Geocache Description:

... but it almost was!

I hid this container earlier this year and was planning a challenge cache. That was when they were really becoming en vogue ;-) and I was thinking of a Skokie Lagoons Challenge (like the Busse Challenge but only a tiny little bit easier ... I don't like the idea anymore - if you want to place one, feel free to do so). But somehow I never got to writing the cache description and at some point The Mosquito appeared. The original hiding spot was west to the biker's hill and hence it would have violated the proximity rule.

When I was out caching today I decided to collect the container and find a new hiding spot for it: Here you go. A simple traditional - caching fun for everyone!

The log sheet was signed by a muggle while the cache was out there but that doesn't count.
The FTF is still available!

You are looking for a regular sized lock'n'lock container.
The cache is NOT in the water.

This cache was the "Cache of the Show" in episode #57 of the Chicago Geocacher Podcast!
Thank you guys!!
