Geocache Description:

A small plastic box hidden traditionally.

Be sure to look in the lid for the clue to #12.

This is a series of 13 caches similar to Panther in the Den’s Can Can series further south along the river, but with a few less hides. Think of it as Can Can’s poorer cousin. My dad and I had a great time doing the Can Can, so I wanted to fill the gap along this part of the Des Plaines in a similar way.

All the hides are close to the trails. A few are right next to the trail, so be careful of the muggles! None are more than 250 foot from the trail, with pretty minimal bushwacking. It’s meant to be a quick, fun series.

Like Can Can, the series can be done in triads, or all at once.

The series is dedicated to a friend of mine, Mike, who recently passed away. He was always trying to keep me up-to-date on various sporting events. So, the theme of the series is the Big Ten Conference.

This particular cache is for the students who balance athletics with academics at Ohio State University, which was admitted to the “Intercollegiate Conference of Faculty Representatives,” which later became known as the “Big Ten Conference,” in 1912.

Let’s also congratulate the 2007 Outstanding Sportsmanship Award Winners from Ohio State, Antonio Smith (Football) and Jessica Davenport (Women's Basketball).
