Found on a foggy and unseasonably warm January afternoon. Bushwhacked here from the Georges Painvin cache. Glad I did this one in the winter, as I crossed some pretty swampy areas that were fortunately still mostly ice. I only had to cross the Root River once, and did so without major incident other than getting my pants a little muddy.

After getting to the other side, I was so excited that I slipped on some ice. I see a black object fly out of my coat pocket and slide effortlessly on the ice RIGHT TOWARD THE RIVER! No I wasn't carrying a hockey puck in my pocket, it was my trusty Palm (PDA). Well I learned a valuable lesson... Palms don't swim. Using my lifeguarding skills, I was able to retrieve it from about a foot down in the icy water, but I doubt it will ever work again.

Cache consists of a plastic bag and logbook... that's it. Logbook was still (amazingly) dry, so I didn't replace it with the micro (35mm) container I brought along to do so if necessary. It would be great if the owner (or next finder) would bring out a small tupperware container to give the logbook a real home.

Thanks for placing this cache!

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
