21 month old cache in Indiana that has never been found!

Recommended Posts

Wow! We tried this one today, but didn't want to get wet. Anyone who is near Spencer with a boat can claim a FTF on this cache that was hid in March of 2005!

Looks like you revealed the encrypted hint in your log... :laughing:

It's been on my watch (todo) list since last spring, haven't had the chance to look for it yet. I saw your DNF log when it popped up this evening.

The owner encrypted it. I guess I wasn't supposed to say it was in the middle of the river.

 

Feh. It was pretty obvious from the map view that there was some water involved :(

yeah.... I think I remember this cache.............it actually sits within view of a friend of mines house maybe i'll go sit in their back yard and watch you all go after it.

 

p.s. don't try swimming across the river barefoot I learned the hard way(a tetanus shot) that a FTF isn't worht it!

I recconoitered it a couple of weeks ago with intent on swimming for it, but decided it was not worth it after seeing the location and the river hazards extant.

 

I have thought about asking Walkin Willie if I could borry his (DNR) boat. :huh:

 

There's prolly some reg against that.

 

There is a big thread on the main forum about a similar hide in Maryland- only hidden on top of 140' bridge pylon (just in case somebody might have missed the thread- not likely)

 

I assume this one is easily accessible once one arrives at the pylon.

 

Maybe I shouldn't give away my secret, but I'm hoping for a couple of really cold weeks this winter then I might go walking on water (tethered of course).

Yeah, I saw that thread the day before we looked at the cache from the banks.

 

I wonder if there is a boat rental place anywhere close.

Don't know for sure, but I checked the non-city side of the river and the road runs into posted land. I did not see any public access sites nearby, so I would assume the answer is no.

 

I would probably use a john boat and put in off the city street just a little upstream of the cache if I were going by boat.

 

It should really be very easy. It amazes me that noone has got it yet.

Sounds like time for a conoe trip before it gets to cold!

I'm in for a little paddling(KAYAKING). Just wanted to clarify. Sunday around 2:30pm give or take.

I wanted to wait until January, when the water and air temp was down to 41° and the creek was partially frozen, like I "usually" do.

Well, kayak-cowboy, you'll be proud of me. I was along Beargrass creek four time today, and I didn't go swimming even once!

 

How'd you fare with the never-found-cache?

I just noticed this neat threat about this obviously neat cache, as I have been slumming B):laughing::wub: in the Midwest regional forum in preparation for my 8 day trip to Kalamazoo (Kazoo) MI tomorrow (Wednesday.) I was impressed enuf with this cache that I have added it to our Caches Long Unfound bookmark list and our Extreme Caches bookmark list -- both are public lists. Gee... if Kazoo were just a bit closer to the cache site, I would seriously consider driving down with my friend Taj and tackling this one during my stay in Kazoo! Of course, if I were to do that, then I would need to pack my inflatable kayak and paddles for the air trip, and then pay the airline for the extra luggage... sigh!

 

Anyway, sounds like fun, and I envy those of you living in Indiana who live close enuf to this one to tackle it!
