I'll do my best since the coordinates of all of ringbone's caches have been intentionally off (he had hidden pretty valuable prizes, guess I can't disagree with him there).

The given coordinates put you close to the rivers edge, the cache is actually closer to the top of the limestone hill/bluff. and I believe it was slightly to the left if you looked up the hill from the posted coordinates. Since there's a lot of area to cover, search for your standard deadfall geobeacon, the cache is at the base of it.

I have a couple photos that I took the day I found it, I'm not sure if they'll help or not, but I can provide them if anyone wants.

S4xton...if you want to look for this tomorrow sometime (12-14) let me know. I'm off work and have wanted to check this one out for a long time.


Sorry for the short notice:

Change of plans. I have the day off today now as well. Reply to this thread with what time you want to do it (if you are still interested)... Before 4:30p if possible. (anyone welcome, actually)

If I don't hear back around 2-3p or so, I may get it today myself. I'd prefer to have someone with me though.

Cheers,
-Aaron

I think you should post a "Should Be Archived" on them and then place a new hide.

I agree. Place new caches.

Where is mr. ringbone? He hides his caches in March:

Or do we have to wait until 2006? Do pirates only return every 2 years ?

I'm ready for another ringbone hunt! If another one ever shows up, I'm prepared to call in a personal day at work.

I'm also prepared to take a personal day when a cache is placed and approved that doesn't meet the guidelines, that the owner has no intention of maintaining and lets deteriorate into a pile of moldy crap, and that causes a 500 sq. ft. area to be destroyed by a mob of overzealous cachers looking for something that has intentionally fuzzied coords. Yup, sure am.

Oh sorry, April 1st is a couple days away yet.
