The Rock

I placed a new geocache in Price more than two days ago, and I’m surprised nobody has tried finding it yet. I put a lot of time, effort, and money into making the cache container, but after all that I was hesitant to place the thing just anywhere. I needed to find the perfect spot, somewhere were it wasn’t likely to be stolen, but somewhere where it could blend in and not be too obvious.
This cache is something more like you’d see in Salt Lake City rather than a rural area like Price. It’s also the county’s first “micro” cache. Nearly all the caches in Carbon County are hidden outside of any towns, and they’re usually under junipers or rocks. Mine is between an oil change place and a tire store, sitting in plain sight on a strip of land that I believe is owned and maintained by Price City. It’s also right near an exit on US-6, and I’m sure it’ll get more visits from travelers than from people who live around here.
I normally get first-to-find on any new caches in this area–I suppose nobody else is as rabid as I am when it comes to geocaching. But since this cache is one of my own, it could potentially sit for a relatively long time before somebody gets FTF.

  1. That figures–as soon as I opened my mouth about the cache not being found yet, somebody finds it! 🙂 Congrats Sam, I hope it wasn’t too frustrating. 🙂

  2. The micro cache is too small to fit much of anything inside–I just left a small logbook and a pencil. In one of the small (2″ PVC) caches I placed, I left a brand new pocket knife for the first-finder to keep. Here’s what I started my four large ammo box caches with:
