Greetings ,

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings but it has been a while since I first looked at this cache. I can't find any recent responses about maintaining this cache so it will be archived and removed from the active cache listings.

A few weeks have now become a couple of months and sadly it is time for this cache to be retired.

Please remove any remaining cache bits from the area.

Thanks again for choosing to play at Geocaching.com.

Glenn, your friendly Geocaching.com admin.

Geocache Description:

This cache is in a nice park in West St. Louis County with a couple small lakes for canoeing/sailing, walking/biking trail, soccer fields etc. There are a few other caches within the park

This is a 3-part cache. The coordinates above are for a sign in the recommended parking area. Total round trip required is a little less than 3 miles assuming you don’t make any wrong turns. Parking close to the sign may be a challenge on the weekends. On the sign, you’ll find the park rules and regulations posted. One of the rules is that the speed limit is “xy” miles per hour. Replace the X&Y in the below coordinates to find the second waypoint.

N38°4x.4xx W9y°x9.451

Most of the walk to the second waypoint is on a paved trail. The second wpt is written on one side of a special rock. The walk from waypoint 2 to the final is off the paved trail and is generally a swampy area with an eerie feel to it….

Please Note:

1.If it has rained in the last couple days, you will get muddy

2.If you don’t wear repellant, gnats, ticks and skeeters will eat you.

3.It is likely you will come across a snake. Leave them alone; you’re a visitor in their house.

4.You will probably have to cross patches of poison ivy. If you’re allergic like me, wear long pants.

5.If you don’t see any deer, you’re not paying attention. I’ve seen at least two each visit, and have counted as many as twelve in a single visit. One of these days someone is going to find a fallen rack of antlers. Late evening is the best time to see the deer.

6.Lots of mushrooms, lichen, ducks, geese. Egrets and herons for the picture takers.

Final Cache is a 1-gallon jug full of goodies. Park closes ½ hour after sunset, Dogs permitted on a 6-foot leash, final cache is not wheelchair or stroller accessible.

NOTICE: Please be respectful of the posted park hours. If you enter the park after hours you are trespassing. If you are stopped you can be ticketed or arrested and will put the future of geocaching in the parks in jeopardy
