Collaborative Work

Eventually it would happen. The Muggle Family and I getting together and putting plans into motion to create a puzzle cache.

Yes, we are.

And that's all I'll say for now. Prepare yourselves.

New Caches

The month of April has been spent putting into reality an idea that I've had for awhile. Wanting to do a Mario themed cache, I set out to gather the materials I would need to make this cache. After several weeks of planning, construction, and finally placement, Super Mario went live this week.

I also put out 2 more letterboxes. With M&L+3 archiving the caches he had at Expo Park, this opened the park up for opportunity. So with carving tool in hand, I took 2 erasers and made stamps for a letterbox themed off of the Churaumi aquarium and another themed off of the tropical dream center. So far these letterboxes have not been FTF'd. Probably due in part to their distance from most cachers. Hopefully someone will get up there this weekend to log their finds on these letterboxes.

And as if that wasn't enough, I also hid one more. Erno's Magic was hidden just a few days ago and hasn't been FTF'd yet. It's a puzzle cache, but you won't find out what the puzzle is until you arrive at the posted coordinates. This is an idea I found online, and seeing that one didn't exist on Okinawa, I went ahead and put this one out.

So with 4 more caches hidden this month, does that mean a break? Perhaps, but I have plenty more ideas waiting to be hidden. I just have to find the right places.

Dawgdoc's Last Okinawa Cache

Dawgdoc1 managed to put one more out there before getting on the plane to head back to the States. I was amazed that he was able to actually get this one together before he left.

He had told me roughly of this idea awhile back throwing a couple of ideas at me to see what I thought. Loving the idea of a Mission Impossible themed cache, I told him that I wouldn't touch it as it could only be properly executed in true Dawgdoc fashion.

I was amazed. This cache is probably one of his most creative that I have seen to-date. I loved the work that went into it.

You'll appreciate it if you go after this one. Which I recommend that everyone who really enjoys caching on Okinawa do before they leave the island.

I was happy to log an FTF for this one. We'll miss you Doc! Hopefully we'll see you back here in the future!
