Geocache Description:

This is one of my first geocaches. It's a camouflaged waterproof match container hanging in a small tree.


BEWARE OF NETTLES! IF YOU FIND A FILM CAN, PLEASE LOOK FOR A WATERPROOF MATCH CONTAINER NEARBY. THAT IS THE REPLACEMENT CACHE.

Park in the small gravel area near the corner of Oregon and S. Main St. Turn left onto the bike trail then turn right onto the dirt trail by the bench located at 42:30.20N by 092:26.89W.

NOTE: You may find the original cache container as well as the new one. I believe the old one was a film can. The new one is a little container with a snap on lid. If you find both, please put the film can with the other container.

On the way through this area I dropped my cell phone accidentally! Using my GPS receiver I backtracked and after having my son call it numerous times we finally heard it go off.

This cache is the third (and hardest) in a triad of microcaches. Each of the triads gets harder to find. Here’s a picture of the approximate location of the three on an aerial photo.

You will have to cross Dry Run Creek to get to this one. Be prepared to get your feet wet. Watch for barb wire in the weeds and protect your eyes as you make your way through the small trees. I discovered a den hidden by the tall grass, twice!

Good luck. Don’t get your eyes poked!
