FM156, Justin, TX, US

This hide has a little bit of everything -- an APE tag, a quiet road in Justin Texas, railroad tracks in the vicinity so you may spot a passing train, and a geocache nearby in the cemetery to the north!

Simple park and grab on the third pole from the south on the guardrail - shouldn't give you any trouble with snagging this APE!

The ape wanted to find shelter in the nearby tunnel but learned that it was just too busy with all the traffic, he found this beautiful park but happened to fall in between the crack.

Saw this one was available last night still but my husband didn’t want to make the drive . Luckily it was still here when we woke up so jumped in the car and drove over an hour. Luckily it was still there when we finally pulled in and quickly made the find!

I saw this in the morning by a fluke looking for my work email. So after throwing some clothes on and battling the drive in the snow (and seeing an accident right when I got to the main road) I was able to get to the location in untouched snow. I am stoaked to be able to grab this after searching every nook and crack around the coordinates. It is our first Spot the Ape and couldn't be more stoaked seeing this is the first one in Spokane posted. So stoked to get this other half!!!

Don't "knuckle" under with the stress of trying to find this tag! It's pretty easy to locate on this old caboose. (There's also a Geocache nearby) Good luck!!

The APE took a road trip to Vermont, specifically Brattleboro, and decided they wanted to also go to New Hampshire. The APE took a rest by a tree with a NO Camping sign, so a quick rest and then onto more exploring.....

Looks like Ape wants to hi-jack this jet and soar off into the wild blue yonder. He is lurking around the base of this structure waiting for the right time to take flight. HINT: he is hiding in an Altoids tin at the right side of the structure under some “mineral” deposits.

Saw this published while getting ready for work this morning, and was already 30 mins after publication before I was out the door. Made the quick trip over and started looking. I thought for sure I had been beat because GZ had changed since the posted pix were taken. Almost gave up, but spied the ticket way underneath. Thanks for placing this for me to find

This tag is way down low. The great Ape and his friends guard this tag from a distance. You may need a tott to get this out. If you shove it in further, it may be lost forever. Probe gently.

US-93, Alamo, NV, US

Saw this listing posted this today as I drank my my morning coffee. I tossed the idea around for a bit and decided to go for it if it hadn't been claimed by the time I finished gassing up by car and getting an oil change. I doubled checked after my tasks were completed and saw it was still unclaimed. So, I put on an audio book, grabbed some snacks and headed out. Luckily, it was right in place when I got there and in a really cool tin. Thank you for hiding this, this was a nice fun day for me and, much needed.

found with drjinx at about 7:45 am this morning. Just a slight drizzle and a couple of dog walkers out this morning.

This was the first Golden Ticket we've seen published nearby this year, so we're glad we could make the claim. Now... off to work.

Thanks for placing these tickets!

This find was the thrill of the day! We dashed out of bed with messy hair and empty bellies. Driving in a controlled frantic mode and believing everybody was on the same path, we pulled in safely to victory!

Thank you for the ticket! Kid was so excited to find.

I'm sooo excited!!! I didn't think any would be posted in Utah! I'd stopped checking and on a whim I looked and 1.5 hours earlier it had posted, I rolled outta bed and out the door to make the grab!

Many thanks to the hider, you made my day!

Came out to find this one with very little sleep last night. I made it harder than it needed to be so after walking in circles for a bit I put the coordinates in and made the easy find. Thanks for the hide and for taking me out today!


cron publish 2 months 3 days ago 029 - Oh Deere!

Crestloch Rd, Pasco, WA, US

The Ape must have needed some chocolate so he stopped by the Country Mercantile to get a little nibble. Saw this fancy tractor outside and went to investigate. But he had to "shift gears" because there were too many muggles for him to hang around long. Even so, he left his trademark Golden Ticket.


cron publish 2 months 3 days ago 032 - One for the show!

W 2500 S, West Valley City, UT, US

This ape had two tickets to the show, but wanted to be responsible and social distance from his friend. He left his ticket outside for you to pickup and join him at a later date.

Bulls Bridge Rd, South Kent, Kent, CT, US

The Ape was seen in the Town of Bulls Bridge, Kent, CT. Such a beautiful area to frolic near the raging water. The Ape is NOT on the bridge, but take the time to walk across it. A short hike to see the falls and raging water will lead you to a golf club shaped tree (see picture). The Ape took a rest there to look at the water.

I believe this one was found as there were prints in the snow. It sure would of been nice for the person to have marked it as claimed. They could of driven 10 minutes East to get cell service. Oh well it was a nice drive even with the winter weather.

Mulholland Dr, Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, CA, US

Please safely park in the parking lot that is across the street from the tag. Once you have snagged the tag, leave everything else where you found it. I will be creating a geocache after someone has snagged the tag. If you want to sign the log AWAY from the FTF row, you can claim the BetaFind once the FTF has been logged.

Good luck and congratulations to the person who retrieves this.

This APE was wandering around the Cape Horn trail. He stopped to enjoy this view and lost his ticket stub to the big show. Can you help locate the missing ticket stub? The APE was near the tree by the last post, look low under natural camo.

10th Ave NW, Richmond Highlands, Shoreline, WA, US

each morning I awaken make coffee cross the road in front of my home for the morning paper road on one side ravine, stream, and forest on the other

carefully moving back avoid morning traffic I shift away from a rushing world into the glowing

it peeks between trees reflects from luminous throats of hummingbirds shimmers against a rushing stream dances in morning fog rising ghostlike from the forest floor becomes lacy white light washing over everything and me

having stepped back across the road I realize how easily the glowing disappears when I lose myself in an acclerated world

What an adventure, as it was Veterans day I had projects around the house and didn’t check my email till after lunch. I seen this tag publish 7 hrs ago and was 100 miles away. I called my geo buddy Butterfly_77 to see if she wanted to go on an adventure. She came to town as I gassed up my geovan. We took the fastest route and kept refreshing the tag page the whole way. Thank you for placing this tag for a local in the area to find! It made our day :)

Ape found downtown Coeur'dAlene climbing around on the tall buildings. Needing a rest it came out onto the boardwalk. Found a bench to take that rest and it fell asleep. Be stealthy enough you might still find it sleeping down under.
