Oh yeah and twice I went to the main office to see if there is anything in the park that is not on a map like an old building foundation of some historic site and it has been closed both times. When I go if they are closed again I am just going to find a good place somewhere on the east side of the park. I already have about 20 or more caches on the west side.

Let me know if you need a contact name and I'll get it for you. Maybe now that the season is over they've squirreled themselves away to another park.

Thanks for checking back in. I was sending out an email tonight to touch base with some of the Trail Bosses.

I was going to find a place for the cache there, but decided to visit a hospital for 3 days instead. I have it ready to go and will have the final information no later than Sunday.

We went to Governor Dodge SP yesterday to grab the Wisconsin Jasmer Challenge cache that was there (YAY). We thought we'd go for the state park cache there too but were surprised to see that there wasn't one there. Not yet anyway. We'll be back! We were also able to get the WGA Mirror Lake and Rocky Arbor SP caches. Beautiful time to go there with the full Fall colors!

Too bad JW Wells is in Michigan. That park is the closest state park to me.

Glad to see just two remain.

We have 2 state parks caches left looking for Trail Bosses.

Does anyone know of an energetic cacher looking to place and maintain a WGA State Park cache for:

Nelson-Dewey State Park (Cassville, WI)

Council Grounds State Park (Merrill, WI)

Looks like 47. I think in conversations I had mentioned there were 46 but I was wrong which happens often.

We had questions about Kettle Moraine (which is a state forest) and the two others which were listed as SP but one is now a ran by the town of Lawrence and the other is a State Rec area.

Their info on the state sites are a little misleading at times.
