Geocache Description:

Pain in The Cache - Elevation

As many experienced cachers know, there are certain factors that make finding a cache difficult. This series of caches is placed to explore these barriers and put cachers through their paces dealing with them.

This cache is called Elevation. It takes you through a portion of Kettle Morraine State Forest - Southern Unit, near a segment of the Ice Age Trail. This cache is a multi-cache with small camoflaged vials hidden with coordinates, each leading to the next hide. Parking along the road can be found down at (yes, I said DOWN) N42 49.058 W88 37.265.

Note: A special code is added in each individual cache to find a final cache that will be tied in with all the other caches. Keep track of these codes to locate the final cache.

ANOTHER Note: Kettle Morraine is full of nasty thorns, brambles, insects and ticks. Survey your route and don't bushwhack unless you have to. Not only will you save your skin, you will have less impact on nature!

See if you have what it takes to beat the P.I.T.C.! Good Luck!
