+Dread_Pirate_Bruce Posted July 21, 2010 Share Posted July 21, 2010 I am aware that not all things that seem to be geocaches are listed on geocaching.com, and I may have run into one of these. Nonetheless, I am seeking others' thoughts about what I found. My buddy and I were out riding quads in the Mojave Desert. We used the opportunity to grab some caches and hide some caches. We were on a trail that required a 4x4 or better. We went after one particular cache that required a 200 foot walk/climb. I followed the GPS and got within 8 feet of GZ when my buddy pointed to a UPR in a crevice. When I removed the rocks, I found a wooden box. It was about 15 inches by 15 inches by 4 inches. It was varnished. There was something in it that rattled or moved as I tilted the box. The box was labeled something like "Geo-Box" with some other notations that I should have noted better. I could find no easy way to open it. There were eight small screws holding the side panel onto the box. However, I did not have a small enough screwdriver and in any event was not inclined to take it apart in the desert heat, while perched on a pile of rocks. So, I put it back and replaced the UPR. There was no cell reception, so I could not consult the website with my cell phone to see if the cache was some sort of puzzle. I gave up and started climbing down. As I did, I found the cache I was actually seeking. The two were probably within 20 feet of each other. I sent an e-mail to the owner of the cache as listed and asked about the "Geo-Box." He had no clue. Once it isn't so hot, we may go back. However, for now, I'll ask if anyone has any ideas beyond that this was part of someone else's "game." Quote Link to comment
