Dundee stash - Large dog nearby made a final search dangerous. The dog was never closer than 100 meters but that's not enough "SA" for me and an unfriendly dog. Within .05 miles before giving up.
Bensenville Stash - I was warned by the Cache-Master (Stash-Master?) that water would be involved. So I wore my old tennis shoes. Insufficient response to the warning. Within .05 miles before giving up.
I expected to be home by 10am -- didn't get back till 3pm. I am considering making my stache (the word stash combined with cache) a drive-thru off a major highway. :)
