Geocache Description:

 **The cache is not at the posted coordinates**
**DO NOT go there unless you like to play in traffic**

**High Traffic Areas - Use Extreme Stealth**

In honor of the 10th Anniversary of Dave Ulmer's first "stash", hidden on May 3, 2000, I present to you my 50th hide. This one is a twist on the Where Is It?? Series started by TheMachine , and kept alive by Greenback. The primary difference? No creepy clowns, and no evergreens. Oh yeah, and you'll probably have terrible GPS reception at this one!

For some, this will be easier, for others, not so much. The final cache itself is a magnetic bison capsule, as is the "beacon" cache, and both are hidden like I like to hide 'em in the City.

1. Find the object in the picture below (see pic below). That is your starting point, not the intersection of State and Madison.

2. The "beacon" (bison capsule #1) only contains the coordinates to the final, is located about 1 block away from the object (see pic below), and finding it will put you in front of a beautiful Chicago Landmark.

3. Enter coordinates for the final into your GPSr, replace the "beacon" bison capsule where you found it, and head off for your search for the final (hidden just like the beacon).

4. Good luck, and Have Fun!
