Willie the wolfs pits

Just in time for Halloween. This is an introduction to night caching. A very easy straightforward non-complicatednight only caching experience, suitable for family and all ages. For added thrill / scare, do during Halloween. If novice, do not attempt alone, does get a bit scary. Do not do during day light., as we are not even able to find many of the tacks.Its only 6 tenths of a mile long, seems 8 or so year olds should be able to handle it, I am only 10 years old.

The above coordinates are for parking. It’s Heatherstone lane on maps, but there is no street sign. A narrow gravel road, looks like a private driveway, only need to go in about 150 feet or so. Room for two small cars only. Please do not block the road. Best to arrive before dusk, and back up to small clearing and park. Two bicycle reflectors mark the spot. This is an official entrance to a wildlife preserve and part of the: “Enchanted Trail”. A minimum of two light sources are recommended. A head lamp works best, but a 2 D cell flashlite works fine. Carry spare batteries, if cold, put in pocket to keep warm. Mini maglight AA / AAA not recommended. Look at example glint tack midway between the 2 bicycle reflectors and walk back to mainroad and test your light set-up. If unable to see the glint tack from 100 feet, raise light up to your eye level.Procedure is: from parking area, shine lights into woods and find first glint or glow tack. Walk to it, and from it, repeat procedure, finding next one and so on. Route does not necessarily follow a near straight line and does wander on and off trails. When you find two reflectors [one above other] look for large red reflector to find cache. Once cache,A 50 cal ammo can…filled with kids stuff… is located, do not disturb or re-arrange it’s setting. Ammo can is easily accessed and pulled out from the back. Please replace the cache container exactly as found. Pay particular attention to its orientation. Make sure reflector is visible. From this point , continue allong white glint trail [aka “Entchanted Trail” ] back to car.
No serious bushwacking is nessesary. Try and see if you can find beginning of Zurchers more difficult night cache red reflectors. See “Bethel by Night”

Additional Hints

[In case a tack goes awol or is missing, just , ( in general ) follow existing trails. Max distance between tacks is usually less than 100 feet, and at times, more than one reflector is visible.]
