Your cache is located at Siegel Marsh on Barton Road, off Route 8 (State Game Lands # 218). Since it is state game lands, be aware of hunters.

The cache is a .50 caliber ammo can filled with goodies for everyone. You will need a compass and possibly some bug spray. This is just a little different; the waypoint actually leads to a specific location from where you will need the following directions to locate the cache:

While standing between these two large trees
Head SSE 35 feet, 160 degrees.

Next, look for one tree that splits into four
Stand on the SSE side and go 80 feet more.
(head SSE 145 degrees, 80 feet.)

A big and small rock stacked is your next quest
When you find these, travel SSW.
(head SSW 195 degrees, 20 feet.)

It should be right here. Look closely around.
If you're a good cacher, an ammo box is found.

We hope you enjoy your 'treasure', and finding it!

Finally decided to get this one off of our list on a great 50 degrees and sunny "Winter" afternoon. Even though we're very out of shape after hibernating for the winter, the mile round trip didn't seem too bad. Tomorrow may be a different story.
There were a few noisy geese in the first pond but the back was jammed with screeching seagulls and a few geese.

The tree with the big hole is now a downed tree but the trunk is still standing. Followed the instructions for the other 2 points and my wife spotted the hide right away.

Thanks for showing us this part of the Game Land and for the cache.

Found cache with Nord128 and we only had to walk more than a mile and a half.
We took the long way around and then the long way back out.
Great hide in a very nice area

Great day for caching!

a bit windy and tons of Geese but none the less it could not have been better.

I was driving home from a work meeting and could not resist hitting some of these caches in the area.
I wish I had more time to grab them all, but there is always another time.
Thanks for the great adventure and I look forward to more!
