WOW Factor

Time to get back to this blog.  I got burnt out of blogging in the last quarter of 2010.  But I saw a cache that I just had to post about.  And this cache features something I might consider the WOW Factor.  It's not a new concept, but the WOW Factor basically means a cache that makes your jaw drop.  It's cool.  It's creative.  It's something you want to show your friends.  It's the cache you don't forget.  A previously featured cache, Dr. Who is an example of a WOW Factor cache.  So is this one.  By the way, I'm not providing the name or GC Code for this one as I haven't talked with the owner.  But at the moment, it is an archived cache so you'll just have to do with drooling over what you missed.

Now, you might be asking yourself, "Why was THIS archived?" The exact answer hasn't been made public as far as I'm aware, but it wouldn't be hard to guess. The partial burial is partly to blame. If permission was obtained, burial would likely be allowed. This one probably doesn't have the permission of the property owner. At least, that's my guess. There are indications that if that is obtained, it might be unarchived. This one deserves to be seen. It's unfortunate that it got archived, but it's also a good example of why permission should be obtained before placement of a geocache, especially one of this caliber.

Damn, I wish I would have known about this one before it was archived!!!!!! Thanks for sharing this one. I hope they find a place where they CAN get permission. Or that they seek permission for this one... its awesome!

What a great idea for a cache. Maybe one can be done in a similar fashion. Thanks for sharing.
