I need help on this one. I've made 4 attempts and I have 4 DNF's.
With a terrain difficulty of 1 it should indicate its handicap accessible so today I focused my efforts on handicap accessible hiding locations.
I'm at my wits end with this cache.

Well, after I dnf'd it, I had a conversation with previous finders as well as the owner and they both said it is going to be a bugger to find. I'm not sure about the wheel chair guideline as I've never cached in a wheel chair.

Try contacting the owner, they were pretty quick to respond .

This cache IS findable. It just usually takes more than one try. If you read all the logs, you're not alone in your frustration. Sometimes the container is "out of position" to be easy, or should I say "less hard", to find. Another problem is the high visibility you experience in your search for the cache, both from the shore and the road. Hard to be stealthy and look for such a hard bugger. The CO checks on it a lot in response to DNFs. Sometimes it has traveled and sometimes it needs maintenance.

But I see you've found another area cache to drive you nuts, just a bit farther from your house this time. wink There's always another white whale waiting in the wings!

Yeah that one is a tough one... felt and heard it before we could see it.

This one really does hold up it's D5 rating, it is very elusive. Persistance will succeed though, don't give up. It does feel good when the thorn is removed by the smiley.

There isn't a square inch of this place I haven't looked.
I've gotten on my knees and crawled around upside down looking for this thing.
I've searched up high and down low, even under the bridge to point of looking under rocks. Even examining rocks thinking one could be a fake rock?!

I've looked in individual cracks in the road and the barrier

I've searched the OTHER SIDE of the bridge!

Then I got smart about it and considered the T1 rating and focused on handicap accessible.

Ok now I am thinking we need to make a trip up to the Rapids area. Our first 5/1 took us two trips and an hour of searching each time. If it were meant to be easy it would be a 1/1
