Geocache Description:

Caution! Do not drop Geocoins as they have been stolen from this cache.

Depending on where you park could change the nature of the terrain greatly. Easyish way = Terrain 3 --- Hard way = Terrain 4. Check your maps. Cache is located on the trail and there is an easyish way in.

I love you all. I really do!

Some might cuss at the difficulty of the terrain but if you choose the right way in you will be rewarded with a niceish walk and a outstanding view.

I bet you were getting tired of all of those drive-ups anyway.

I managed to find a spot where the restrictions of the surrounding forest preserves do not apply. It is an enchanting view into areas forbidden to us (Lemont Woods, Keepataw Forest Preserve and Black Partridge Nature Preserve).

Beautiful. Truly beautiful.

This cache is larger than most ammo boxes and smaller than a 5 gallon container. Meow. Big enough for large travel bugs but too tough of a walk to be a hotel.

I left the container totally exposed, visable from all sides but the approach side. Lets see how long it will last.

Please feel free to take one of the 'Ready to Go' cache containers which I have placed inside.


Since I started working in this area many local caches have entertained me. I have been amused and challenged everyday when I go out to grab a cache at lunch.

This cache is my way of saying 'Thank You' to all of the local area cachers.

Especially to...

Dedication: To Eagle Son

Who has put many geocachers (myself included) thru the wringer. Challenging us to 'Choose Wisely" when selecting the parking and a path from stage to stage on his fun multi's.

Whether the obstacle being brambles or a river or even a great distance he made us look at the maps and make a decision.

Thanks for all of the fun caches; I know we all enjoy them very much.

Keep on challenging us!
