Geocache Description:

You and your ecleptic band of friends are about to lose thier homes and it's one last adventure to find One-Eyed Willie's treasure ship. The only problem is the Fratelli gang is on your heels and they will stop at nothing to stop you from claiming the prize.

"Goonies never say die!"

Parking is by posted coordinates, please do not park at the school nearby.

This adventure takes up most of Goose Lake Park in Roselle.  I tried to stay somewhat true to the movie and hopefully this will bring back some of the memorable moments that you might remember.  First off, this is NOT my typical wherigo. The following pictures below which includes the "Landmark Key", "Skull Key-aka copper bones", and the music notes key MUST be printed out. They keys require you to cut out the holes as specified because you need these to complete the field puzzles that are in place.

My goal for this wherigo is to make this a true "Goonies" adventure.  There may be water hazards thus you might need to be prepared.

The game will automatically save at certain areas.  I may remove these if they cause any problems.

You can complete this in an afternoon and should take an hour or less if you solve all of the field puzzles.  The D/T terrain is for the Spring-Fall months when it's rainy, as the winter months will be much easier, though if you do this in the winter you won't get the full adventure feeling.

The final I had thought of first when planning this and I think it is by far my favorite final I've ever done.

Special Thanks to Clue Hunter and Siamese Retriever for Beta testing this for me while I had fun watching them do the field puzzles..

For the FIRST 3 adventurers there Goonie maps on parchment to take as a souvenir. Also I may add goodies from time to time for you adventurer seekers. 

Please respect the park hours of Sunrise to Sunset.

Now for the required pictures to print out, please make sure they are printed in the size saved.(Typically print on 4x6 card should work fine) as the Skull Key should be about 5 inches high and about 3 inches wide at the head.
