There were, at one time, several great night caches in the area but, sadly,
they are gone.  The only special equipment I have for night caching is a
nice, strong flashlight.  I've only seen one cache that required UV and it
could be figured out without it.  Maybe I;ll start scouting the area to see
if I can put one out.
