Geocache Description:

Right within the city of Eau Claire, directly across the river from Eau Claire's fanciest condos and the Country Club, you will find several Hobo Camps. The hobos here have a great view of the river, and have made an amazing complex of fences and shelters out of debris.

Since this is an active hobo camp in the warmer part of the year, you may not want to search this one alone. Also, retrieval of the cache will be easier if you have a partner with you. When I placed the cache in October, the hobos appear to be gone to warmer climates for the year.


I have included waypoints along the way of 2 of the hobo camps, that are right along the best route to the cache. Please dont try to stop on the road closest to the cache, as you will miss seeing the hobo camps, and the walk is not as nice and the parking is not as safe as the parking coords that I have provided.
