Geocache Description:

Lets get back to basics here.

This cache is hidden in a secluded area that has public hunting and fishing.  I have hidden all types of hides in my few years of caching.  After talking to respected area cachers I have decided it is time for a basic cache.  If you look up the first cache, you will see that it was a pail that was hidden in the remote area of a forest. 


This cache is meant to be found.  It is not a tricky go here and do this then go there and look for that.  You will drive on a gravel road and park.  There is some what of a path going down to the creek.  You have to cross the creek to get to the cache.  The day that I placed it the rain was coming down and the creek was up a bit.  I found that if you walk up stream for a bit the creek does narrow up.  The place that I crossed had a large rock that I was able to step on to get across. 

After you cross the creek you should be at about 890 feet of elevation.  Looking ahead you can see a large hill.  I was able to climb up the hill in tennis shoes.  Follow the arrow at this point as there are just a few deer trails that wonder about the hill side.  As I got close to GZ I noticed a rock outcropping that I thought would be a good place to hide it.  I climbed above that and found that there were several rocks that would make great hiding places.  Once I reached 1050 feet of elevation I found the perfect spot.  The cache is placed under a rock with another rock covering it up to help hide it from muggles.  This is a ground hide and is a 30 cal ammo can so in the winter months it may be harder to find. 

This cache page will not be all dressed up with lots of bells and pictures.  My thought and concept is to step back and hide a ammo can that is meant to be found.  You will be presented with some great views of the valley below.  There is wild life in the area.  Deer droppings were every where on the way up.  The stream that you cross is a great trout fishing stream and is subject to WIDNR regulations.  Please enjoy the cache and post photos of your find and views if you would like. 

This cach is placed on land that is owned and mananged by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.  Any cache that is placed on lands owned and or managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources requires that a notification for be files with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.  Here is a link to the web site to download the form http://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/forms/2500/2500-118.pdf 

As with all Geocaches please rehide as found.  Please respect the area that you are in.
