As Long As It Takes



Every once in a while a cache comes along that raises the bar.  I was fortunate enough to stumble on just such a hide right before Christmas.  I’d like to share it with you.

The cache is called As Long As It Takes (GC42Y59) and is a co-hide/co-concept of well-known Northeast Pennsylvania cacher John Galt? and his friend Manon TT Mitty.  The hide itself is quite nice, but that’s not the real trick.  You see, the cache container is locked.  Oh, I know what you’re thinking – I’ve seen this before; you have to solve a puzzle to get the combination.  Well that’s not quite it…

There is a travel bug floating around the area – travel bug TB5GYKM – that contains the lock combination.  If you can get the bug, you’ll know how to open the cache.  But like I said, it’s a travel bug… so it keeps moving around!  Where it goes, well, that’s up to whoever has it!
I just happened to get lucky the day this cache was published.  The COs started the fun by launching the travel bug in a hide that wasn’t too far from me – Runaway Hotel (GC2WJM8).  I quickly ran out to that particular cache.  When I opened it and saw the travel bug, I knew I had a First-To-Find coming!  Deciding to be a tad devilish, I didn’t log the travel bug until AFTER I found the geocache.  As you can see from the logs, others attempted to grab the bug from Runaway Hotel not knowing, of course, that somebody (me) already swiped the bug.  Yes, a slight breach of etiquette perhaps, but, hey, I had to have a LITTLE fun, right??

This is one of the cleverest ideas I’ve seen in a geocache, and I felt it needed to be shared.  Thanks to the COs for putting out great hides in our area and keeping the game fresh.  Maybe you’d like to try something like this where you live?

And to everybody still trying to log this one, keep at it… for as long as it takes!

I wondered how well this idea would go over here in Wyoming valley and I have to say, it has been a LOT of fun reading the logs and talking to some of the TB chasers. Seems there are quite a few who are always a day late & a dollar short of getting the bug before it flies again.
DLC had me laughing my fool head off during his adventure.
Thanks so much for featuring "As Long As It Takes" Manon Mitty and I have an even bigger crazier cache coming soon!

We always love a crazy cache at CacheCrazy.Com. I have to grab this one. I like the "moving target"concept!
Great feature Dodger! Thanks !

Wow We have some real evil geniuses out there.
This is one of the coolest most diabolical ideas that I have ever seen.
Now I feel the need to lubricate the gears in my head and try to dream up something that will really make some geo-heads spin on their axis. :)

Smithers Knows that I can dream up some twisted ideas. I just rarely put them into action. :D

This sounds so cool. I can't wait to try and find it. Nice article Dan and yes that was low, but funny. Glad I wasn't looking for it yet.
