Geocache Description:

** The listed coordinates are for the parking area **

You will have a .4mile hike along the shore of beautiful Lake Wazeecha in South Wood County Park. Along the way, take the opportunity to pause for a rest at the park bench and enjoy a wonderful view of the lake.

To find this cache, you will need to combine your regular geocaching technique with the orienteering technique of intersection. As a result, you may find it very helpful to bring a compass. And while it is possible to locate stage-one on your own, you may find it easier if you have a partner come with you to assist.

Listed below are the coordinates for two separate waypoints that you need to find to be able to locate the first-stage cache. Each is the location of a specific tree in the woods. You will recognize the correct trees by looking for the heads of two nails that have been hammered into the trunk of each tree at eye level. The heads are about 3/8" in diameter; both are painted fluorescent hot pink.

Once you have located both trees you will need to project a vector from each tree in the direction specified. (This is where the compass may come in handy.) The point in the woods where those two projected vectors intersect is the location of a small brown pill bottle, wrapped in camoflage tape, that is the stage-one cache of this two-part multi-cache. (Locating where the vectors intersect is why a partner may come in handy.)

Inside the micro-cache you will find the coordinates for the second stage, which is a traditional cache – a ½ gallon clear Rubbermaid container.

Waypoint One is at N44 21.822', W089 43.669'. The vector (bearing) from there to stage one is 254 degrees.

Waypoint Two is at N44 21.799', W089 43.688'. The vector (bearing) from there to stage one is 288 degrees.
