Didn't find it foodninja couldn't find Welcome to the Swamp!

Friday, August 11, 2006Manitoba, Canada

Well it goes like this, I thought you dont need a boat to do this it is just a creek to cross. I parked about 1 mile away for the first 10th of a mile no problem some tall cattails, then they got thicker and thicker. I started to celebrate every fifth of a mile as one step closer. Then the mush got deeper, is ok only shin high trudge on! I then started celebrating ever 100th of a mile, bc it took 15 min to get that far. At .64 miles to the cache is when all hell broke loose shin deep turned to waist deep. I trudged on hoping it would get better. At .60 miles to the cache, Up to my armpits in swamp. Up to this point I thought death by misadventure would be an interesting way to go, now I was looking it in the face. I could not get out. I started to panic, sank more. Then I relaxed and treated it like I fell through Ice in the winter. Pulled down as many cattails as I could get my hands on and used them to make kind of a make shift snow/swamp shoe to pull myself onto. It was at this point that I turned back.

Please folks use a boat.

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.
