Geocache Description:


Berna Eli "Barney" Oldfield (June 3, 1878 - October 4, 1946)
was born on a farm just outside of Wauseon, Ohio.
He went on to become this nation's first great automobile racer.
As most of this races were on dirt roads, this series pays homage to him by placing caches around Fulton County only on dirt and stone roads. Enjoy!



Oldfield was “of sturdy but humble farming parentage, in a little loghouse three miles from Wauseon, Fulton County, Ohio.”-Homer C. George.
