Dan Q found GC7H7C3 WarNinjas Kind of a Trailhead Cache

Finding the cache – easy! Getting the log out, though? That was harder. Eventually I resorted to picking up the entire hiding place and shaking it, which worked.

Shame about the litter here. Wish I’d brought CITO gear.

Right, time for me to go back down the trail, find the car, and get ready to fly back to the UK! TFTC!

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…
