Found it MNpeguy & MNHoffer found USMC MOH: BURNES, JAMES

Saturday, September 07, 2013Wisconsin

I had the morning free to do some geocaching so I decided to come over to western Wisconsin and do the USMC power trail, the Chippewa County 4H Forest caches, and a few other random caches close to the area. It was a hot, sticky day so I wanted to keep the car fairly close to me.
I arrived in the area at about 7:15 and quickly grabbed the caches along Hwy 29. My starting spot for the USMC caches was blocked by a closed bridge so I had to navigate around and get to my starting spot. It was a nice, quiet morning on the roads!
I was able to do the USMC series in about 5 hours - Signed everything I possibly could as there were many wet logs. Quite a few caches had been recently put in by the last cacher so I had many new logs! I dropped in a new container but there are still some missing containers out in the string. A few caches have some iffy coordinates but once you know what you're looking for....
The Chippewa County 4H Forest caches were my exercise for the morning - I spent just under an hour hiking through the forest in search of these 4 caches. Great cords on all 4! The cache on the west was very fun to hike to - a nice, peaceful hiking area.
Grabbed the caches in Colfax right before a little city parade was about to begin!
Thanks to all the COs who have placed caches out in this area - such a nice area to cache in! 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.
