I wanted to start a thread where people could talk about great caches they have done recently and what they loved about them (without giving spoilers).  I've got two in mind. 

The first is The Last Ammo Can GC111BE.  I loved it because it was a good old fashioned bushwack, plenty of climbing, mud and nice scenery along the Buffalo Bayou. 

The second is A Tribute To Steve Fossett GC1HJ16.  I solved the puzzle in five minutes, but it took me 4 trips to find the cache.  An absolute brilliant hide by GrangerFam.

Interested to hear about caches you all have done recently that you loved.

Both of those caches are great!  I did The Last Ammo Can last year, and it was a crazy bushwack!!  Also, Steve Fosset took us a long time to find too!  3 trips and PAF!

We were headed to Martin Dies State Park during spring break and did this cache GCNT5B "Village Crick Crossing".  The cache was hidden in an old railroad bridge that crossed over a creek.  We had a great time enjoying the location and the hide was tricky as well.  It was My nephews first introduction into caching and he had a great time on the bridge and ended up climbing all over that structure.

I also did the island cache at Martin Dies SP "Stranded on Steinhagen!" GC13W66  I had fun paddling out to this location.  Someone had actually gotten stranded (sort of) on the island and posted the log below:

This weekend I did the Slick Shoes Series http://www.geocachin...6b-af0bf8b134f0.  Actually, I ended up doing them twice.  After I came back with Alex, Sydney (who couldn't go) saw how muddy the Jeep was and was mad I went without her.  So Sunday we went back.  ;)

Most were Jeep-n-Grabs  :).  The water level had noticably gone down from Sat to Sun along the ruts of part of the route, but there were still some great puddles to splash through and a mountain to play on.  Got to see some nature out there, too, as Syd almost stepped on a snake.  >:D

I will second the motion for Village Crick Crossing as well.  It was a great walk on, under, and around the bridge.

I also enjoyed everyone of the House Series...GC1NWW1 is one....

Took the Jeep this weekend and did the Slick Shoes series and it was a blast. I think Jacob wishes we had waited a week because of all the beries that will soon be ready for picking out there. No need to call this a slick shoes series right now of course as it is dry as a bone but it was fun. I certainly would suggest this to everyone.

No I won't, just need one more letter and number to solve cache.  Also did you do the Alien Pod?

No we didn't. Took a bad approach and then called it a day. Got to 350 ft away. Really should have looked at the aereal views on the iPhone.

Alien Pod is a great cache.  Probaby easier to approach from another way, but be sure to do it while you're out there.  Very well done.

So OHL or Cachestacker, I see it should be approached from another way, suggestions?

The easiest approach to Alien Pod is to park at the suggested coords, head east-southeast until you're about 300' from the parking coords, and then head south.
Of course, this was NOT the way that I went, but the way that I returned. 

No we didn't. Took a bad approach and then called it a day. Got to 350 ft away. Really should have looked at the aereal views on the iPhone.

So your saying this is not a jeep-n-grab, going to have to hike it in and out?

For Alien Pod, I had the GPS route me to it, which took me into the nearby neighborhood.  I parked at the curb, walked through a vacant lot between two houses and across a right of way.  I had to climb over a barbed wire fence, but then it was a short hike to the cache.
