The Old Way In

Next on the list was Electric Eels, which I had already done when in search for the above cache, so this one was Heather's. Unfortunately for her a DNF.
Time for lunch, so we stop off at the nearest Maccas for some sustenance. After that it's on to the next one.

|This was a funny decoy. Perhaps unintentionally, but we fell for it! :-)|

Outhouse with an Outlook
This cache really caused us headaches. It was the puzzle cache which I mentioned above. As we had solved the puzzle we knew the coordinates for GZ, but when we discovered the cache it appeared to be locked. It was an ammo box with lots of numbers on it.
We were a bit mystified by the hint, so Heather decided to ask the CO. We were given a bit more information, but not enough. As we still couldn't open the box we went on to find a few more caches first, and then came back to this one. Heather thought the hint pointed to the coords and tried a few combinations, to no avail. I, on the other hand, had thought about the numbers on the box. They must have been there for a reason, so I related the hint to the numbers and on my third try: voila! Box open, log signed and we were ready to go home after yet another pleasant day in each other's company.
What bugged us though was the fact that Judy had been in the meantime and was able to open the box and sign the log without apparent problems. She's good, that lady! :-)
