The Wizard welcomes you to the Land of OC! Come and journey along this mystical, enchanted trail through the glades of Oconto County. Revisit Dorothy and Toto and some of the other endearing characters of your childhood. Most of the caches in this series are easy to moderate in difficulty and the terrain is level. Do beware though. There are challenges ahead. If you remember the story line, there is at least one “evil monkey.” But a great reward awaits you at the end where the Wizard’s treasure is to be found.
Your path will lead you down a “rails to trails” adventure that is open to hiking, biking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling. Please map it out and note that it is NOT a loop. Plan accordingly. Remember to bring water and insect repellent during the summer season. Use discretion during the deer gun season. The Wizard hopes that you enjoy some of the unique and interesting caches that have been laid out for you. Every attempt has been made to make them winter friendly. Have a safe and wonderful journey.
The container is a small lock-n-lock. But beware. It is hidden in a remnant of her past and, although the wicked witch has melted, great evil resides here. Remember to replace the cache exactly where you found it and hide it better than you found it. Failure to do so may result in dire consequences. The wizard discovered a severed finger, undoubtedly from some unfortunate geocacher who did not heed the warning.
