Geocache Description:

The above coords will take to you a quaint cemetery in Arbor Vitae, WI. This cemetery is special to me because it is near one of my childhood homes. During a recent visit I was surprised to see two headstones of bravery so close together in a small town cemetery.

Please bring your own writing utensil.


The listed coords will take you to meet Mr. Helland and Mr. Hanson, two brave men who earned the same honor from the military.To find the final, you will need to do a little math (you may want to show your work.)

The final can be found at:
N45 54.ABA
W089 43.CDE

A = the number of letters in the second word of the recognition they earned
B = the sum of all the individual numbers you see in Mr. Hanson's death date (exclude the month)
C = the difference of their birth years
D = Mr. Helland's death month
E = the numerical difference of their birth months

WSQ stands for Wisconsin Spirit Quest. As with any cemetery hide, the cache container is not located in contact with any gravestones, monuments, or other memorials but the cache may use information on a headstone for reference.
Cemeteries are not parks. Please respect the area and hunt cemetery caches only during daylight hours and respect visitors who are there.

The reason this is not winter friendly is that the headstones will be covered.



Congratulations to refelo for the FTF on June 29, 2009
