During 2001 & 2002 I spent around a year living in my truck and travelling across the country. It was definately a long strange trip both good and bad and this cache is loosely based on that experience. If the comments range from it was great to it was horribly frustrating then I accomplished what I set out to do.

***The FIRST FINDER PRIZE of a $50 PRINCETON-TEC HEADLAMP has been claimed, congrats to Tprints and PakratPat***!!



First off I want to make clear upfront that this cache is going to take alot of time and patience.

YOU WILL NEED to bring a compass, notebook or notepad, and a pen or pencil. I also strongly recomend bug spray (it's a must), water (another must), a cell phone, food, waterproof boots, first aid kit, etc. etc. For some this will be a long and challenging hike, this cache should only be attempted by those individuals who are prepared to hike 5-10 miles of varying terrains. Also the cache requires crossing 6 mile creek several times, this is a shale bottom creek, and as you fishermen know it can be very very slippery (I fell several times placing this) so you need to be careful. Also in order to complete the cache some basic knowledge of hiking and navigation is required.


This is a somewhat "fragile" cache with several locations that could "go bad". If you notice something out of place (ie container out in the open, sign falling down, etc.) please fix it so all other cachers can complete it. I'm not saying move something if you didn't like it, but it's pretty obvious when things are in a location they shouldn't be. I will try and have the other Gamehendge Rangers (Thade, Barking Tree Spider, and Fishinsmit) keep an eye on this and all my other caches, plus I will be back in town several times each year, however if a problem should arrive please email me and I'll get it taken care of.


The trade items were all gathered from other caches during my travels accross the country. Each one is labeled with the state it came from, the cache name, and waypoint it came from so that can look up the item and see the cache it came from and check out my experience there.


The cache is located in 6 mile county park. The best place to park is at N 42 07.757, W 79 55.754.
