My scariest find: OKC-ON IV / The Tomb (GCH2B5), found on 2/7/04. The cache was a night cache and the container was a small wooden coffin, filled with toy bats, spiders, lizards, and snakes! Although the cache is in the greater OKC area, it is actually outside the developed area in some spooky woods. The fact that I found it near midnight on a bitterly cold winter evening probably added to the experience of this cache. My log:
I was visiting OKC for the weekend and just had to do at least one night cache. So I bid my wife farewell last night at 11 PM and took off from the hotel, in hot pursuit of The Tomb. I don't know OKC very well, but I was able to get to the parking area, with only one missed turn, in about 30 minutes. Soon, I was on the trail under the full moon, and by 11:37 PM, I had my find! What a neat box! Cache was in good shape. T - a bat & a rat; L - Monsters, Inc. key ring. I didn't notice anything spooky about the woods until I was finishing up with the cache. Then I started hearing something moving (a small animal, I hope) and a owl started hooting. The hair on my neck stood up and I shivered, but not from the extremely cold night air. I quickly headed off, back in the direction that I hoped would lead me to my van. Needless to say, I was happy when I spotted the road again! Thanks for a great night cache! But don't do this one alone ... for you may not be alone! -- ORR
