Owner Maintenance TeamSeekAndWeShallFind performed maintenance for jUnK iN mY TrUnK *a photo puzzle cache*

Wednesday, August 28, 2013Illinois

We have recently become aware that this cache was mentioned on a podcast as the 'Cache of the Podcast.' We do not listen to podcasts and don't know what it means or what it is but what we do know is, this mention has brought an unusual amount of attention to our cache which is fine BUT, some of it is not positive.

What's happening is, cachers are targeting this cache and in turn, totally disrespecting the land it's on and the other caches here by ILLEGALLY parking on Corron Road and cutting into the woods to GZ. We saw a very well defined geotrail that leads from the roadside right to GZ. After getting this cache, the thought process is....why not grab the other caches here that I can get to from the road. In doing that, cachers are moving and parking up and down the road and climbing up and over the Corron's fence looking for our caches. This is drawing negative attention from the locals. Eventually, someone is going to call the police.

This cache is on historic land owned by the Corron family. The Corrons are a very well known, very prominent and very respected family here in Campton Hills. They are amongst the first few families who settled here. They have graciously welcomed us and allowed us to place 21 caches on their property and in doing so, they have opened up their home and their land to you and the game you play. They did not have to do that! I think allowing 21 caches on their land is EXTREMELY GRACIOUS!

DO NOT make the Corrons regret their decision to allow you to enjoy Geocaching on their property by illegally parking on the street and cutting in to grab as many caches as you can.

THIS IS NOT A PNG!!

THE 'Historic Corron Farm' series is not PNGs!

Should this illegal and disrespectful behavior continue, we will pull and archive the entire series. We would rather do that than cause the Corron family any grief. If they found out what was going on we would be totally embarrassed.

PLEASE do as we ask and DO NOT PARK ON THE STREET! Park in the parking lot that was created for public use and get the caches by walking the mowed trails.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation,
TeamSeek

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
