Urban caches can be tricky.

One fine summer morning a couple of years ago, I was buzzed from a workout at 24-Hour Fitness. I decided to work off some of the adrenaline by geocaching. I pulled out my trusty GPS unit and – low and behold – there was a cache located less than 240 feet from where I was standing in the parking lot! I was on my way.

At first I couldn’t believe what I found. Sweetieheart was still searching the machinery, looking for a typical magnetic cache. I was looking at the hints when I spotted the cache.

[n this video, Sweetieheart shows the location of the cache log. It must have been placed by a teller or someone high up in the bank. Surely, security concerns would normally prevent locating caches on ATMs. In any case, this was a tricky urban cache unless close attention was paid to the hints.

Note: I waited until this cache became inactive before posting the video or to this blog.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
