A 202 long NIGHT power trail- Yooper Style!
Though you can drive a car down these roads now,da ole boys usta call some a deez trails da Push Pull Rd. on account you would take two jeeps-one ta push,and one ta pull each other out!
Sure you can hit this trail during the day,98% is a nice Low Traffic area (even the pavement part)you can relax and enjoy a little nature with the family on.
But we set it up for a midnight run-jest fer da fun.
Every cache has a reflector set on the opposite side of the road-an whoa can you fly tru deez if ya go at night!2-3 on the pavement end are on the same side as the cache,they are easy to tell because there is nothing on the other side of the road. It may end up that a cache has more than one reflector eventually, as we will add to them to keep them visible.
Eventually,the trail will take you back out to US 2. We wouldn't recomend running this after a heavy rain,though the puddles are solid,they can get big.
Winter Cachers are gonna want some good boots an a walking stick to trudge da first few feet in soma dem ditches! An the first half will be open to sleds only really.
We have run this trail in a Celica(small sports car)-but we aren't fully sane, and logging trucks can make pretty big rutts.They grate the road often,but you might want a higher clearance car or something with 4x4-and BRING DEET EH! Please practice CITO
We did a couple of run thru's and never used our GPS-and found that a lantern worked best to find the cache,and a headlamp for signing etc. Did we mention it would be a good idea to bring Deet? :)
All trees were marked with a bit of gold or red paint(untill you reach the pavement)so you know you found it-even if its not there,log it but let us know if that happens,and please place it as you found it--rolled neat with a sorbit pack,and remove from hooks with a little bit of grace.
All the caches are camo'd Pill bottles that are just a little skinnier than a film canister. If they are in a more "Open" area,they are farther back to protect against muggling.
If you are timing yourself---Just log your start time on #1,and then your end time on the last.you will save your self time and log space! HAPPY TRAILS eh!
