Comments:
The 4-waypoints are in the open with lots of satellites for inexpensive eTrex owners, few bugs, and little greenery to trample. Bring a garbage bag to "cache in, trash out". Be wary of on-lookers and swap equal value for one of the high quality contents: $10 Sullivan's Charbroil certificate, clip-on AM/FM radio, Garland House drink chit, digital sports watch, encyclopedia software, stereo headphones, and the ever-popular WheresGeorge.com dollars for free tracking (please do NOT sign them). For emergencies, I've also included GPS AA batteries and a flashlight. Please log your success (or failure) and share your adventure, cache trade, etc. Thanks and enjoy the great outdoors.

8-5-01: checked up on cache (sealing lid). Added Red Wings baseball ticket & lottery scratcher. Took Imposter to continue her Westward trip. Also took duplicate Sullivan's Charbroil certificate for another cache.

Tried to check this one without a GPSR and failed. It's quite overgrown...watch your step amongst the boulders.

We can't believe we finally finished this one. We started it almost one year ago. We were saving the 2nd waypoint for the winter when we knew we couldn't travel far from home. Then the winter was so bad we got out to get the information but didn't write down all the details. Back we went today and finished the search. The cache is safe and dry. There are still a lot of nice things in this one. Enjoyed waypoint 3. Took nothing, left nothing.

Found this one on lunch at 3:30pm

I started on Friday during lunch since it looked like a nice "don't get dirty" hunt. I found parts one and two Friday and the last two today.

There is still some great stuff in this one if anyone else finds it. It doesn't come up in zip code or area searches on either site.

I took a mini flashlight and left a medal.

Thanks for the hide.

Checking the NaviCache because ClanLally told me the final resting place may have been bulldozed. Some rocks were moved & it took me a minute to find the still-visible NaviCache. Bring a hand spade or garden trowel as it's "wedged" with some settled dirt. TIA.

Yippy! Once again the Caron and Quinn team come in first to locate this cache placed by yardboy and his math skills.
We were doing just great jumping from waypoint to waypoint without a flaw until we got to number 3, then I had to turn to the wife as I had not enough toe's and fingers.
Wonderful way to spend a quiet sunny saturday afternoon.
I had no clue that waypoint one was even there, this may come in handy someday. I left the hitch hiker Imposter there, the thing just wouldn't keep her mouth shut!
We also left the Sullivans 5.00 certificate and a George bill for logging at www.wheresgeorge.com

PLEASE! if you find this cache and want one of the sullivans certificates, please take only one per cacher or group and leave one for the next person.
We signed the logbook and replaced the cache as we found it.
Nice sheep!
