We have had a tradition of finding several of our next hundred milestones by finding a cache in a far away exotic place. Today Ishpemming was both as we found # 1100.
Both of our kids have lived in Ishpemming / Negaunee / Marquette for about 8 years. We enjoy coming up here, and always try to hunt some caches. This area is home to some terrific ones, Marquette County sets a good example for the rest of the geo-world with high quality caches.
Our car GPS 'Ruth' brought us to the right place this aft. No place to park in the snowed-in alley, so Gram and Jakester hopped out, Beckster and Grandpa figured we'd go around the block. But the traction control kicked in and the Prius refused to go us the hill. We backed down to make a run at it, but the other two already had the cache in hand and were signing the log. We stopped, they got in, and off we went celebrating another milestone.
The lid for the container is still missing, but the contents are OK wrapped up in a WalMart plastic bag. That won't last long tho, the CO needs to take care of this pretty soon.
