Well, I finally got around to finishing this cache! This was my third visit to the site. The first was almost two years ago. I didn't find it that time because Puppyman was working in the wrong datum and I failed to recognize that I was supposed to be looking for a micro. I took another crack at it on a very cold day in the dead of winter with Puppyman along as a guide. He basically showed me where the first stage was hidden because it was way too cold and windy for him or I to spend much time looking for it. It was so cold that we almost died of exposure on the short walk from the parking spot to the cache. One of Puppyman's ears froze and broke off. I thought that Puppyman looked better with only one ear but Mrs. Puppyman didn't. She glued it back on with some krazy glue that we were going to use for a trade item. Thus we ended up being short two trade items that day: Puppyman's ear and the krazy glue. I never liked Puppyman's wife very much after that. We could have traded for some good stuff if we would have had that ear and the krazy glue.

Anyhow... I found the first stage without the GPS because I already knew where it was. It contained directions rather than coordinates. This is a bit unusual but I was game and determined to see this cache through to the end this time. I was either going to find it or go to Puppyman's house and drag him out to show me where it was. I would tear off another ear if necessary and there would be no krazy glue this time! I wrote down the instructions verbatim and turned off the GPS. I wasn't worried about the mud because I was already a mess after slogging through the quagmire at Jennings. I should have been worried. My boots are now officially ruined. Are you happy now, Paul? I made it to the second stage but I wasn't a pretty sight when I arrived. My black pants were brown from the knees down and there were only two big balls of mud where my feet used to be. One of my eyes was bloodshot from getting poked by stick during a previous hunt and my hat was trailing a stylish veil of spider webs. We can only hope that nobody saw this freak tooling through the forest on this day. It dragged itself onward through the pine swamp to the final stage which was found easily. It took a geocoin and left a YJTB to lure some other sucker into the quagmire.

Thanks for the hunt, Paul! It took me almost two years but I did get it done and I had a great time. Johnny.

Number 9 of 12 on the day. I should have worn hip boots, the mud and water went up over my backpacking boots, cold wet feet for the rest of the day :(

Took and left nothing.
