LITTLE LADY'S LETTERBOX (Hybrid)


This is our first letterbox hybrid cache. It is named in honor of "The Mrs" (as referred to in various logs of gvsu4msu). In our geocaching adventures  we have found a couple of these  and enjoyed the change in pace from a typical geocache,so we decided to place one. We hope that you enjoy this change of pace as much as we do. We hope that you enjoy walking through Rush Creek Park in Hudsonville as well. There are some other caches in this park, so make sure to check them out and make a day of your caching adventures. There is also plenty of play equipment for the kids.

In the spirit of letterboxing we don't give you the coordinates to the cache but instead a series of clues or directions to find it. You don't need to have a personal stamp & personal log book to seek this cache, but to stay with the intent of letterboxing a personal stamp would be nice. You can get a stamp of your own at most hobby stores, they aren't very expensive. Please don't take the stamp or pad from the cache. It is meant to stay there. Thanks.

FTF Prize is a $10 Gift Card for a local craft store.
You could use it to buy the supplies to set up your very own letterbox (hybrid) cache.

Here are the directions that you must follow to find our Letterbox (Hybrid) cache.

Start at the posted coordinates above. Turn and face the Tennis Courts (updated 9-11-2008) and walk towards the lone basketball hoop. From there turn so your back is to the front of the park. Follow the paved path counting off 53 posts. Upon reaching the 53rd post, you will enter on to a footpath thet leads off into the South-Easterly direction. (in the winter, bear towards the two pine trees on your left). Travel on the footpath down the "valley" and across the foot bridge and continue until you reach the chain-link fence. Once at the fence, follow the path along the fenceline (or follow the fence in the winter) south. At the end of the fence, look for the tallest (skinny-trunked) tree in the Southern (slightly East)horizon. Walk to that tree. From there take 25 paces parallel along the cornfield in the Western direction. (there is a small trunked tree at 15 paces). You will come across a worn path/gap inthe brush. Enter there and proceed to where the giant tree has split. From there look back toward the entrance of the path and look for a fallen mossy log that was once part of the tree. Cache will be located underneath.

Once the cache is found, you can stamp your personal logbook with the stamp in the cache (please place back in cache when done) and stamp our logbook with your stamp. If you do not have a stamp, feel free to draw something for us to enjoy or sign your name.

Please replace stamp and logbook into their respective ziploc bags to prevent the ink on the stamp from ruining the logbook. Some napkins are provided in case it gets messy.


Please rehide well using the natural cammoflauge and the log itself.

We hope that you enjoy doing our first Letterbox (hybrid) cache.

As always, thanks for doing another GVSU4MSUcache.

Congratulations to DOROALRY on the First To Find
(will he follow those "directions" too?)
