure.
The_Mariner subsequently archived the cache on 8/12/2002
It was last visited after archival on 10/31/2002

While looking over some old cachers and their caches I realized that this one was most likely still in place so I set out to find it.  Even though it had been changed to a multi cache and the first stage was missing I managed to locate the original container still chained to a tree.  After a bit of cleaning I restocked the container and listed it here on
Come find the oldest cache on

Wanted to get out for a little walking, and archived old caches are fun, so here we came. There were a bunch of muggles out on this beautiful day, but none seemed interested in our side trip off the trail. Thanks, TermiteHunter, for setting this up!

I ventured out to find this "old" cache today for the GCGC Laundry List and I wasn't disappointed.  The container is in great shape and it was a nice walk to the cache.  Thanks for keeping it active.

My first opencache thank you keeping this one going.  I left a toy but would have brought so much more if I had paid attention to how big the ammo box was. I came out as part of the geocaching laundry list and didn't think I was going to make any this week because I've been so sick. But I'm glad I made this one, thanks again!

I found the OLDEST CACHE on and I am happy.  This was everything a cache should be and more.  I did make it way harder by parking at the bank near the main road.  When I made my way to GZ, I realized I could have just parked on the side of the road.


Thank you for this adventure and keeping this cache alive.
