How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the given coordinates. Be prepared for significant changes in elevation.

Topography…what’s that? This cache explores the vertical limit of Sterne’s Woods. The first stage will vividly illustrate the existing water table of the fen. The second stage is only 350 feet away but is over 100 feet UP. A particular tree will leave you smelling pine-fresh and possessing the final coordinates.

All of the coordinates take this form:
N42° 15.###’ W088° 18.###’
A military dog tag at each stage will provide the north decimals over the west decimals for the next stage.

UPDATE: As of 5-28-11 the Vertical Limit is slightly less vertical and much less limited. A third lower tag has been added to the tree that all vertical hikers should be able to read from the ground. Adrenaline junkies are welcome to climb up to the second tag that was placed in 2008 or all the way up to the original tag that was found by Badger Cachers and Rocky is a Very Good Doggie.
