Southern Live Oak, Quercus virginiana

Southern Live Oak Leaves

While wandering around the woods near the historic McIntosh Sugar Mill Ruins, I spotted this camouflaged box at the base of a massive live oak.  I thought it was either a geocache, or some sort of trap.

I pulled it away from the tree and discovered it was an old ammo case covered with live oak bark.

Inside I found a log book and requisite landfill fodder.  The only item of interest was an old Thundercats comic.  I looked up the coordinates and discovered that it was originally a puzzle cache with clues based on facts about the location.
