      Well, I found this about 2 years ago and I seem to remember a small container like the one that dry Gatoraide comes in?????
      Wow, we would all make great witnesses! No one seems to remember it quite the same. Oh well, good luck everyone!
      BTW, if you plan on learning string figures at my event, I will start promptly at 10:30 so don't be late.....unless you are just going for the smiley!

      If you don't want a potential spoiler, delete and move on.

      Matt, et al...
      Went looking to see if I photographed the cache in 2005 ... no such luck. Obviously, from my log, we had a time with it.
      However, and this may be helpful to the seekers:

      The container is long and tubular, as I recall. Like you get the collection of plastic animals at Michaels. [I wasn't keeping as good notes then as now, and photographic memories get bit rot inside the ol' grey matter.]
      Soooooo, you are looking for something with a slimmer profile -- if 5.5 year old memory serves. Sheesh! Have I been caching that long?!?!

      Sometimes it helps to know what footprint you're looking for. An ammocan occupies a different space than a jelly bean jar than a tupperware box than a ....

      Good luck to the seekers!

      I have already asked the last finder (DrPflug) if he would help and I hope he doesn't mind me quoting him: "...about Dam Rocks,  no way that I'm looking for that damn thing again.  I'd probably never find it in a million years again anyway."

      There you have it.  ;-)  I agree that we all need to join forces, but I'm not sure if 8am will work for me due to my kiddos.  I feel bad, though, since I'm the one who stirred all this up again.

      I will definitely be there if I can, though!!!

      As for the cacher who replaced the cache without permission, it's also my view that this is wrong.  If I were the CO, I wouldn't mind if the cache were a "no brainer 1/1" and it was obvious that my simple hide was missing, but for a difficult find, I would definitely not want someone to replace it just because they couldn't find it.  Difficult finds are difficult for several reasons, not the least of which is because they were placed in a very strategic manner by the CO.  I would want to replace a missing/damaged/ misplaced difficult find myself.  I'm sure the CO would do that now if he could, but he can't... until September.  That's too long in my book, but instead of disabling it, he just waiting for "more DNFs", but has yet to say exactly "how many" more.  That's wrong in my book, but I'm past the irking feeling I had a week or two ago.  Since I doubt it's been muggled, I really just think it's been misplaced, thus turning a "3" into a "6".  ;-)

      Can't wait to sign my "DAM" NAME on this "DAM" CACHE!!!  hehe  Thanks again to all who answered my call on this one.  If I don't show up, please call me if it's found so I can share in the excitement over the phone!
