Of course I will have to find someplace that a EarthCache could go to tie it in to the theme (maybe place an EC and the cache near each other).

That is exactly what I did with my own EC challenge. GC1A1Q8 It's right next to a spring EC belonging to Auntienae.

I know I found it at a function I attended in the area, with T&B and DRHaas. I signed it but have not claimed the find since as of that time I had only found 2 (one being the spring you mention) and I still dont have the appropriate finds to claim it yet. Maybe Saturday

I noticed Waushara county was not on the list of having an EC... Anyone know who is working on getting the Redgranite quarry up as an active EC?
I caught a brief headline in the Waushara Argus Dec 31 issue (local weekly newspaper) that it's been approved as an Earthcache site.

Just wonderin' cuz I had thought of this site a while back. I'm contemplating placing an EC (of course I may need some guidance from the expert EC owners) This area is very familiar to me... Mom lives across from Silver Lake outside of Wautoma... and have spent many summers in Mt Morris for I guess about 50 years. Gosh, has it been that long!!!

Thanks Lostby7... for the link and...I'm looking forward to visiting the EC to claim my "found it". I've been to the quarry park many, many times... it's a great picnic area for families
