WOW! Can you believe that CrimeFigher's M-T-L Trail now contains 50 Caches! WOW!
To celebrate this milestone, we've put together a multi-cache that may (or may not) contain 50 waypoints! You won't know for sure how many there are for sure until you read further and begin the hunt! So get out there and Go For It!
*** IMPORTANT!!! You will need a non-perishable 'tool' (I.E. a can of soup/tomatoes/beans/peas/corn/etc.) in order to properly access the cache's log. The cache is available right at the 'unique container' that is able to hold the non-perishable can. The GPS was 'bouncy' here, but you'll see the 'container' (it's white) just to your left when you arrive at the final coords. Though not required, it would be AWESOME if the container would end up holding 50 or more of the non-perishable cans if possible at some point to celebrate this milestone!
PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE IN YOUR ONLINE LOG FOR THIS CACHE, THE DETAILS AND THE DESCRIPTION OF YOUR LONG SAGA AND EXPERIENCES SEEKING THIS MULTI-CACHE, whether it is 50% fabricated, and/or 50% true, (or neither!)
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 MORE THAN FIFTY GEOCACHES (after the next one is placed) 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. LET'S WORK TO GET A MINIMUM OF 50 MORE CACHES ON THIS AWESOME TRAIL!
LOG ONLY. Bring your own writing utensil.
GZ HAS MUGGLES, MUGGLES, MUGGLES!
BRING A FRIEND TO LOOKOUT FOR MUGGLES WHILE YOU SEARCH.
