THE HUNT: This is a multi-stage Geocache hunt…you will begin by visiting one place where you will find a “clue.” This “clue” will lead you through several other challenging excursions in which you will be gathering clues, training and experience in preparation for the conclusion of the hunt.
THE CONCLUSION: CLASSIFIED…this is for you to find out for yourself!
SPECIAL NOTES: This hunt will cover some ground and time—it can be completed in ½ day, or less if you are observant, careful and use good judgment. If you are afraid or unsure of: heights, darkness, various wildlife like spiders, snakes, Raccoons, rodents, birds, bats, bees, getting dirty, wet, cold, scratched/bit by briers/wildlife, bruised, tired, hungry and/or possibly lost—then you should seriously reconsider going on this Geocache hunt. One or more of the above elements WILL happen to you on this hunt. However, if you are comfortable with uncertainty and you thrive for the challenge and don’t mind a bit of discomfort then this is the Geocache hunt for you! If you do decide to take on this challenge, your experience will be one you will always remember. GOOD LUCK!!
You will need a vehicle—2WD is fine.
Good detailed road map of area or maps on GPS.
At least two good flashlights with extra batteries (hands-free headlights are best).
Climbing harness with a short length of GOOD safety rope and at least one carabineer. (if you are in good shape, or experienced climber and not afraid of heights you may not need this item—but we recommend it for safety.)
Old, warm clothes and shoes/boots that you don’t mind getting dirty/wet/torn. (No camouflage please.)
