HELP CLEAN UP PRESQUE ISLE PLUS WIN A BRAND NEW GPS!!



This cache is a little different in that there are no trade items, so please donít leave anything. Itís also much easier than anything else Iíve put out but I wanted people without a GPS to be able to find it, and itís for a good cause so Iíll let it slide.

MAKE SURE YOU BRING A CAMERA!!!! (if you donít have one or forget it Iíve provided one but then you have to return it)






The cache contains a logbook and a bunch of garbage bags. In order to ďcomplete the cacheĒ and have it count as a find you must collect at least 1 bag of trash from the park. In addition, for every bag you fill up with trash you get 1 entry into the drawing. At the end of the clean up season (whenever thereís to much snow sticking around to pick up trash) one lucky person will WIN A GPS!!!!! compliments of






So the more bags of trash you pick up the better your chances are. Also feel free to stop any time and collect more trash for more chances to win, you can only get credit for finding it once but you can keep getting entries no matter how many times you stop grab a bag and trash out.


LETíS HELP CLEAN UP THE PARK AND GIVE CACHERS A GOOD NAME


If you donít have a GPS follow these directions to get to the cache:


The cache is located on the Canoe Portage Trail (maps are available at the park office). From the trailhead the cache is approx 450-500 ft down the trail on the left hand side.


1) Start from the trailhead (right beside the multipurpose trail) and keep walking until the Canoe Portage trail intersects with another trail (the Duck Pond Trail). The cache is about 75 paces or 200ft away.


2) Keep walking but be on the lookout for a dead hollow tree trunk on the side of the trail (itís about 8ft tall and grayish, itís pretty tough to miss) as soon as you can see this tree immediately look left. You should be very close to the cache.


3) Look for a little ďclearingĒ (actually just less weeds then everywhere else) on the left that you can walk into, you should see a pile of branches and tree trunks approx 10 feet off the trail. Thatís where the cache is hidden.


4) If your right in front of the tall hollow dead tree trunk (that I mentioned in #2) you went to far. The cache is about 45 paces or approx 125 ft before that tree trunk.


Ok so youíve found the cache. Now all you have to do is collect some trash. The bags are pretty large and they need to be full to count. When you log please include the number of bags you collected. Also YOU NEED to take a picture of your haul and post it in the log (or email it to me) (thatís why you need a camera). Like I said for every bag of trash collected youíll get 1 entry.


Unfortunately Presque Isle gets itís share of inconsiderate visitors. So finding trash should be no problem. There shouldnít be much around the vicinity of the cache but thereís plenty of places to look. Walking the trails is always a good idea (heck you could hit some of the other caches while your at it), also Iíve noticed that the shoreline tends to be filled with trash (both on the beach side [I picked up a bunch on right along the water on beach six the day I placed this] and the bay side). Anywhere there is large amounts of people (pavilions, picnic tables, the monument, people fishing, the tables on the beaches, etc.) tends to get pretty bad. As does the end of the monument. If you still canít find enough (means were doing a great job) ask at the Ranger Station or come back another day.


You may want to bring along gloves as the trash along the shoreline is usually wet and pretty funky. Also bug sprayís a good idea.

This is a great idea!
Way to go Mike.
I am sure this is only the start of more to come with these events.

My hat goes off to Gander Mountain for providing you with the GPS to give away.
Please be sure to provide me with pictures of the winner so i can add them to a news write-up.
