Geocache Description:

This great cache was thought out and placed by rcharlier. He needed some help with this cache since he cannot properly maintain it and I gladly volunteered to take co-ownership of this well-known cache.

Several years ago, I found a portion of a journal in an old trunk. I have attempted to decipher the journal many times without success. I have attached pages of the journal in an attempt to finally solve the century old mystery.

Photobucket Photobucket PhotobucketAuthors note: Do not attempt to solve this unless you are very prepared and in good physical condition. I recommend you take the necessary supplies for a daylong adventure. This should include paper, pencil, water, a lunch and patience. You should also record your starting coordinates before starting your search. I do not want to see anyone stuck in the woods overnight. Also, please obey all no trespassing signs. The park ranger has been very clear these have been placed for a reason, to control environmental impact in several areas. One portion of this cache is near one of these controlled areas. Please use good judgement.

In order to keep this a level 5 cache, I request no spoilers be placed into log enteries.
