Way to go Tracy! I think I have a love-hate relationship with LA caches. There's a pile of them for sure, some easy but many tough. The Hookers Vitamin series is a case in point...some nearly immpossible! Then there's luccaron caches.... one very tricky Frenchman for sure. Mon dieu!!!
And KG puts out very few easy caches and gob-ler has one in front of his office that will make you crazy.
All in all, I love heading to this area, always knowing a few DNF's are likely!
Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.
