(visited by Shawn Englehart)

04-May-2003 -- My wife, Holly and I were in the area today visiting some local Geocaches, of which this is a virtual named Betwixt and Between (GCDF21). Holly decided to stay with the car as I entered the bush, you can get within 280m by car.

There is a cut leading right to the location but is quite muddy this time of year with many wheel ruts from years ago. At about 180m from the confluence, this old cut has alot of water and mud. Looking into the woods on either side things looked alot drier, but I would suggest to stay out of the woods, "Thorn Trees!!". I have never been so afraid of trees before. These are not just the small trees, they are grey and look like some of the non lethal trees with thorns at eye level.

At around 150m into the woods I was stuck, I could not press forward and was afraid to turn back, took me 15 minutes to make my way back to the cut line. Once back on the wet trail, a bit of long stepping was what I needed to keep my feet relatively dry.

Once at the location, I found a white container, a geocache which was found by the previous visitors to the confluence and long forgotten. The marking on the top has been washed off, but the paper inside was protected with a ziplock baggie with just abit of mildew forming. I did damage the container when I opened it, kind of brittle now. I signed the sheet and placed it at the base of the tree at the confluence.

The confluence itself appears to be at a future intersection when the subdivision is futher developed as there are intersecting cut line here running East-West and North-South with the confluence just off to the corner of the intersecting cuts.

The walk back to the car was quick and by staying out of the woods, painless. I hope my next confluence visit is not as far apart as my 1st to 2nd.
