Due to the recent severe storm, much of the play area, as well as some of the clues in the story, have been destroyed or greatly damaged. Disabling this cache until the clean-up efforts can be completed and the clues reworked where necessary.
This is the first in what I plan as a series of Wherigo adventures featuring local cachers. In this crusade, your objective is to get to and restore the Kingdom of Playland. You will meet Ol'Fogie, The Wild Thing and Pretty Little Monster along the way, and you may even run into a very wise owl that knows everything about the Earth.
Long ago, Playland was a beautiful place where children played and families had fun. The new king didn't believe in fun and used an evil spell stolen from the realm's wizard to force all of the kingdom's people into slavery. Those that resisted were turned into creatures and forced to live in the wild.
Playland fell into darkness and ruin. But, it is told that there is a secret door at the palace to a room that holds the spell and that a hero will come along some day to open the door and release the spell's power.
Could YOU be that hero?
You should be able to complete the quest in less than an hour. With the exception of the final physical cache location, the path is paved and completely wheelchair accessible and the entire adventure can easily be completed on foot. To download the cartridge, click here or click the related webpage link above. The cartridge has been tested on an Oregon, iPhone and Android phone successfully, but please let me know if you experience any issues.
NOTES: If you seem to come to an impasse, check your inventory. Also, the last zone is across the street from the other zones. Although there is a crosswalk and warning lights to vehicles, it is a busy road at times. Thus, I STRONGLY suggest either driving to the final or keeping all small children, pets and/or Pokemon on a short leash if you decide to walk.
Enjoy, happy hunting and good luck spilling your ink. Cache ya later!

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning and effort to create and place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, the journey or location, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or "copy and paste" logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
Travelbug Etiquette: Cachers pay good money for TravelBugs and Geocoins. If you take a TB or GC from a cache will you PLEASE ensure it is correctly logged in and out. If you take one that still shows it is somewhere else, please be patient before “grabbing” the item; it does not get its mileage by being grabbed before the last person to drop it has had time to log their placement. This is particularly important on busy and new caches. If you have an issue with a bug or coin, please e-mail or message the owner through their profile and advise them of the issue; they will be pleased to hear from you.
