Geocache Description:

The posted coordinates are not where the cache is located, the post office will be quite unhappy if you start tearing through their bushes.


All the kings horses, and all the kings men, better not put Lady Catherine together again. This is a cache that requires getting coordinate numbers from other caches in the area. Will take some time to do this one, possibly a good part of a day.


The evil witch, Lady Catherine, a protege of Morgana, has been creating an enormous amount of mischief around Camelot. With Merlin's help, Arthur's men were finally able to subdue her. An immediate death order was carried out. She was drawn and quartered, but her magic continued to linger as the limbs attempted to reassemble themselves.


Merlin, whose sorcery is superior, spirited the parts away into various nether regions of Camelot. Warnings have been posted throughout the kingdom: So long as the body parts of Lady Catherine do not come within 528 ft. of one another, she will have no further power.


Your mission is to be certain Catherine's parts are still residing in the locations Merlin banished them to. For those brave and hearty souls who undertake this endeavour, Merlin created a special container to log your report in. This box will only magically appear if you have indeed located ALL the body parts, including the lady's head which tends to float about. The box will offer a variety of treasures for the finder to trade.


To find the final location which is an ammo box, find the numbers located on the dispersed parts, and replace them in the following: N44 44.ABC and W088 26.XYZ.


One part is a travel bug that must stay in a cache within a 25 mile radius of Bonduel, WI. Also, you must not hold onto the piece for more than 48 hrs., as it has been known that the head of Catherine is very powerful and may corrupt the holder with evil if retained too long. The parts are located in the following caches.


1. We Stand On Guard for Thee
2. The Quest of Camelot - Wiscowsin
3. Lady Catherine Loses Her Head
4. Pendragon's Advance
5. Sir Cedric Droppeth Off the Whelps at the Pool
6. King Pellinore's Polish Conquest WP1


DO NOT REMOVE any of the parts from the caches they are located in except for the TB, be fair to the other cachers. There was a FTF prize of an unactivated travel slug in the final.


Congratulations to Gotta Run for the FTF.
