Go on a search in a local cemetery for a Soldier and other characters to help find the final cache
This cache is done in honor of a career soldier Chick Caywood who was a master Sargent and severed in both Korea and Vietnam. He was quite a character around Minocqua and a member of the Legion Hall. Pay your respects to great soldier and find a few other interesting characters to get the coordinates to the cache
Cache is a rubbermaid container.
Cemetary can be reached by car or bike. If you are biking to the cache on The Bearskin Trail, we have 2 other caches a little further down the trail at 2 other cemetaries that would keep you busy for the afternoon The Garden of Sleep and Whispering Woods all could be accessed off the Bearskin trail. The trail does require a bike pass and they can be purchased by the Chamber of Commerce (where another cache is located Destination Diva's cache) or BJ's Sportshop. If you walk the trail it is free.
Beyond the Cemetery Caches just south of Hazelhurst also on the Bearskin is Bearskin Booty and 1888 was a good year for an entire day of biking and caching. End of the Road cache in Hazelhurst could also be picked up by bike a short .5 miles off the trail
