GPS Cache in Kuwait!

Not sure if many of you know about the World Wide GPS Cache Hunt, but the premise is fairly simple: Somebody hides a cache in a location (usually a few souvenirs in a box or bag) and then uploads the GPS waypoint location into a website, with an added hint or two. You download the numbers on your GPS machine (or enter them manually), go to the site, find the cache, take a souvenir and replace it with another one. It's basically a GPS version of a treasure hunt.

According to this, there's a cache in Kuwait. Now I know at least one of you has a GPS system in the car, see if you can find it, have fun, and report back what you find!
(If you do it I promise to send you a postcard!)

sailor Thanks! If you have friends or family who use GPS in Kuwait, ask them to go check it out. The cache has been there since 2002, I'm really curious as to what's there now.

mark Yeah, I saw that. I'm just wondering about the people who haven't bothered to log in and leave comments.
I'm sure they're in the log book. Are you going to go take a look?

nibaq You rock! If you can take a pic, that'd be even better, but I'll settle for you coming back and telling me what's in there.

I'm really excited about this :)

I can't even view Marks URL!
Why do I have the feeling that I won't be the person to find it!

sailor and Mama Fusla don't worry about not getting to it before anyone else: the cache will still be there since people are not taking the whole thing, they just take one item out and replace it with another.

Go check it out (or have family/friends check it out for you if you're not in Kuwait). I promise, even if you're the last person to tell me that you saw it, I will *still* send you a postcard :)
