Found it sandlanders found The Most Famous Reindeer of All?

Tuesday, December 18, 2012Wisconsin

What better time to look for this cache than one week before Christmas? Had a milestone coming up, too, and this hide fit the bill perfectly for some memorable holiday fun. Parked in the lot not far from where the little deers used to play, then had a chilly walk to the cache area. Went in too soon and got caught on some snags, but it wasn't long before we were at the cache area. Didn't spot the container right away, so we checked out a few other spots, but a different angle gave us a glimpse of what we were looking for, and after a few pokes to release it from a frozen spot, we had the cache in hand.

Took a few pics, then opened the frozen lid to see all of the goodies inside. This container is packed! Left a Christmas ornament and took a rubber duckie. Discovered the "Peace" TB, too, but left it for another cacher. Even with all of the snow coming, this will still be findable if you work for it a bit, so while the season is still upon us, this would be a fun cache to try.

After we got back to the car, we headed to the Rudolph post office to send off a few Christmas cards with the special "Rudolph" cancelation on them. Had a nice chat with the lady behind the counter there, and we watched her crank the cards through the old time cancelation machine that they pull out every year for this special service that they provide. We have never done this before, and thanks to your cache here, TJSAAVEDRA, we were able add to our holiday memories and to find a milestone cache (#2300) in Rudolph. And the noon siren went off while we were in town, too! Great time here... Thanks!

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.
