Geocache Description:


You should fully read the following before beginning your NIGHT-TIME Adventure.

Yes, this is the area’s first, that I am aware of, NIGHT ONLY cache and is not recommended for the faint-of-heart. It is not findable in the daylight. The posted coordinates will take you to a place, a place where creatures both day and night roam freely. The cache is located on state game lands so please obey the rules with wearing orange during hunting season. Beyond the normal attire, you will need the following: A very good flashlight, the attached map, and a normal compass. You should also translate the name of this cache as it is a Celtic Warning to you.

Your adventure will start by parking at the posted coordinates. From here, you venture into the groves of trees under the blue veil of the night. Creatures will be watching you and your every move. The moons light will cause shadows of the trees to appear and disappear which will unease your strongest will to continue.

Your quest is to find the cache, which is resting at the end of an Illuminated Path. The Illuminated Path will only be visible at night by the light of your flashlight. To find the Illuminated Path, you will need 2 sets of coordinates. The first set will get you a point on a trail to reduce bushwhacking and the second set will get you to the start of the Illuminated Path. However, you must first locate 6 medallions with numbers to complete the 2 needed coordinate sets.



“Trail Point”: N40-33.ABC / W078-28.DEF

Start of “Illuminated Path”: N40-33.ABC / W078-28.DEF



The Map


About the Map

Attached is a map that will be required for your search. The map marks 6 diamonds, coordinates to each diamond, and a bearing. Each diamond will be the location to start your search for a medallion. All the diamond coordinates are taken from the center of the trail on the map. Once you get to a chosen diamond location, use a compass to align yourself with the noted magnetic north bearing. Begin walking in that general bearing direction shining your flashlight all around until the medallion is found. All the medallions are hanging on trees and within 120 paces or so, some near and some far, of the trail.

About the Medallions

Each of the 6 medallions: A, B, C, D, E, and F, will contain two digits. Once you have located a medallion, flip it up to reveal a letter, and two numbers. The letter represents the number’s position in the two needed coordinate sets. The first number below the letter is for the “Trail Point” coordinate set and the second number below the letter is for the “Illuminated Path” coordinate set.

Final Cache Location

As you venture down the Illuminated Path, you will be looking for a tree with 3 “illuminators”. Once at this tree, look carefully for the ammo box.

Some final thoughts....... Good Luck!
