Middle Road, turning into Locust Street spans 20 miles, beginning in northeast Bettendorf and ending in western Davenport. It is a thoroughfare for traffic in Scott County. This is a FTF Power Trail, beginning at the start of Middle Road. A "Power Trail" is a series of at least 50 geocaches within close proximity. A "FTF Power Trail" means that if you are the "first to find" (i.e. the 'FTF') of a cache in this series, PLEASE 'pay it forward' by placing the next cache along this trail, and do so within two weeks of getting the FTF. Keep in mind that some areas will be higher muggle traffic than others, so you may have to be creative in your hides, or may have to dive slightly off course to put out a hide.
This is a two-part multicache. At stage #1, you'll need a special ToTT (hint: one that plays compact discs) to obtain coordinates for stage #2. Again, please don't be the "First to Find" if you don't plan to hide the next in the series. This power trail had a 40+ day hiatus because the FTF of MTL PT #47 (IowaBeaver) decided there weren't any places to hide a cache that he would be satisfied with.
