I have started to dismantle this cache..

my email if you have a questions: hydrawords@yahoo.com ..

This cache has a difficulty rating of 4 because of the double digit waypoints. You will be looking for oak slats that will give coordinates until the actual cache, this is Tupperware.

Be prepared for a very long day (if you are planning to do this in one day). Take water and snacks/lunch. Also, I would suggest a cell phone just in case you want a taxi back to your car! This cache was made for walking!

I started Cache Master Flash at day break on a Saturday in early November and finished it up at the night of 12/12 in a nice snow fall at about the same time as I quit in November. I did not complete the cache in a day liked I had hoped, the last set of coords were off and this added an extra 1.5 miles to the journey. It took about three weeks to track down Lighthouse before the correction to the final location was made. There were 2 slats that were lying on the ground so until Lighthouse posts they have been picked up the snow will block your success.

As the crow flies the distance from the first slat at the southern entrance of Ellison Pk. to the cache is 1/3 of the total miles I hiked and biked to complete this cache. I ran out of water and was grateful to have a phone to get ferried back to the start. You walk through the park to another park. I have not figured out the number but there are several caches listed on both sites you pass by while completing this one.

So what can I compare this truly epic cache to…reading Moby Dick straight through…running a marathon, except this will take longer and covers less ground…driving ˝ way to Florida…winning the lottery because 3 different times I was about to give up and then by dumb luck I saw the slat…thinking for hours *this has GOT to be the last waypoint*…and being incorrect.

My hat is off to Lighthouse Rocket for setting up this cache and providing a handsome reward to the first finder, I left 2 items and each has double digit value. I encourage anyone who likes a good cache challenge to give this one a go.

Thanks for the weight loss.
Wheelygood
