Suggested parking is at 45 27.351 91 15.974 next to the picnic shelter. From this spot, all the open land north to the railroad track and east to the Chippewa River is the property of the village of Bruce. It is slowly being developed as an environmental study and recreation area. There are a variety of trails crisscrossing the park already, ranging from wide ATV trails to those barely visible. To find the cache coordinates, do the following.
1. Identify the object at the given coordinates by its function. What did it do? Hint: it is a 6 letter word.
2. Give each letter in the objects name a number: A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, J=10, K=11, L=12, M=13, N=14, O=15, P=16, Q=17, R=18, S=19, T=20, U=21, V=22, W=23, X=24, Y=25, Z=26
3.Substitute each letter in the objects name with it's number in the alphabet.
A = the last letter of the word
B = the last letter of the word divided by 2
C = the third letter of the word divided by 3
4. The cache is hidden at N45 27.CCB W091 15.ABB
The adventure here is solving the puzzle and then finding the best trail to the cache. Have fun!
OK, our clue object has been destroyed by somebody's idea of progress!
There was an old railroad siding here that was being overtaken by nature with a neat old switch at the given coordinates. It was a very scenic and historic encounter that no one will ever experience again. The 6 letter word is "SWITCH", and now you can go directly to the cache without the thrill of the hunt. Our philosophy is that "The journey is more important than the destination, but this journey has been sabotaged by a lack of respect for historical objects.
If you like walking, it's possible to get to our Chippewa Riverwalk cache from here.
