How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is placed on our Dad's farm land, so no need to worry about traipsing over private property. Though he recently passed away in 2/08, whenever he noticed you out there, he said, "Must be more of Lance's people." We were contemplating purchasing some of this land sometime in 2009, but instead we bought a home in town.
This cache is not winter friendly if lots of snow, all waypoints except WP1 are on the ground. Also, the walk would be easier earlier in the season before the grasses/weeds/corn get too tall.
We warn you - This quest is not for the cowardly or for those who sit on silk cushions wanting to be fed chocolate and strawberries. Only the valiant should sign up for the cause. Those who choose to undertake this crusade may choose to do it in the spring or fall to lessen the perils.
This quest of Camelot is a four stage multi-cache. It is fairly close to the Camelot Days Inn, so if you need to trade some travel bugs while you're in the neighbourhood the journey shouldn't be difficult.
Stage One you may be familiar with as it used to be a part of the old Days Inn Cache before renovations. You will find new coordinates hidden there.
Stage Two holds the remains of two valiant knights that have fallen while partaking of this quest. While you may need to investigate their tombs, please return all as found as you leave.
Stage Three is guarded by a changeling. He is truly a fierce warrior, but to fool enemies Merlin cast a spell on him to make him seem innocuous. The cairn he guards is quite important as it marks the spot - the very spot - where Lancelot and Guinevere's remnants of a castle can be found. Beware of the changeling. If he perceives any ill will from you, in the blink of an eye you will be facing an armoured knight on a destrier, sword in hand ready for battle.
At the final coordinates, you are free to drink of the vine as you celebrate the end of your quest.
A puzzle piece needed to locate Merlin's Major Feat can be found in this cache. Please leave puzzle piece here for others to find. Only Lady Catherine's head is permitted to float about the kingdom.
