Geocache Description:

At the posted coordinates, there is a simple kid-friendly field puzzle. The final is a camo-covered plastic container located about 1.2 miles west of the posted coordinates. Some bushwhacking is required.

The Muppet Show, a half-hour long musical comedy variety show, aired on TV from 1976-1981. The action in each episode included onstage acts and frantic backstage activity among emcee Kermit the Frog, his Muppet friends and a live celebrity. The creation of puppeteer Jim Henson, The Muppet Show introduced us to many endearing characters, many of whom are being celebrated with caches in and around the Whitnall Park/Root River Parkway area.



Robin is Kermit the Frog’s nephew. When he’s not camping with the Frog Scouts, Robin likes to hang around with his Uncle Kermit at the show. In one of his most memorable Muppet Show appearances, Robin sings “Halfway up the Stairs,” a song based on a poem by Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne. Check it out by clicking Here.

There is no physical container at the given coordinates. Instead, you will find a playground where you are invited to post a picture of your Geocaching team sitting "half-way up the stairs." The cache is located at:

N 42 56.ABC, W 088 02.DEF.

First, find a row of metal triangles suspended about six feet in the air and count them.

A = the first digit.
B = the second digit.
C = The two digits added together.


D = The number of yellow numbered cylinders you see both high and low minus three.
E = Read the welcome sign. Adult supervision is required for children under “X” years old. E = X + 1.
F= The number of swings.

Permission to place this cache has been granted by Brian Russart, Milwaukee County Parks Natural Areas Coordinator. Please respect park hours when seeking this cache.
