Geocache Description:

Located just west of Fredericksburg off U.S. Highway 18. Parking is available at Robert Mattke Park located across the highway from Plum Creek Golf Course. The cache is located close to the parking area and your walk should be easy. The previous cache here got archived last summer so I decided to resurrect this cache site and bring it back to life to share its story.

A Flying Bridge? Near Fredericksburg? I'm hoping by now I have made you just a little curious. On a mild December morning in 1998, the residence of Fredericksburg awoke to a "Flying Bridge". It was quite the sight and drew a large crowd to watch such an event. It must have been a slow news day in the area as well because Newscopter 9 out of Cedar Rapids even covered the event on their newscast. Unfortunately I won't get into all the details about where the bridge came from, how old it is or why a bridge would be flying in the first place. When you visit the cache as Paul Harvey would say "Now you know the rest of the story".

The container you are looking for is a magnetic key holder. Please return the cache as you found it.

The cache should be fairly easy and quick to find. Good Luck with the "Flying Bridge" cache!
