Geocache Description:

This series combines our love of caching with our keen awareness of Illinois politics! As you follow along you will be in the neighborhood where our own “Accidental Governor” lives. We won’t take you to his residence as the security detail might not like that. We will take you to places that he may visit.

Patrick Joseph Quinn III is the 41st Governor of Illinois. He was sworn into office on January 29, 2009, after his predecessor was impeached by the Illinois House and convicted by the Illinois Senate.

This is a location the Accidental governor might visit to watch America’s past-time … and wish he had continued the track and field career he began in high school.

Stealth is necessary in this urban setting. Please bring your own writing utensil!
