I was considering making my own replacement, and also considering taking my clothes off and catching some sun, when a cop drove up and told me I was in a federal wildlife refuge and the cache wasn't supposed to be there. I told him 'okay' since we could both plainly see that A) I was 10 feet on the public side of the fence and B) obviously that's just a trivial detail since he's a cop and C) if he had come like 10 minutes later my dick would've been floppin in the breeze which would've been embarrasing to us both. I found a coconut which had washed ashore from lands unknown, and put it in the back of the truck, and kept going down the beach, it was horribly polluted and deteriorated but I made it out okay.
I did find a couple more caches way out in BFE, covered in mosquitos and stinging vines. My lack of 4WD kept me from getting a couple others but mostly it was the lack of daylight by the time I got to Sabine Pass. Apparently the hurricane wiped out the town and they only got a grocery store last month or so says the lady at the Port Authority. I drove up and west back to I-10 and back to I-45 and down, altogether probably 200-300 miles for not so much done. I took some pics with my Nikon, I'll post them whenever.
