This last Saturday I hooked up with a fellow geocacher from Berlin to do a cool series of caches. His name is CodeJunkie, and he is a great guy with great geo-instincts. We successfully hid a total of eleven new caches along the section of the Mascoutin Valley Trail that runs between Ripon and Berlin. Ten of the caches contain a clue that you need to pair up to get the coordinates for the final. The five hides on the Berlin half of the trail are owned by "CodeJunkie", the other five + the final on the Ripon side are owned by me,"MuddyBottoms". These caches just went live this afternoon, and already they have all been found by two cachers by the names of "BakRdz" & "jstajlr". These two gentleman unknowingly each completed half of the caches, and teamed up to get a CO-First To Find on the final...well done. Not only did they find them fast, they did it in the rain, and a few of them in the dark! That's what its all about!
I hope everyone enjoys this series, and takes in all that the great trail system has to offer.

Not your normal C.I.T.O. event
I was out this afternoon checking out an area where I am going to place another hide. While I was walking through the woods I spotted a ziplock bag, which I picked up as usual. Normally I just throw them in the pack to be thrown out later, but this one was a little heavier than the usual. The contents of this bag were not at all normal. This bag contained a glass pipe, a bic lighter and another smaller bag containing remnants of marijuana.
Speaking of new cache hides
I am working on 3 separate caches here in Ripon. Keep your eyes out for 3 new Multi-Caches. Each one will accent a different nature trail system in the Ripon area. I expect to be done with these in the next one to two weeks. My goal for these is not for difficult finds, or super tricky puzzles, I just want to show people the great places to check out other views of Ripon.
