Geocache Description:

This is a small Altoids metal box and might be wheel chair accessable if theres no mud or piles of snow.

This cache is located on the corner of two gravel roads that is surrounded by wind turbines.  How many can you count?  When I first placed this cache at the original location the corn was tall, so I could only see a few turbines. As I exited the ditch I saw more and if I stood on the tailgate of my truck I could see even more! So whats the deal with the wind turbines? Almost everywhere you look, wind turbines. Wind Facts: Iowa has 3,198 wind turbines (as of June 2014) with 100 wind projects on line and producing energy. Iowa's wind power installations avoid over 8.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide annaully. This equates to taking 1,550,000 cars off the road. The water consumption savings from wind projects in Iowa total more than 3.2 billion gallons per year. For more wind energy facts go to www.iowawindenergy.org BYOP and the difficulty during the winter months depends on the snow.  Be safe and have fun.   Ditch diving is no longer required! Should be a quick P&G or cache and dash as they say out west.
