Baloo's Run. Chickens Rabbits Sticks and Stones
Baloo was the finest dog a boy could ever ask for. Hard to describe his breed, a sort of English Setter cross Springer, but what he lacked in pedigree he more than made up with loyalty, energy and character. Just mention any of the words, Chickens, Rabbits, Sticks or Stones and it would send him into hyper. So these caches are in memory of him.
The Baloo's Run caches are placed on a circular walk in the halamanning area Baloo and I played in the mid to late 80's. I couldn't guess the amount of times we went around this walk. Many times he'd just head off on his own. Coincidentally there was also a definite population boom of Black and White dogs within a 3 mile radius so I suspect his spirit well and truly lives on.
The Idea of these caches is to find Baloo's Stone. Baloo would never have given up his stone easy so in order for you to find it you'll first need his Chickens Rabbits and Sticks. Written In The Lid and on the first page of each log is part of the coordinates to find Baloos stone.
Each cache can be logged individually for those who like the numbers, however the First to find prize is reserved for the one who finds the stone. Don't forget to bring a pen and paper to note down each part.
This should be a hit with those canine cachers as with the exception of the rare tractor the walk is traffic free.
As an incentive to those lucky few who find Baloo's stone first they will find inside their choice of;
Sew on Official Geocaching Patch
Ready made Key-safe Geocache
Un-Activated Travel Bug Tags
Or A Magnetic Nano Geocache
Recommended Parking is at;
N 50° 07.730
W 005° 24.690
It can get a bit muddy at the bottom end of the walk after rain so good boots are recommended. I'd say it shouldn't take more than 1 1/2 hours to finish so keep that in mind on showery days.
We Hope you all enjoy these caches.
