Utterly Ridiculous

I found a cache yesterday inside one of these...

Example of a pinecone microcache currently being sold on Ebay.



hidden inside one of these.

This is actually a nicer one, the one I was in has a lot of deciduous trees so there are leaves all over the ground too.

Are all microcaches like that? That's crazy.

No, usually they are just film containers or hide a key containers but I guess there is a new breed out that are supposed to be super-disquised. There are bolts, pinecones, fake rocks, acorns, golfballs, etc.

Personally I think it is a bit overboard. It is supposed to be fun, not totally frustrating.

Wow I didn't think that people were actually using those. How the hell did you find it???

I actually assumed that it would be tied off so that it wouldn't end up disappearing but it wasn't. It was just sitting there completely untethered.

I found it by zeroing in on the coordinates and then turning over all the pinecones I could see. Fortunately the coordinates were pretty good and I already had an idea that it was going to be in a pinecone from the logs, things like "tricky", or "I have seen this before", kind of told me that it was unusual.

That would drive me bonkers. You obviously have WAY more patience than me!!!
