How far would you go for a cache?

This picture is from a cache I completed a few weeks ago. As I approached this "tunnel" which was mostly covered with snow I was confused because the GPS was saying 35' to go. I dug out the snow which was covering most of the very small entrance only to discover the entrance was mostly blocked by rocks. The bottom of the picture shows the snow / rocks blocking the entrance. Fortunately the owner warned me the final was going to require me to get dirty. From here I went back and got the flashlight and sure enough there's the ammo box - 35' feet into the tunnel. I did the backwards belly crawl in and duck walked back to the cache. The entire tunnel is less than 3' high so even once inside there isn't a lot of room. Then I duck walked back out and belly crawled out through the hole. With my winter gear on it was a bit of a tight squeeze, but I managed to get in / out without incident.

Definately one of those more memorable caches.
