Found it CYBret found Johnson's Bluff Cache

Saturday, August 16, 2003Illinois

4:00 pm

Decided to spend a day out with the family (mainly heading toward Shelbyville to collect on a free pizza from one of RiverExplorer's cards). Saw this cache was pretty close to us so I decided to try for it. I had been by here before but was uncertain of the area. Using my eTrex Legend with its maps made finding the access spot a LOT easier!

Headed back into the woods with my daughter, MehFLY. I brought her along mainly so I could use her hiking stick to knock down spiderwebs . Found the cache after a brief hike. Nice hiding spot and neat little cache. I took the memo pad for my wife and MehFLY took the duck (which we thought was a toucan at first).

I feel bad that we didn't Trash out here. There are a few cans and bottles laying near the cache and I intended to take them out with us, but we got in a hurry and I forgot. If you're coming for this one please bring a bag and haul some of this stuff out.

We were going to try to keep the car by the road and make our way back, but saw some No Trespassing signs. However, on the way back out we found the path from the road. If you want quicker and easier access look for a little path near a field. It'll save you from having to hike some hills.

Not a terribly clear picture, but it's my daughter, MehFLY sitting near the bluff.  Beautiful view today!

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.
