Co-{*FTF*} with Smurfy98 @ 10:10PM. Wow! How can I express how I feel about this series? All I can say is the road was hard and fraught with uncertainty. The past four days caching with Smurfy98 on this series has really been awesome and filled with some teaching exercises. The both of us were on our way home from the Peoria area in separate vehicles on the Saturday that this series hit the shelves about 4:30PM. I was in El Paso, IL and Smurfy98 was somewhere in between. She stopped and attempted Miris Beigas and Slipjep Ulica on her way home but both resulted in DNFs. Being that I was driving a school bus back, I could not stop and help but we did get out on the road later that night starting about 9:30PM. We cached South and stopped about 3:30 AM after another DNF on Slipjep Ulica. Ten of the series were netted that night for us and we seemed to be following other cachers that passed through earlier. The second day was spent working from the Southern terminus to the North where we netted nine finds before calling it quits for the day. We passed by several caches Sunday while trying to get as many as we could. Day Three had us get to the point where we needed only ~one~ more cache before getting the final. We grabbed that one today but could not find the final after we went there and searched diligently. After taking the time to regroup a little bit, we headed back down this evening with fresh ideas. I am glad to say that I am happy now that we have finished the series off and can attest to how epic this series can be. The road was long and hard, and we both feel that we know more about the roads on both sides of I-39 as well as I-39 itself now that we have spent so much time down here. This series is definitely one that is a must-do if you have the time and resources to work the entirety. A lot of the hides can be so deviously simple, including this one, that it will leave you scratching your head when you find it.

The FTF prize will be split between Smurfy and I, but I can say I'm lovin' it!

Thanks for an awesome experience and for bringing us to places that we never knew existed. We are quite happy the journey is over and we have thirty shiny new smiley faces on our maps to show it. TFTC!!!

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
