Geocache Description:

A rambunctious camoflaged tupperware , giving little indication of it's inner beauty and charm ...

This is the Third of four in a series – the object is to figure the coordinates for the fifth and final cache below by substituting a number , found inside the first four caches , for a given letter , as such :

Ryan’s Treasure Chest -- N. 42* 54.5(A)(B) W.087* 58.1(C)(D)

Cache 1 : Kyle’s Krazy Krock of Kitsch
N. 42* 54.508 W. 087* 58.239
A = ?

Cache 2: Nya’s Mystical Wonders
N. 42* 54.247 W. 087* 58.204
B = ?

Cache 3: Esme’s Extravaganza
N. 42* 54.249 W. 087* 57.949
C = ?

Cache 4: Christopher’s Mess Kit
N. 42* 54.501 W. 087* 57.906
D = ?

These five caches are named after Great-nieces and nephews of mine , and each have their own Geo-cache webpage .

This cache is named after ESME , younger sister to Nya ,who , in my estimation , should win the ‘spunky young lass‘ award for Wisconsin this year …Smart as a whip and quick to throw a snowball at your backside, she suffers No Fools – undoubtedly barely tolerating my use of ‘lass’ ( it’s a Scottish term of endearment , Esme !)

Esme expects anybody trading goodies in this cache to keep the ‘wild and extravagant’ level of quality ‘up to snuff’ and worthy of her standards of approval .
And they are High .

This entire series resides within the Victory Creek Special Park in the city of Franklin ,
an undeveloped area park ( no facilities ), that does , however , have a system of cut-grass pathways maintained within it,ROUGHLY CONNECTING ALL CACHES . About 84 acres in size , it is largly open prairie , reverting to that state from earlier farmland , with some scattered woodlots , bordered on the south by Victory Creek itself , and on the west by Pleasantview school grounds and the future Pleasantview city park . I’ve hiked & mountain-biked this place for a while, and it’s a rural ‘hidden’ gem in the city , home to racoon,deer,coyote, Sandhill crane and , now , the occasional lucky Geo-cacher ….Take good care of our park & Enjoy !

Another parking and access point is at the southeast corner of this Special park at the intersection of Victory Creek drive and Bridge view drive –the city owns an undeveloped lot between the fire hyrant and the pond .. follow your nose north and then west around the pond to an old farmer’s bridge traversing Victory Creek .

NEW for 2014 ...A paved pathway between the 2 parking areas !
