Found it basswoodbend found Historic Caches of Benzie County Challenge

Saturday, August 9, 2014Michigan

We were over to Honor today to do Rathergohiking's Earth Cache for our souvenir and decided to drop down to Thompsonville to get this one. We enjoyed the drive and the walk. We had never been on this trail before. Signed the log and left our card. Thanks Goldfinch for placing these Historic caches and giving us the motivation to relive the earlier times. It's both fun and sad to reread our logs and see the names of fellow cachers from back in the day. So many of them are no longer active.

The first of these historic caches we found was GC7AEF- Kiln You Dig It. On October Fifth, 2003 we had a great time two tracking and enjoying the fall colors. We found CG5B26 - L. A. Pathway on December 13, 2003. It was our first find in the snow back when we still enjoyed hiking in the snow. GCCB2C - The Pampered Cache was added to our list on another cold snowy day, February 15th in 2004. Both CGF955 - Underdeadwood, and GC5E7E - Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral were found on a rainy day, May 21, 2004. In June we did GC8557 - LooneyBin Two on the 14th. At that time it hadn't been found in a year. Instead of going by kayak, I hiked the muddy path from the campground and then huffed up the hill. I remember the workout. Later that month, on June 20th we found the last of the historic caches, GC92FE - GANDERGANG2 on our second annual Fathers Day outing.

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.
