I'll be spending like 5 days in the greater Milwaukee area down to the Illinois border and I kind of want to do this trip a bit different and spend the majority of my time doing mystery caches. Can anyone recommend some of the ones they have enjoyed. I have just less than a month so I should have enough time to beat my head against the wall on quite a few Smile Thanks in advance.

if you have a Garmin unit that has chirp capabilities
GC2H3TE


Not to much for puzzles, so dont have too many to help your quest with

How about the GeoIdols2 series? I've only done about4 of them but they are great hides. A puzzle for the coordinates and then very creative containers and hiding spots. They aren't actually in the city though, they are along the Ice Age Trail kind of near Hartford.

I would recommend GC2YTJ1, it is an easy field puzzle at a Milwaukee area institution. The cache itself is one of those evil little hides.

Nice and it fills in a missing D\T square for me! I will be doing this one for sure.

You better have a Phone-A-Friend ready for this one. A lot of experienced cachers have had DNF's on this one for their 1st & 2nd tries. The puzzle is easy enough to solve, but not the final resting place of the hide itself. Twisted Evil

I'd echo Beccaday's suggestion: the Geo-idols season 2 series http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=087d3f93-5934-47dd-b4a6-4f89af0f982d

The 15 mystery caches in this series are among the best around, and collectively have 159 favorite votes (so far). The difficulty level ranges from 3 to 5 and terrain ranges from 2 to 4.5. The puzzles are fun to solve, and the hides are on the thinking outside-of-the box creative side. It's located about 30 minutes NW of Milwaukee, with the 15 caches located in two different underdeveloped unpopulated parks. You won't encounter too many people while searching for these fun hides.

Thanks for the lists! I have a few of these done already, and some I have no clue as to where to start.
