We reached our first milestone in Geocaching today...we found our 100th cache. It really is not a big number, as we have seen people online that have over 10,000 finds, but it is our first notable milestone. We chose a challenging cache that was recommended by a well known husband and wife team from our area. This cache was located in Kaukauna. We started the morning with only 84 finds, so we planned 16 plus caches so we could get to this specific one for number 100. When we pulled up to the area we noticed that where the cache was supposed to be was actually in the middle of a baseball field. Hmmmmm...we were told this was going to be a challenge, but how the hell do you hide an ammo can in the middle of a baseball field....we instantly knew this cache had to be under us! Sure enough, we did some lookind around and found a culvert concealed in a nearby woods. Well good thing we had the mag-lite with us, cuz we were going to need it. Check out the pictures!!
260 Feet from the entrance....not as easy as it sounds, the culvert was only 5' tall, so we were crouched the whole way. Not only that, there was water flowing so we had to waddle the whole way with our feet 3 feet apart, or walk in the water on the super slippery scum bottom. If it was easy everyone would do it, and it would not be such a great cache for number 100.
Next up....# 200!!
