Oh man was that an adventure. To begin my day I programmed in my GPS and took route 90 to my target. After circling it I finaly found a place to park and a trail entrance at about 1.5 miles from the target. I went in and after a while deverted off trail to follow the arrow. If you know what Yellow Stone smells like you know what I found. A dead lake with so much dead algie and mushy ground it was alost impossible to get through. So I went through it (of course).
After almost sinking a few times and having to do a crop circle action on the plant life there (It'll be fine in a day) I finally found a lake/river thing. Futilly I climbed onto a fallen tree so I could actually see over the very dense and high undergrowth. Somewhere on the river I saw a girl kyaking. (Aside from the personaly thought of hey she's hot) I yelled out hello and asked for directions. She stopped and said she didn't know where the trail was because she was kyaking.
Now imaging this. You see a body with nothing but a backpack poking up out of this very very dense high plant life and the person seems in need of help. Wouldn't you ask if you could provide any? She didn't. She just went along on her marry way. I have a word that I would like to call her but it would break the rules. I took the fallen tree and throwing it in the river to walk across it only to be halted by an impassibly dense bush like area. So I finally gave up and walked back almost loosing my shoes a foot or two in the mud I climbed through before.
Back at the car I was driving home and desided to take a different route. I saw a parking lot. I got out and walked down the trail that was thier and found the stash just off the very clean and easy trail. Word of warning. DO NOT GO IN THE WRONG TRAIL! The stash is a pain to find when you're at the right spot as well. Inaccurate readings do to high trees and a bunch of places I would hide it lead to a lot of pacing back and forth to find it. Good luck!

Beautiful day, 73F., minimal skeeters. Entrance billboard says these trails are closed to all activities except hunting during the upcoming shotgun season. Dogs must be on a 10' leash, no bike riding, & there's a fishing hole 1/2 mile to the north.

III+ got me within 20' where I saw signs of NaviCache. Ammo box is very full with bunny picture puzzle, poncho, toy rhino, bandaid kit, ghost key ring, CD-R, Slam Band watch, golf ball, mini lite, baseball, AA batteries, flashlite & 2 new quarters. Nothing struck my fancy, but I left 2 WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking. The pix I've attached include an artsy reflection with turtles & a tree scarred by fools with a knife. I have more pix attached at the "other" website.

Bring a garbage bag, I filled one with butts, candy wrappers, beer cans, shotgunned oil cans & a snowmobile radiator. There's a large, plastic tarp & bottles 10' off the trail near the NaviCache.

Thanks Gary!

Well we won't forget this one! Wanted to head out before dinner to be the first. Put a ham in the oven and son finished homework. Had been to this park many times before but never to this location. I wore sandels as I had read the descrip.(level ground and all) and peeked at cache location.....Also took Foo the wonderdog.(pomeranian with an attitude). Turned down ham and raced off. Great hike in, saw over 15 turtles all with their heads stretched out as far as it would go to get the last rays of sunshine...Hiked in then fearless leader led us into the swamp...I kept saying that the descrip was level ground no bushwhacking ect...But went by his GPS and hit every tree there several times and then again....Skeeters were feasting, my shoes got stuck and came off, dog couldn't see over the brush and became burr magnet....Got to be close to an hour and I had to tell the fam to move on...Or sacrific the ham.......Reluctantly, we left, very unhappy that this would be our first non find. Then fearless leader had me read off the coordinates again........HE PUT THEM IN WRONG...We had looked just 300 feet away...So although he was a bit red in the face...He ran off with the rest of us on hot pursute and within minutes found the cache...In not a bad area at all....considering where we had been....We took out a suction duck, koosh thing and coleman bug hummer......Left a full size puzzel of a rabbit, flashlight and metalic smiley face key chain .......Skeeters were on high alert as we left and amassed in droves...This is one we won't forget!!!Thanks for the hunt. We laughed and shook our heaads all the way home. FYI ham was just a bit charred but we were hungry and it tasted great!! DxChallenged
