Description   EN   

On March 24, 2007 I attempted my first benchmark find. I did not have a GPSr yet and I only used the description given in the details for benchmark JV3774. I wanted to make sure that I would like the hunt before purchasing a GPSr.

The benchmark seems to have gotten buried further by sediment. I uncovered it again. It was under about 4 inches of sediment approximately 3 feet from the telephone pole.

To date I have: 20 benchmark finds, 31 Navicache finds, 58 OCUS finds, 86 Terracaching finds, and 3,693 Groundspeak finds. I guess I like the hunt. I hope you do as well.

I have also hidden a groundspeak cache very nearby, but this listing is completely separate. I also have a Terracache (virtual) at the VFW memorial across the street (you can see it from here). Don't forget about the benchmark either.

You can park on the side of the road on Griffith Lane just a few hundred feet NW of the cache.

I'm retiring and leaving the area soon. I had to remove my physical caches.

Cache was archived.

I was on a cache maintenance run and went by here. I found the BIT in good shape, but now at a lower position due to damage on the plastic. All is well.

Thanks for the easy BIT cache. I will have to ask what the hint means.

I found 18 caches today. 17 of them are mine. I was out on a maintenance run today checking on some of my caches. 11 on the Groundspeak site, 4 on the OCNA site, 2 on the Terracaching site and 1 on the now defunct Garmin Opencaching site (which I removed and will reuse).

This cache is there and in great shape. Come seek it.

Very clever putting this next to GC326YZ.  I stumbled across this and had to research what it was.  Now I know what a BITcache is and that there is more than one geocaching website.  I feel like my world just got a little bigger.  TFTC!
