The funny thing is that week before last we were at Jones Park and my son and husband were at Pi and I was at Bear with my 2 daughters - we called each other both saying "you've got to come here this is the BEST CACHE EVER".  The girls went to Pi - enjoyed it tremendously, then took the boys back to Bear.  We then debated the pros and cons of both caches to decide which one was the best one ever.  We could never agree.  There are more weeks in the year, no?  I have heard of Special Tools Required but not Olive.  I will have to put that on my list - thanks!!!

Easy as Pi is my favorite cache I have found.  It is a premium only cache and My wife and I found it with my son we all dropped our jaws when we put one and one together.  Bear in the Woods is equally amazing tough call for me.

Haven't done special tools yet, so for now 'Easy as Pi' gets my vote.

Easy as Pi is just as amazing as brown bear, no doubt.  We stood in absolute awe at both caches.  MWG is incredible.

Easy as Pi is a take off "Spinning Wheel" in case you didn't know that.

I really liked both, A Brown Bear Went in the Woods and Special Tools Required. Haven't done Easy as Pi so can't give an opinion on it. If i had to pick just one, then i guess STR would be it. Very creative and a whole lot of fun too!

Thinking out loud brothers and sisters but sorting by FAVS exposes already well known and great hides in interesting places. It seems to me the "Cache of the Week" is an opportunity to promote the new or undiscovered gem. Great Caches that are under the radar for some reason. Don't get me wrong, I love the Caches discussed above...but high FAVs already speak for them. I want to know about the future.
Why am I all sweatty and late? Umm...

Yeah but there are plenty of weeks in a year, no?  We will burn up the favorites first and then find the hidden gems?

OK, if we rule out the ones with a lot of favorites:

 

I vote

 

1. GC2X3J1 End of the Rainbow by Bubberdad

2. GC4CY3E Got Sold by Rozowski5

3. GC38035 A Shocking Discovery by .JPEG

 

Oh, btw: I did list them in random order!

I think Kenny has a good point.  Most of us are already aware of the great ones that have been around for awhile but we'd like to know what are the great ones coming out now.  Since our region is only getting spotlighted every 6 weeks then we need to use this wisely.
