Hello Hunter. Like you and others I have also followed the trail to the end. It leads to a fairly accurate location, I figure if you dig a 2 foot diameter hole you will almost certainly hit part of the cache. Like you I have doubts as to whether it is still there. Considering the history of the hunt, I can see good reasons why it may not be. Having said that I may be able to help you in deciding if you are actually in the correct spot. If you can tell me the exact date you dug, and if there were any recent indications of a previous dig at or near that spot. Cheers.
