http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC13HT3

I was wondering if somebody could help me out with this cache. I have all the numbers needed except "What number is labeled on the trestle?"
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/wpt.aspx?WID=892f1e36-ac50-4691-834f-ed40ed843e6c&RefID=20a4f300-6145-41de-8eda-614d10bff322&RefDS=1

Ive been to the spot 3 times and I can't find a 3 digit number. I have already emailed the cache owner awhile back with no response.

Could somebody please verify that the numbers can still be found? Or does anybody know the number?

thankx for your time and help.
Brian

PM sent to Muggle B. I've never been able to find the trestle number either.

I also believe the final may be gone because contrary to what Merc Inc. said about no future plans for the area, they are now doing some major construction directly at GZ.

I'm of no help for you as I don't recall the specifics but I do remember finding all of the pieces for this puzzle.

Dropped by on way home and the location is undisturbed- not guaranteeing cache is there but location is safe.

Trestles have small white signs with black letters with their number on them. The trestle/Friendship trail over Lake Butte de Morte had one I noticed today (north side, heading west on "trestle").

Riverwalk's was mostly obscured by plants on east side as I remember.

Glad to know that letters can now be numbers...sometimes, I'm amazed I'm let go, to walk about all by myself Rolling Eyes

I found the cache today! It still there,but it almost washed away, I found it at the shore of the lake covered in duck weed, and totally drenched, but it was at the posted GZ luckly, I dried it out and hid it better, and put some rocks in front of it to keep it from drifting again

thankx for all your help, this was a neat cache, and I didn't want to miss it
