It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was a tough T-hunt. Five teams competed this hunt and only one found it after several hours of searching. Hints were provided as time passed yet the majority of the hunters did not finish the hunt. Marty (K6KTP) and his grandson were the only team to locate the fox, who was located under the high power line towers south of highway 168 and east of Tollhouse road.

This particular hunt found some of the hunters working together in order to locate the fox, yet the win and finish eluded their efforts. The teams consisted of Ron (N6MTS) and a friend; John (WJ6Y) along with his son and grandson; Conrad (WA6KUE) and his wife; and rounding up the teams were Dennis (KI6NVG), Gary (KM6CVB), and Rick (W6KKO).

By 1 PM the sky was darkening with rain clouds and the hunters were in need of food and refreshment. The teams and fox met at Tollhouse Market to enjoy some food and drinks. Commiseration was mutual amongst the hunters as the fox relayed the hiding location.  Fortunately, the food was good and we beat the rain home.
