    This was the second time I had been to the cache location for the hunt. The first time I was pretty sure it was hidden in a hollow cypress tree but I needed a flashlight to look inside.

    Well yesterday I went back out to the spot with flashlight in hand and no cache at that location. I was using the geocaching app on my iphone and from the aerial image I study some more and I discovered I was at the wrong cypress tree. After refreshing my memory of previous logs about a clever hide I began the new search and stumbled across the location.

    Here are some pics of the hide.

    Do you see it, the camera put a little more light on the subject.

    Due to the size, I'm guessing just a log.

    carbonsteel answered it just a log.

    It is a cache for an outdoor adventure game called geocaching where you find things with a gps or smartphone with an caching app.

    Maybe you need to start hauling a metal detector around with you to find hides like that.

    The two I found last weekend were pretty easy. The rocks they were under didn't have lichen growing on them like all the other rocks in the area did.

    That's what I was thinking. If someone did that here where I live, people would complain and the reviewer would disable it.

    It's a great idea, just I'm pretty sure it's against the geocaching rules. You aren't even allowed to dig a hole to hide a cache in, and I'm sure there are rules against permanent attachment to trees.

    Wow I have a question.

    Has anyone else here found one of these by accident? I personally found one labeled Geo Coach, and the other my cousin found, was labeled "Travel bug"... he and I were together on both occasions. I found the geo coach one inside of a hollowed tree - while the travel bug was found in a rock crack area, within a jar, so we left a note, and a quarter in a jar for whoever found it next lol.

    This happened within one year, so its kinda funny we found them at all... it looks like they are kinda hard to find lol. My interest might have just been sparked by this...
