Found it zanna found Challenge: Ironman 365 Consecutive Days

Tuesday, 08 July 2014Ontario, Canada

This cache was found on day 4 of my most recent road trip adventure. Starting off in Atlanta, GA, I put 6,275 miles on Lil' Bird (my new car) over the course of 18 days while finding around 550 caches across 16 states and 5 provinces. This journey helped me complete two special goals I'd been working on, and I can now happily say I've visited and cached in all of the lower 48 states and 10 Canadian Provinces.

I kicked things off by myself, making my way to Michigan where I picked up Mrs. I hunt for fun. We then traveled together for a week and half caching our way to Montreal where we were joined by my muggle husband. We spent 5 days exploring our way to Halifax where IHFF departed for home. The hubby and I continued on to Cape Breton for visits with family and friends before a 3 day marathon drive home. It was an absolutely amazing adventure that I'll surely never forget.

Soooooooooo. Where to begin. I guess I should just come out and say sometimes I make bad decisions. Going for this cache after a day of rain was one of those decisions. We struck out at the other 5/5 challenge along the trail so I really wanted to get this one. I put myself in some serious danger trying to get to that ammo can as every step I took was a muddy wet mess. Trying to go the last 20 feet was unbelievable. I was literally hanging onto a small root for dear life as I tried to pull myself up enough to reach the cache. After reaching it, I had to balance just so to scratch out our names. The bad decisions just kept piling up, as I decided to go UP the rest of the way to the car. I got stuck with nothing left to hang onto and luckily had enough sense not to go any further. Back down the muddy slope of death it was. After a couple of small panic attacks, I made it back to solid ground and burst out of the woods like a wild woman coming forth to civilization for the first time. Parents shielded their children, kids looked on in horror, and I trudged past them all to the car where I promptly drove to the closest Tim Horton's for a near-death doughnut.

My proof can be found on my profile. I did a streak of 500 days that I ended a couple of months back.

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.
