A series of 7 caches. The first 6 stand alone as unique and challenging levels of caching, but are needed to get to the final GC1RQ7Y

Level 1 GC1MFF8 Probably the easiest, as it should be, but finding the numbers needed for the final might slow you up.

Level 2 GC1MGYF
Level 3 GC1NPVW
Level 4 GC1NZJ5
Level 5 GC1P2RR
Level 6 GC1PFMD

The series bounces back and forth between Wisconsin and Michigan, but does not have to be done in order of the levels, except for the final. Each of the cachers to complete the series gets a certificate. Plan for about 3 hours, but many more caches in the area, so you may want more time.

No long hikes, unique interesting containers, extra challenges to find codes, and lots of muggles make the series quite interesting.

I agree. This is the most interesting series that I've ever done.

I think it took them several months to plan it all.

Very well thought out and planned. Gotta think outside the box to do this series.

Highly recommended.

Yes, so far from what I have seen, this has been a great series! I have only done three, I beleive, but they have been top notch. I can't wait to be able to finish the rest of this series.

Is this feasible in a day trip?

It looks like there is at least one issue with the underlying caches, but beyond that? Might put this one on the radar if the kids would like it.

Definitely feasible in a day trip and the kids would LOVE it...the final has some great stuff for them to pick through. But be aware...some are in areas of high muggle activity.

Well I have found the kids to be excellent for providing stealth cover by being able to crawl around and look natural doing it. Particularly good for playgrounds.

I'm starting to get the "When are we going to go flying again?" questions from the peanut gallery so the wheels are a-turnin' on this one.

Only one lonely cache there though. Crying or Very sad

I'm looking forward to finishing up this series. I got two or three of them a few months ago. I kept the collected codes secretly tucked away so I can do the final when I get back to the area without having to revisit those caches!

We managed to pull the whole series off in a Sunday trip from the Appleton area. After the first one, we were hooked!

Feel free to read our logs if you like, they pretty well document our fun for the day! Many thanks to FunkyFinderz4 for putting this fun cache series out! Highly recommended! Very Happy
