Our final Axial Geocache for 2011
Congratulations to Rhett Mora of Fernley, NV for getting out and finding the Axial Geocache #6…. The last one for 2011.
Rhett fuond the Axial Geocache #6 on December 28th, 2011 at 2:55PM PST.
Here is what Rhett had to say about his adventure.
“My name is Rhett Mora, and I just found the #6 Geocache. I want to start by saying thanks to Axial for all you guys do for the crawling community. I first saw the post for the Geocache #6 last Saturday Dec 24th. I saw that someone posted that they were there the day before and couldn’t find it. So I thought someone had already grabbed it. I was a little bummed as this one was close enough for me to go look for. Well, I kept checking back to see if the person that found it would post it up. Then on Wednesday Dec. 28th I saw a post by RECON Crawlers that said the Geocache was still there on Sunday Dec 25th. Well, I happened to have the day off, and said what the heck if all else fails at least I can get some crawling in. So I loaded up my Axial crawlers programed the coordinates into my GPS and started the 40 minute drive to Reno, NV. I was able to drive to within 300 ft of the coordinates. So I put my garmin in pedestrian mode and started walking. I got to the top of the hill and got the GPS to say I was 4 ft from it, but just couldn’t seem to find it. So I put the gps down and just started looking under all the rocks. Spent about 10 minutes looking on the wrong side of the hill, as soon as I climbed back over the hill, the first rock I looked under I saw something green. Odd thing is, because of the green I thought I had found a different Geocache and that I had found an Xbox 360 game. But then I started to notice that it said Axial all over it. Then I got real excited. I couldn’t believe that after all this time it was still there. Thanks again.”
