This has been bugging me and I hope somebody can shed some light on his.
Last summer I was up at Covered Bridge Park in Cedarburg scouting the area for a cache location. While looking under Covered bridge, I found a piece of plastic thumbtacked to a rafter. On it were Lat/Long coordinates and was obviously a waypoint. I can't locate any geocache at geocaching.com that this might be connected to. (I checked out the latitude longitude coordinates on the waypoint marker, and they took me a couple hundred yards away to a log along a creek, but I could not locate a cache)

Does anybody have a clue as to what cache this could be connected with? Possibly one that was archived?

Sharkey

That marker under the bridge was part of a cache called Troll's Treasure, placed by Cedarburg Searchers. You're right, it has been archived. The site for it is: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=5495 Robin and I had previously created a virtual cache at the Covered Bridge called Family Bicycling Virtual Cache. When Cedarburg Searchers created Troll's Treasure, we archived our virtual cache, thinking there was no longer a reason to have a virtual cache there since cachers would come to the park to seek the "real" cache. Then when Troll's Treasure was later stolen and archived, we un-archived our virtual cache. It can be seen at http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.asp?ID=1552

I visited Ken and Robin's virtual cache at that location.

Such a neat little park. It's funny that several other people have scoped it out as a cache location.

Thanks for the information. That explains the little picture of the troll on the waypoint placard under the bridge. It was a rather strange feeling to get to a spot that you think will make a good geocache or waypoint locaton, only to find one already there. Must have something to do with the geocachers "6th sense" one aquires after doing this for a bit.

Best regards
