Multi-Stage (3), from mini to medium/large. Part of our Hidden In Plain Sight" series.
This is one of our "Hidden In Plain Sight" caches. The series is all caches that are in plain sight (from some angle), and are either camo'd, inaccessible or in a place you normally wouldn't look.
This cache can be done 2 ways - by parking and doing the 1st 2 stages, and then moving for final, or just take a longer hike. It's "Oak-K Either Way".
Also, there are 3 stages with 3 logbooks/sheets. Log all three, or only the final, it's"Oak-K Either Way"
A while back, the last stage of this cache was muggled and we abandoned it. Today,(07-15-07) we went out and replaced the final cache in a different area, less than 1/2 mile from the second stage( as the crow flies).
There are some trade items in the last 2 stages, but the most loot was in the final. The first stage is along/near the Ice Age Trail. The second stage is near Shelter #1, on a spur off of the IAT. The final stage is near a nearby horse/walking trail. For all the stages, items related to nature are a good trade. Check out our "Survival In A Can" and "Keebler Vacation Home" caches nearby too!
We found the cache had been damaged (see NightRanger12's log entry) and we decided to abandon the final, and making finding the first two stages count as a find.
We went out and found a new place for the final of this cache. The placement of the cache is 'kind of' unique and may have you scratching your heads.
I went out and replaced the soggy logbook with a logsheet in a bottle. It may be more difficult to retrieve the log, but it will stay drier this way. Please replace the cache standing up!
We went out and replaced the first stage of this cache after reports of some clear-cutting in the area. The area of the stage was cut up and down, so we did a replace. We also updated the coordinates.
Parking for the first 2 stages can be found along the road near HWY 67 and Road X. If you decide to drive to the last stage, parking will be near where Road X and Moraine Ridge (horse) Trail crosses.
I have also scouted for the final stage of this cache by getting on a trail near where it comes near HWY 67, across from the Ice age parking lot, which is a bit south of Road X.
