Cache #3300...Wow! This was an epic adventure. I started on this one several months ago on a cold, snowy winter day. My research of the first site consisted of contacting the Brown Co. Historical Society who had no idea where it was but found the general location for me. My first attempt at finding it was after a major snow and I tired quickly in the deep snow...should have taken my snowshoes. When spring arrived I made another attempt and found it easily...what a hidden gem this is! One has to spend some time here to fully appreciate it...absolutely love the history.
I knew where the second building was located but had to wait for the spring season to get the information I needed...the gal at the entrance didn't know where it was formerly located though but researched it for me in their files...then did an internet search to show me where in GB that was. It was wrong...showed it to be in the area over around Fisk Park. When I couldn't find the site, I stopped and asked a gentleman in the neighborhood if he knew where it was...his smart phone put me on the right track...almost. I ended up in still the wrong area, got frustrated and headed for home, went a short distance, and spotted what I was looking for...finally!
Then came the attempt at finding azimuths...huh?!! At this point I almost hit a dead end...thanks GR for the help. It was much appreciated...learning something new can be a real challenge sometimes. This was an adventure where the destination was sweet...but the journey was truly the most rewarding part. Am giving it a "favorite" point and my highest four smiley rating TFTC
