AS USUAL FOR NIGHT CACHES, THE COORDINATES LISTED ARE NOT THOSE OF THE CACHE
Rather, they are to a convenient parking place along the side of the road and the start of your nighttime adventure. Here, you can relax until it is dark enough to begin the hunt. While this cache might be possible in the daytime, it would be extremely difficult. At night, it should be fairly easy and a lot of fun. The difficulty rating reflects the final area, and the special equipment you need.
For this cache, you need to bring a flashlight. You need a “good” flashlight, not a keyring LED or a single AA-cell Mag-light. If possible, you’d like it to project a beam out to 100 feet, though we’ve tried to place the markers closer together. You should also bring a friend with a flashlight. First, they provide you with a backup light in case yours fails. And second, it is always a good idea to have someone with you at night. They can help scare away any unwanted wildlife that might be out looking for dinner. Ideally, this friend should NOT be able to run as fast as you can.
To Find The Cache: (Please print this part out and bring it with you on the trail, follow the instructions closely) The Hike is a roundtrip total of 1.3 miles.
Start: Begin at the listed coordinates, the starting point of a groomed trail, after it is fully dark, the darker the better. (You can leave your GPSr in the car). Turn on your flashlight and slowly illuminate the surrounding terrain. You are looking for two small silver triangular reflectors very close to the beginning that will mark the onset of your journey.
Middle: Continue to look for additional single small silver triangular reflectors, walk towards them. Repeat the procedure, following the single reflectors along the way.
Cache: You are looking for another PAIR of small silver triangular reflectors like the ones at the beginning, they will mark where to turn onto a smaller trail into the woods where you will continue to follow the reflectors.
End: The cache location is marked with five small silver triangular reflectors.
Return: I have marked the smaller trail with several single reflectors to get back, and another pair of reflectors to let you know where to turn to get back out to the groomed main trail. Once back on the main trail, turn right and continue on down the trail following the reflectors to take you back out to the road. When you reach the road take a left and continue down the paved sidewalk which will take you back to where you started.
There is a lottery ticket for First To Find.
Have fun, but be safe and do not feed the animals.
