Found it raslas found Perrot's Island #2

Saturday, January 26, 2013Wisconsin

All I can say is wow! Perrot Island 2 and Perrot Island 1 have to be the scariest caches we have ever attempted. Yesterday we saw that Oma and Opa had walked across the hard water to these caches. We parked in the nearby parking area and proceeded to the hard water. We "tested" the ice and it seemed ok so off we went. We got over by the support for the old bridge and the ice was so clear we could see a bug crawling under the ice. That was kinda cool. We continued on and went under the railroad bridge. We can hear the water gurgling under the ice and can hear the ice cracking. This is REAL eerie. We get just a little ways past the bridge and the ice gives a really loud crack. My initial reaction was to run for shore but we stopped and looked at each other trying to decide what to do. Roger said there was no way he was walking across that ice. It's about .35 to the island. I decided to go on alone while Roger watched from the safety of the shore. I proceeded slowly with caution listening to the gurgling and cracking all the way. I got a little more than half way there and the ice cracked REALLY bad-I could have sworn I felt it crack. Decision time-do I forge ahead or go back?? I decided to continue my journey-probably not one of my smartest decisions but none the less the decision has been made so off I go. After what seemed like an enternity I reached the shore. Climbed up the bank and found the cache without any problems. Signed log and replaced as found then bushwacked my way to Perrot Island 1 after which I took the short but yet very long hike back to the shore on the other side.

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.
