Found it redwingrr found Portage Canal IAT

Friday, October 12, 2012Wisconsin

When Hearty Soles, Lacknothing and I were planning a trip to Devil's Lake, we noticed this IAT cache right along our route. Lacknothing had quizzed us in the car earlier, asking us which 2 rivers were connected by this canal. Having not done any research yet, I could only come up with one. Now I've seen the canal, read the signs, visited Wikipedia and a couple other websites on this subject. Very interesting. There are some old photos of the canal at www.wisconsinhistory.org/
On top of that, we're all attempting to complete the IAT - Half Trail Challenge and this cache gives us Columbia Co. So there were lots of smiles at GZ.
Lacknothing found it in the blink of an eye.
TFTC!

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.
