Geocache Description:


"It's not easy being green."

I’m not sure what possessed us to attempt more geoart. We were kicking around ideas and we suddenly thought of Signal. He’s ridden Yukon Cacher’s antenna around the United States. “Why not have Signal visit Idaho,” we said in a fit of brilliance (or maybe madness). I spent almost a month figuring out how to do this. In the end, other than verifying the distance between caches, no math was involved. Let us know what you think.

A four wheel drive or high clearance vehicle is highly recommended for the initial access to these caches. It is intended that you hike to the actual caches as the use of any type of vehicle will tear up the environment and there are no roads or paths.

Please don't head out to this area if it is raining or wet as, at best, you'll tear up the road and, at worst, you'll get stuck. If you're smart, you will only use four wheel drive to get out of the desert if it starts raining or leave before it rains if you do not have a four wheel drive. I'd highly recommend waiting for the snow to melt before trying for this series of caches.

The terrain rating is for the road if it gets wet. The cache series extends over 2 miles out into the desert and you will walk more than 15 miles to get all the caches. This is a serious hike. It took us 14 hours to place the caches over uneven sometimes rocky terrain. Make sure you take plenty water, sunscreen, snacks, and a pen. Small children would not enjoy this hike.

These caches were not intended to contain trade items. We did leave a small unactivated Signal First to Find Geocoin in one of the caches.
