How Geocaching Works

Ever wonder who makes those map products you use for geocaching, and how they do it? In this series, you will sample some of the steps yourself.
Lesson #5: Cleanup.
Two things are done to a map before printing: Cleaning up the compiled data, and adding artwork (such as legends, compass roses, insets, titles, and neatlines). In this virtual cache, you will get to view artwork AND clean up.
Sheboygan County is home to the Kohler Company, where some very high-quality potties are produced, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to find that some amazing potties would be found around here. Just follow the coordinates to the front door of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, to see some of the most beautiful restrooms on the planet.
If you don't happen to have both a male and a female in your geocaching party, you can still view all the restrooms. It's customary in this gallery to simply knock loudly before entering the Other Half's privies. Do make sure to look at as many of them as you can find before leaving the gallery.
There is no admission fee for this gallery, and the gallery's web page gives hours and directions.
To verify this find, you must first locate the bear sculpture made out of recycled something. Either describe the materials used, or send me a photo, in an email.
