The Axial Geocache #4-2012 Cache and Carry – Found!

Axial Geocache #4-2012

Congratulations to Dan M. of Minot, ND for making the trip and finding the Axial Geocache #4-2-12

Axial Geocache #4-2012

Dan found the Geocache on Oct 4th, his birthday, which was quite a long journey for him coming all the way from North Dakota. Way to go Dan!!!!!
Here is what he had to say about his adventure.

“I want to first say thanks to Axial for a great geocache! I recently saw your post on facebook that two of Axial’s geocaches were still out there to be found. I couldn’t believe that no one had found them yet! With my birthday coming up on October 4th, my wife and I decided to plan a trip to Cocoa Beach to look for cache #4. We flew from Minot, North Dakota to Miami (1950 miles) and drove up the coast (206 miles) to the cache spot. When we arrived at the coordinates, it was getting dark and had started to rain so hard that we had to take shelter. The lightening was intense and knocked out all lights in the area, so we decided to wait until the next morning, Oct. 4th (my birthday) to search again for the cache. We looked at the pictures on the blog page and were certain we were at the right spot. We got up early the next morning and headed back to the cache spot. After a few minutes of searching, I saw the green box. I could not believe I found it! Upon opening the box I was excited to find an XR10 kit. What an awesome birthday present!

I’ve been geocaching for years and have found numerous caches, but this was the best cache “booty” ever.
I regret that I was not able to bring my Wraith along for the ride, but will send pics of my crawler at home in North Dakota. My Wraith is pretty much stock except for a couple minor tweaks like Jamie Varner (MMA fighter) driving but I would like to customize it more in the future.
Thanks again for the adventure and the prize!”


Dan scored a complete Axial XR10 Rock Crawler… well almost complete, and some cool Axial swag only available to the Geocache finders. Dan, we are sending you the missing parts bags so you can assemble the kit.

Congratulations to Hans Twardowski and family from Hemet, CA. They were able to get out and find Axial Geocache #3-2012

Axial Geocache #3-2012

Hans and family found the Geocache on Nov. 24th on their way back from Tucson, AZ. They decided to make the stop and enlist the use of a friends boat to get them there. Here is what Hans had to say about their adventure.


“My wife, daughter and I were headed to Tucson for Thanksgiving with family. We heard about the geocache from Hot Rock Hobbies in Lake Havasu City and figured it was probably gone, so we went to Tucson first. While in Tucson, we kept an eye on the comment board expecting the cache to show as found. When we left Tucson Saturday morning, I checked one more time and still noticed the cache was showing not found. We decided to take a side trip and hunt for the cache before returning home to California. We met up with a friend who owns a boat and headed for the site. The boat ride was about 20 minutes south of the city and worth every minute of it even if it was a bust. Once we found the right location, we beached the boat and headed for some rock crawling. We scoured the entire area before attempting to climb the rock itself. As I was passing a small outcropping, I looked down and spotted the cache. I called my wife and daughter to come see the site. We began uncovering the end and weren’t aware of how large the box was until it kept getting bigger. Eventually, we uncovered the entire box and secured the crawler. We then had to climb down the rock to get back to the boat (almost as hard as getting to the rock, but definitely worth the effort). Once we got back to the boat, we headed to town and Hot Rock Hobbies to meet the owners and thank them for the heads up on the excellent challenge. Since we geocache and have RC cars, it was a great combination to both hobbies we enjoy. The staff at Hot Rock Hobbies (Kim Adams and Jim McKay) was very knowledgeable and friendly and offered to assist us in any way we need to make this a new addition to our outdoor recreation. I already have a trophy truck, but am extremely excited to try rock crawling. According to Kim and Jim, this is a great truck and Axial deserves great credit to bringing many hours of enjoyment to RC hobbiests everywhere.”

Hans scored a complete Axial SCX10 Dingo Kit… well almost. As usual we kept a bag of parts to encourage him to let us know he found the geocache. Hans also got some of the coolest Axial swag only available to the geocache finders.
