The first is to use the GPS co-ordinates(which have been updated) found in the cache listing. The 2nd way can be found using a compass but you will have to check the spoiler hints to find out. The cache is in an 5 gallon Mr. Sub pickle pail. It hanging about 4 feet in the air from a tree. Contents included as of maintenance done on July 6, 2016:
  • Ducks Unlimited Canada ruler
  • mirror
  • steak knife
  • compass with whistle
  • coil of rope
  • 4 tent pegs
  • waterproof tinder sticks
  • flashlight
  • carabiner
  • sharpening stone
  • bungee cord
  • camp hat
  • 1 Log book with 1 pencil
If you arrive around the time of Canada Day, you may see up to 100 people in the area. This is the Pi-Anue Scout camp and most of the campers know that the cache is in the woods. If you arrive during the camp you will want to ensure that the archery range is NOT in use as you may wander into the area that is down range from where you may end up hiking through while searching. If archery is going on you can find the cache by the back route which can be pointed out to you by the camp staff.
