This is just a shameless plug for my new cache.

http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=80bc5cca-fab8-4dbf-ae2d-5a26585da05f

In order to view it you must know a little about how it is done so I would suggest that if you haven't done one of these before that you can learn to practice it here: http://www.magiceye.com/

About 10 years ago I was given a Magic Eye book for Christmas and have been fascinated by it since. Once you master the trick then it should only take a couple of seconds for it to work. The added benefit is that it is an excellent eye exercize and many people have noticed an improved eyesight from doing the exercizes as well. Here is one that you can work on if you aren't familiar with it, Let me know what it says ok? Not on here though,PM me with your correct answer. Don't want to spoil it for everyone.

If I was going to Waterville for Christmas I might have a chance for a FTF, but the kids and grandchildren are coming here. It will have to wait till mid winter.

Nice job Haffy.

I could never do those things! I'll have to get some kid at school to go cross-eyed for me and get those numbers. Once again, they'll be convinced that I am insane.

What is this, a revenge for "eagle eye stash"? ;)
I can never see these things. I tried on several for a few days and finally saw two, really cool, but my eyes were fuzzy for a week!

I am familiar with these magic eye books back from my teaching days, and tried them this morning with success. I see that the site gives you directions, but I just did them by staring at the center of the pix and then spacing out, Surely there are those of you who can do that? Just don't try too hard.. get in the zone and the magic will happen.
Unfortunately I can't do a 4 hour road trip right now!

Hey that's pretty cool. I've always been pretty good with those. I'd love to know how to make your own.

I brought one of these to the Halloween Event last year from a cache in England, it was a real hoot watching people try it!

Good luck with it!

I think it must be. Someone must have told Haffy that I have never in my life even begun to see an image or words in these things. Lee has a big book of them and has no problem. So, that is my out!

What an excellent idea!!! I love it! Partly because it's very original, and partly because I was able to see the numbers fairly easily. ;)

I think sometimes it becomes a swear word to people who don't play the game:rolleyes:
