Sonoluminous: Laid to rest. Need to say goodbye to one of my favorites to make room for something different. Lost Protykus will be back in another location soon. Thanks to all those who did this series.

Geocache Description:



The Adventure of The Lost Protykus

The Gold Egg #4 

Please refer to: The Adventure of The Lost Protykus - The Secret Trail (GC1GCQG) for a full description of this series. 

To find this cache you will need to find Cache #3:The Adventure of The Lost Protykus - The Silver Egg.  

Once you retrieve the coordinates from the above cache you will be able to find this.  At the correct location you should seek a Tupperware container that contains a log and more information from Kroner to help you find the info micro that will allow you to continue on your quest for Cache #5: The Adventure of The Lost Protykus - Final.   

Once you find the container at stage 1, Kroner’s note will tell you more about the next stage.  

HINT: Kroner had alot of bounce in this area when placing the second stage of this.  Being a nice guy and not wanting to see anyone fail in their quest, he was kind enough to snap a picture of the stage 2 hide object in case you encounter the bounce he had and don't want to get too frustrated...

Please note that despite outward appearances, the second stage of this cache is fragile.  Please be careful with it.  Please replace things EXACTLY the way you found them.  Thanks!!

* *A huge thanks to Lostboy1966 who provided "schooling" for several caches in this series.  I only hope this series is half as good as his are!!* *
