Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Warning: seek this cache at your own risk.Cache In/Trash Out Recommended

This is a multicache, there is one "leg" which will give you the location of the final cache. The final cache is to be moved by each finder.

There is a small parking lot of the Palo Marsh Natural Area, at N42.04.580 W91.47.725. New, To get to the first part you should follow the main trail to where it forks. Take the left fork, the first stage with be to your left. There is no need to bushwhack to this part, doing so will likely just attract bugs and throns anyways :D.

  1. To claim a find on this cache you must:
  2. Find the leg, and sign in the logbook, and take a garbage bag.
  3. Use the garbage bag to collect* any trash you see while seeking the final cache.
  4. Locate, retrieve, and relocate the final cache(of course signing its log as well), but keep the cache inside Marsh's boundaries.
  5. After rehiding the cache in a new spot,(not just moving the next tree) take a waypoint for the cache's new location.
  6. Return to the leg cache and write the the new location in the leg's log.
  7. Claim a find here, and post a hint** in your online log.
* Just so we're clear, you are expected to collect any trash you see. If you're somehow able to avoid all the bits of refuse, then you may replace the bag back in the leg. But that probly will not happen, unfortuantly. For the other 99 of you that did find some trash, please take it with you and dispose of properly.

** Only a hint for the final should be posted to the cache page, but not its coords! Emailing a copy of the coords to the cache owner is NOT required.

Caution: This cache is in or near a public hunting are. Please use extra care if you choose to go geocaching during open hunting season. Iowa's popular shotgun deer seasons are ususally the first 3 or so weeks of Decemeber, but the specific dates vary from year to year LINK
