Geocache Description:

The ToobInATree series is an addition to the Howell Campground GeoCaching Primer (HCGCP) caches, and can be found on the grass hiking trail adjacent to the campground starting at HCGCP #5 GC2EDF7. Alternate parking to start at #1 is next to the paved Volksweg bike trail (see additional waypoint). From here this whole series is in fairly level ground. You can also start the series with #4 over by Howell's Stationary Castle GC19E17, with a steeper start.

Coordinates in the woods are difficult, but I tried my best to get good averages. To help you out, here are some tips:

  • All of the caches are in/on mature, established trees. NO honeysuckle bush micros!
  • Most of the caches are within 30 feet of the hiking trail; 4 and 5 are 100+ feet away but across grass.
  • All but 1 and 4 are above flood level (most years!)

Starting out, each container is unique in the set. I've had trouble keeping the campground caches from walking off, but we'll see how the ones in the woods fare. The containers may change as they need to be replaced, but the names reflect the originals.
