Geocache Description:

This is one in a series of six (five eff. 6-26-12) caches in Old School Forest Preserve. The difficulty and terrain ratings apply to the highest of the difficulty and terrain ratings among the six (five eff. 6-26-12) caches.

Despite the overgrowth, only minor bushwhacking is needed. Four are located within 50 feet of the bike trail, one about 120 feet off the trail, and the other (archived 6-26-12) is about 250 feet off the trail.

Over time, most of us cachers have been schooled to read the cache descriptions to help us determine how and where to look for the cache once we reach ground zero. In grade school, we were schooled in the process of elimination to help select the correct answer from a list of possible answers. This series will allow you to put your reading and process of elimination skills to good use.

You will be looking for one of the following containers:
1. Bison Tube
2. Pill Bottle (aka pharmacy style)
3. Mystery container (appropriate for the surrounding area) replaced by bison on 6-26-12
4. Peanut Butter Jar (archived 6-26-12)
5. Aspirin Bottle
6. Preform Tube

These containers are hidden in one of the following
1. Crotch of tree-one cache (two eff. 6-26-12)
2. Fallen log-three caches (two eff. 6-26-12)
3. Tree-two caches (one eff. 6-26-12)

Only the Peanut Butter Jar has room for trading items. BYOP
