Geocache Description:


It does mark a wise parking spot. However, in order to obtain the cache, you must cross highway one so be careful

This cache is a rather large, circular lock n’ lock container camouflaged by some nifty tape and set just a few kilometres off highway one near Lac Des Arcs. However, the contents of the cache are not the focal point of this hide; rather, the location may be of particular interest to those with a certain amount of courage. The cache has been placed near a long forgotten cold war bunker, originally created with the intention that it would house important legal documents if the country was to be threatened. Since then, the Canadian government has abandoned it and has made no move to board it up, leaving it to be used by various creatures, one such being the Bushy Tailed Wood Rat, which carries the appearance of an oversized gerbil and has made a luxurious living in the pitch dark of the bunkers cavernous rooms.

The following is a code that was utilized by prisoners of war in Vietnam who were unable to communicate verbally and had to resort to this altered form of auditory Morse code (note: this is not Morse code) in order to send messages. Even if you are unable to obtain the code, this should be easy enough to figure out on your own.

Whilst on your way to the cache site, you will come across the gaping mouth of the bunker. Do not attempt to enter without a good flashlight as it is pitch dark inside the bunker. You might notice that there has been some human activity recently, and, if you are lucky, you might even stumble across a Bushy Tailed Wood Rat (which is no guarantee seeing as they are highly nocturnal and it would be unwise to come here after dark).

-logbook and pencil

-First to find prize

-mepps fishing lure

-Harry potter guide book

-fridge magnet
