Dune Death March Oasis
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is a .6 mile hike over the hilly, sandy dunes of Silver Lake. Bring water. Park in the State Park parking lot south of the "dune buggy" staging area.
This is our first geocache hide. We placed this cache on a hike over the dunes while spending a week at Grace Youth Camp. Initial contents include West Side Christian Calculators and pens. We hope to inspect / refresh this cache each year on our annual "Death March" from camp to lake Michigan and back. We hope this cache doesn't get burried by the shifting sands like the dozeen cottages at the end of N. Shore Drive did a several years ago!
9/17/05 *** UPDATE ***
This cache permit has finally been approved by Silver Lake State Park, and the listing goes live today! At least the cooler weather makes this a nice trek. I hope the dune has not completely covered the cache by now!
First finder will find "Kermit The Cache Tramp" (TBFBF3), which who was under our van seat from April to May since our trip with "MeekSeekers" to Florida, then stuck in this unlisted cache since last May! Please check that he's still alive and well, and move him along the way!
