Last week, I found nine of Hunger Games Series. Today, Mr/Mrs cbiij and I planned to meet up to find as many as we could. After sending off Hubby and his friend to go deer hunting at 5am, I slept in so got a late start while cbiij racked up all but six!
After reading past logs, I wondered if this cache had been muggled, so we PAF and the CO wondering if this cache was still in place. CO was in Rhinelander, and would swing by and check on it soon. This cache is the furthest from any other cache, so we were chomping at the bit. In the meantime, together we nabbed five (actually cbiij found them and I just signed each log) and we went on to the next one. I have six to go and cbiijs have just this one before solving the Final four puzzle caches for this Series.
The CO texted that indeed "Clove" cache was in place. Dang, we were on the west side of the Wisconsin River finding "Gale Hawthorne" cache, so we begged CO and Wendy to stay there and wait for us to drive the 14 miles to come back and FIND "Clove" (BTW, CO said this type of hide is a nod of appreciation to one of my own hides, aw...). Since cbiijs found the last five (wow, they are good!), I was determined to find "Clove".
After friendly greetings, DeitzD and Wendy watched as we three stumbled around with our GPSunits, several feet from GZ. Finally, I slowed way down and just looked up and down the beacon. DOH, there it was, a tricky bugger I must say! We three signed the log, I dropped 5 TB's and Coins for cbiij to pick up, we noted the Clues, hid cache again, and posed for a 14th-TO-FIND group photo and dance.
After we heard the last of gunshots in the distance, marking the end of the first day of Wisconsin Deer Opener, we said our goodbyes, and split off in three different directions home. I'll have to return in daylight to find my last 5, then attempt to solve the 4 puzzles. Thanks so much for this fun series.
