Geocache Description:

I have submerged a regular size Tupperware container in the front of an underwater school bus I used the Geocaching rating system which gave the cache an automatic 5 for terrain and difficulty just due to the fact that specialized equipment was needed. Assuming that you can scuba it should be an easy find and the difficulty would be a 2 at the most

The Cache is a regular Tupperware container 8x 3.5 inches that is filled with water (but still floats)   You can open the container underwater and sign an underwater dive slate which I am using as a log.
Park Admission is six dollars on the weekend and parking is available directly at the cache site
 

Here are a couple of photos of the general cache locaton
 

 

From the posted GPS Coordinates enter the water which will put you to the left of the bus
Descend to the bottom (about 20 feet) and turn right and the bus will be about 15 feet away
It is best to do it this way as the visibility can be near zero at times although when I hid it I had at least 10-15

Trout Lake was a working quarry from 1928 to 1937 when it flooded   Later turned into a recreational facility it offers  camping, fishing swimming and scuba

I am embarassed to admit that I have spent a week of my life  underwater here and the quarry has sunk a couple of buses, fuselages of a cessna and Harvard Trainer as well as a few cars and boats
