Unlikely...with the weather and a busy schedule it's not likely gonna get placed before then....I really long for the days when one could place a cache anywhere and there was nearly zero chance of stumbling on a puzzle or stage of a multi...

I will post here if I get it out and approved before Friday....I'm thinking about placing it in Pewaukee now...

Worked great, and the coords were spot on used this cache for our 2900 find.

Thanks for putting it out, It was very cold on Friday when we were in the area but still happened to get a 50 find day

This cache has had a slow start but that's OK with me...I like having something a bit different out there. Back when I started it was easier to have original hides...today, not so much.

I visited and updated the container shortly after your visit.

I did a pocket query for caches in wisconsin with the chirp icon. 19 listed, but I am thinking not all of those actually utilze this technology. the ones that state "chirp" in the title should. others should state within the write-up that the chirp enabled device is necessary.

so, in answer to your question, some, not many.

I own one and it works great. If and when you're in the Eau Claire area, give it a try.
