The ape was passing by and taken with the carvings on this totem and decided to stop and learn the story and history behind this place and the people of this beautiful land.

Kitsap Mall Blvd NW, Silverdale, WA, US

The ape was passing through town and thought that he would stop in and say hello to his Giraffe friend Geoffrey. He was shocked and dismayed to find that Geoffrey no longer lives here. In his dismay he dropped something. You may find what he dropped in a crack between to stones.

This ape was seen trying to enter this establishment without a mask and was denied entry. As the ape was walking back to their car, they threw their ticket stub in the nearby corner.

Apes like sweets too, don't they??? I placed the stub in a red first aid kit that is yours to keep.

After two DNF’s on other tags I was hoping for third time’s the charm. Unfortunately, I had an appt to get to so hubby had to go it alone. he struggled with the ape and got a little muddy, but came out victorious! I was so excited to see the photo pop up on my phone when he found it!!

Wanted to get one of these so bad!!! When one published early enough before I had to work, I gave my husband Onewheeler the look and off we went. We took both cars since I had to head to work after and Onewheeler had an appointment out in the valley. Worked out perfect. Can't wait to redeem for the coin!!! Some great just happened in 2020!!!!

This little ape was a smart monkey. He found his golden ticket by going to college. Look for the white dot on the tree. At the base, tucked in all safe and sound is your golden ticket.

This little ape found his golden ticket by training to be his own boss. Don't go in the gate, you aren't that kind of monkey. Look for the big rock on the grass. Your golden ticket lies at the base, facing the road.

Just at the west side entrance to the park you will find some trees that this ape likes to play in. Today he’s nestled in a cave keeping warm under some leaves!

This one popped up Saturday morning just as i was getting on the ferry to go off island. I was surprised to see it hadn't been claimed all weekend so i went out and grabbed it when i got back today.

Since it still was marked available I made a rush out before my appointment to go see if I can find it. Unfortunately I searched all around the base of the trail marker, stretching a little further out, but no luck. I was hoping it was just really hidden under a lot of debris, which didn’t look like it had been disturbed recently. But I just couldn’t look out. Such a bummer!

I've got a golden ticket!!!🎶🎵

Saw this published at 6:03 AM. Totally thought it was as a dawn agent until I looked again part way to Lafarge... I just had been figuring - do I shower first, or walk the dog first? Decision made! Coat over pyjama's, shoes on, geodog eagerly ran over to join in and off we went! Coincidentally, we were here last night until 8 pm walking the lake as my parents live across the street. The few lights that are up were on then, not this morning! It's still a lovely setting. And a great place for a walk! Two thumbs and 2 paws up!

Thanks for hiding this for me to find and adding a fun moment to the "get ready for work/school" routine!

I have heard stories of family in the part of the country. I decided to hitch a ride on the next vehicle that passed by on the pass. I made my way through the woods once I jumped off the car. I found my cousin and hope to spend some time with with the family, before a cacher comes and takes me home!!!

I am resting in front of my cousin's feet by a piece of wood. I love the great art work done on the nearby stumps.


cron publish 1 month 4 days ago 102 - Ape visits the Dog Park

This tag is located just a short distance up the trail at the base of the trail marker.


cron publish 1 month 4 days ago 105 - Dimmed Lights

Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, BC, CA

Much like many things this year the lights have been dimmed at the annual Lights at Lafarge holiday lights display. Only about half the lights were installed this year to prevent the large crowds that typically flock to the area. Despite a significantly pared down light display it's still a nice place for a wander.

In order to discover this Golden Ticket you might wander under the green and red arches before reaching a scene from the ocean. Once a whale is spotted you are close at hand to what you seek. Your keen senses will not be fooled by this bush in disguise. Check under the front ledge for the ticket, which is well protected from any falling rain. Good luck.

Yeah! Thank you to the hider for confirming the tag was still there. That was a toughie! We had moved on down to DuPont to do some caching and saw the confirmation. Just came back and spent about 10 minutes looking again. About to give up when one more look revealed the tag. Thank you! 😊

Checked the tag. Still tucked away nicely. The coords were confirmed (albeit by the same device) to be spot on.

Two of us arrived to find two other cachers already looking. Looked for quite a while with no luck. The other cachers said there was a guy looking when they arrived. So, 5 cachers, no tag 🙁

cron publish 1 month 5 days ago 040 - Dune Peninsula Park

N Waterfront Dr, West End, Tacoma, WA, US

An Ape was seen in the Dune Peninsula Park. It was fairly crowded, so he couldn't stay long, but he dropped a golden ticket!

The recently opened Dune Peninsula and Frank Herbert trail pay tribute to this Tacoma native who wrote the ecological masterpiece, Dune. The Dune Peninsula was built on remediated slag piles from the Asarco copper smelter that used to be located here. This smelter contaminated much of Western Washington with heavy metals and other contaminants. Much like what the Fremen did in Frank Herbert's books, the City of Tacoma has taken a world destroyed by industry and turned it into a beautiful and thriving space for both people and animals alike. There was once a time when pollution was considered a side-effect of prosperity and accepted as a fact of life.

Hint: Under a rock, but you can't move the rock.

I'll post more hints if needed.

This ape thought he had found the tunnel of light and was ready to go, but then saw it was just a cave, so threw away his ticket and left, perhaps you can retrieve the prize.

This ape was across the street getting tropical, he stubbed his big toe. So he limped over to get some first aid per Supplies to feel better.

cron publish 1 month 6 days ago 081 - Custer, Washington

I-5, Custer, WA, US

The Ape stopped on their way south from a quick trip to Canada. (Yes they have ways to get across the border). They enjoyed watching a game of golf, learning about the West Coast Green Highway, and the local history.

Custer was named after the first postmaster of the area, Albert W. Custer. It was originally located at Bay and Valley Road intersection but was moved when the railroad was built into the area.

Hint (actually major spoiler): Base of tree under branch, behind electrical equipment. See picture, gps resting on branch that tag is under.

The mirror was clever but difficult to find in pitch black. If you love turning over rocks, this cache is for you. This is a 4 hour drive so I’m pretty disappointed. Good luck next person. I’m over apes.

Ape recalls from ancient times where he might quench his thirst in the desert. This was the one spot where a spring flowed forth abundantly to form a stream in this dry desert. He left something behind.

This ape is hiding under a rock. He was hoping the tracks would guide him to a tunnel.
