How did  Row versus Wade (or possibly Deliverance?) get dropped off the list? :-\ :'(

It was last found on 12/31/2005. Only a handful of folks have had the stones to attempt it. ;D;)???::):P

It got left off of the list because it is 118ish miles from downtown.  This is way outside of the 50 mile from downtown boundary for this list.

Wow, that sounds like an incredibly difficult trek to get out there to that cache!

Not for me. ;)

But some other folks thought they could make a shortcut to the cache. They made a BIG mistake!

Looks like about 1.5 miles ..or so...

Obtaining the coords was easier than we thought....

..except..

their exact location is still a mystery.

If we say how we got them it would spoil the fun and challenge.

The moving cordinates TB is now MIA, unless OSC has yet to log it?? I thought from my research folks were leaving it in the cache it was in, but it's not there now. Any ideas? Had it on my watch list. Was out there and ran into the Mr or GraingerFam who was also looking for it and let me know it was MIA.  ??

What is the moving coordinates TB and how is it connected to the list of long unfound caches?

For the record:  The bug called "The Coordinates" is missing from the cache it's supposed to be in down in Brazos Bend.  GrangerFam went down there and confirmed that. 

We e-mailed LostGuys a couple months ago when we first saw the bug missing saying we were going down there to get the TB so we can do the cache called "Moving Coordinates" which is what the bug is based on but that we were concerned about going all that way if it was gone. (That cache had been on our front page since we started.)

LostGuys only reply to us was to give us the coordinates for the cache location.  Nothing else, no other words, no concern, no expression of curiosity, nothing.

We do not have the bug.  It's too bad it's gone.

We didn't know (and didn't ask) LostGuys if he thought it was ok to give out the final because it isn't our cache.  We were hoping he'd put out a replacement bug so others may find the cache.  Maybe we'll ask him for the bug number so we can do it.

We haven't discussed amongst ourselves whether we should offer to adopt this one or not.

It's a cache that would be a little rough to get to.  It's a little challenging because of where it is located and that's enough to say about it without giving too much away.

We would be happy to discuss the situation privately.  :)

I found The Adventures of 1Geocacher 12/5.  O0 O0  It had been muggled.  >:(  usmorrows confirmed my find and slightly repositioned the final. If you are working on this you should make note of the revised instructions for the final cache posted at the top of the cache description. I hope someone will fill me in on the details of the story. I know some of the local cachers and locations are featured. This one is great fun well deserving of the accolades.
