My last morning in the Bay (and, indeed, in the USA) before I fly home to the UK this afternoon, and I was keen to add an Earthcache to the list of my finds while I’d been over here. Parked nearby, found the fissure (coming from a part of the stories with virtually no seismic activity to speak of, this is pretty epic!), sent an email. TFTC!

Threw together a quick computer program to help decipher the description, only to realise that I actually needed to have paid attention to the steps I took in deciphering it, too! A quick do-over and I was on the way to the cache. The nearby vegetation put up a bit of a fight, but eventually let me have it. TFTC!

Recognised this style of recipe right away; I’ve been cooking things like this for years: maybe I’ve even got the same recipe book as you?

Anyway, it didn’t take me long to have a doughnut in one hand and the cache in the other. I was slowed down a little by the discovery that I accidentally left my GPSr on charge in my hotel room this morning, but luckily my phone did well enough to get me to the GZ.

Neat hiding place: you couldn’t manage a spot like that back in the UK, where I do most of my caching! TFTC!

Update: I later found my GPSr in the wrong pocket of my bag: it had been with me the entire time…
