Created by Craig in honor of the start of a new year of caching. Left in the appropriately named cache, A Smiley Start, on January 8th, 2010. The 8th find on our Tri-State Caching Event trip.
Janus was the Roman god of gates, arches, doorways, endings and beginnings. The month of January is named after Janus. Unfortunately, the gate of Janus was traditionally closed when the country was at war.
Janus hid, but was ferreted out by the Ferreteers on January 23, 2010.
They took him home and treated him to the traditional Ferreteer hospitality.
The Ferreteers write: “As you can see, the ferrets were very gentle with Janus Ducky giving him hugs and warm embraces.”
Janus was desperate and convinced them to take him on their next caching trip. There, a way out of this situation would present itself.
“…But yet, when out in the wild, the Janus Ducky planned with the other ducks…“
“…to surround and overpower the Ferreteers...”
“…Thankfully the Ferreteers were able to overcome Janus Ducky…”
“…and safely lock him away in GC9D2A – RPA 20 Brookwood Hall.”
