Found it Vegas Gamblers found Delafield Bike & Hike

Monday, September 04, 2006Wisconsin

Ok, so here I am sitting at the computer after a rainy Labor Day and I check the forums at 8:30 P.M. and don't see an update to "The Geocoin Fairy". Check some things, post some things in the forums. My wife starts her workout. Around 9:30 P.M. I recheck for updates and low and behold there it is! TGF has visited the State of Wisconsin, on a rainy, cold day. As I'm starting to get my shoes on I check the rechargeable flashlight, dead battery. Check the second flashlight and it works. We leave the house, my wife still sweaty from her workout and we begin to drive the twenty some miles to the cache. We arrive under cloudy skies and begin the trek down the bike path (this is our first ever night time cache). So with me leading the bushwacking, I of course take us in the wrong direction (as usual). Once I (we) got our bearings we were with in one foot of the cache. With one flashlight between us we took turns searching and found nothing. So here we are in the middle of bushes and trees, damp from the rains and naturally the flashlight begins to die. Now the search is a quick flash of the light on and quickly off to save as much battery power as we could. With me on the path, my wife searching the bushes and trees and the flashlight almost dead she says the three most beautiful words in geocaching....I found it (at 10:10 P.M.). We open the cache and there it was--TGF geocoin. The trek back to the bike path had to be done in complete darkness due to the fact the flashlight was now dead. Left an unactivated Contry Guy geocoin for the next finder.

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.
