Found it sandlanders found Dry Creek - WARCS

Tuesday, February 04, 2014Wisconsin

We had been in Wisconsin Rapids earlier today, and we wandered our way back home to see how bad the drifting was in the wide open spaces of northeastern Adams County. In many spots the roads have been plowed and then have had the top levels cut back even further. Where there are large stretches of open fields, plows have cut parallel rows in the fields as a form of snow fence to keep more of the snow from drifting on to the north-south roads. That being said, we really didn't want to wander too many of the back roads to get from place to place like we may have done in the summer or fall, so we took Highway C east from Highway G to look for this cache to the north and then the next cache to the south.

Dry Creek looked dry today, and we agree with jar42 that it's really a snowmobile trail right now. The tracks of the snow machines made getting to GZ a lot easier than we have found in other places, but the hide here was kind of tricky. Came up with the cache, though, then turned the car around to get the cache south of C.

Our maps show Dry Creek continuing quite a distance west from here, traveling as an agricultural ditch in spots, and wandering through the northern edge of Colburn swamp. The Dry Creek on our maps enters Big Roche-A-Cri Creek a couple of miles east of Rabbit Rock on Highway 13. Maybe we should do an Adams ARCS series to check this out a bit more... ... but it wouldn't be as good as your WARCS series, geolivestrong. We love these caches!

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
