About the cache:

   While traveling to Saint Louis for a family vacation this pass August I stopped to do Funk's Grove Rest Area Travel Bug Resort. Once I found that cache I knew I had to bring that idea to this location that I've been eyeing whenever we come up here camping as a possible spot to hide an ammo can. This cache will be accessible at all times but if caching in the evening a flashlight would be a good idea. The cache is located adjacent to an atv and snowmobile trail so expect traffic from them going pass as you search. A state forest campground is just up the road a short distance with a gas station in town. Not quite a rest area, but pretty close to it with plenty of room to park off the side of the road so make sure you park as to not obstruct traffic either on the road or on the trails. Millston seems to have been a little stop along the way for many years, first with the railroad and now the interstate, but if you take the time to pause you will find the area has the northwoods feel just off the beaten path. In fact, at times while camping nearby here I have heard wolves howling and crossed paths with bear tracks. So to me this is the northwoods close to home. If you explore the area, I hope you agree with me.

    History: 

  In Millston the Union Pacific, and the Chicago Northwestern prior have a rail line that preceded the route of I-94 passing through Wisconsin., the line was known as the Omaha Line and was a major line to the Twin Cities and Chicago. At one time the North Western's most famous train was the "400" from Chicago to Minneapolis/St. Paul that was introduced in 1935. This train was named the "400" because it traveled the 400 miles (640 km) between the cities in 400 minutes. In 1939 the "400" was modernized with new diesel locomotives and streamlined cars. The first "400" was later renamed the "Twin Cities 400" and CNW labeled most of its other passenger trains with variations of the "400" name. CNW stopped running the Twin Cities 400 in 1963, and all CNW intercity passenger service ended with the formation of Amtrak in 1971. Currently, the Union Pacific runs freights along the line.
