I brush hogged untill I didn't have a dry thread on me ! The bouncing of the tractor must have scrambled my brain. I began to wonder where was the oldest unfound full size ammo can cache in Arkansas.
After a cold shower and a change into some very old, faded, thin and comfortable overalls, ( you know the patched and nearly worn out kind I like so well ), I took a quick look.
After sitting in front of the computer, soaking up store bought air for a few minutes I had found only one in thirty pages.
It had been placed in 2005, and was quite a few pages back, and unfound.
According to the listing it is not a long hike, an atv could drive up to it.
So, my question is this:
As fast as caches are found in our state, how did this one miss being found ? And , . . . are their others ? Is there a easieer way to search :oops: than manually scrolling back like this old redneck did ? :oops:

mountainborn, just curious. Where is this cache?

Appears to be N/E of Russellville, about 30 miles.

a lot of people would skip it because of the 4 terrain. Or with the new cache alert programs some people backdate cache hides and it wont show up on them because it's not "new". I've a couple of approvers mention some hiders like to let their caches "age" a couple months or more before they post it gives the ammo can a good layer of leaves and stuff before the cachers go looking so it's harder to find

We've wondered about the 4th one on Phantoms list - "(1.5/1) 20 Mar 05 Ozark Oasis by The Sooners (GCN6C0)" - It's easy - and the cache page describes it as "almost a drive by". But no one has found it yet. The coords do look funny - one set has 00.000 so we wondered about that!

We emailed the owner about any problems but have never received an answer. Guess we might have to make a run down there and see what the problem is for ourselves! Just can't stand to see an unfound cache crying it's lonely little heart out! :lol:

OKAY NOW, I've been called a couple names here lately due to "C R A Z Y" one of my newer caches in Jacksonville, but I didn't let it sit for two months to let a layer of leaves accumulate!!! Now that IS devious !!! (Hmmmm . . .)

topkitty - that CRAZY cache can't be much more devious than it already is! But we managed to find it on Friday - and we're only slightlly crazier than when we started looking for it! It was a fantastic hide - thank you! Coming back today for more punishment! :roll:
