Went lookin' yesterday.........

Went looking for Rob's stash near Dundee, Ill. yesterday. I'm in Bartlett
so I thought
I'd pack up the kids (5 and 2 yrs old) and go on a "treasure hunt". We
tried the route
coming in from the South and got to within 3/4 mile (according to the Ol'
E-Trex) but I
thought there must be a better way in. Swung around and tried to find a way
in from
the north, all the while with the kids yelling "go this way, no, go that
way!". Followed
the arrow from road to road ("Penny" for your thoughts, Rob or is it Major
Healy?). Got
to within .17 miles but the rain started and I didn't want to drag the
youngens through
the mud (Mom might get mad). I'll try again on a nicer day.

I'm not sure how tough this find is going to be but, so far, I was able to
get pretty close
while driving with the kids. I like the idea of possibly adding a
"toughness" factor to the
stashes (i.e. Walking/Hiking distance from a road). I plan on taking the
family with me
whenever I go looking because they seem to enjoy it but I don't think they
would if they
had to go hiking 20 miles to find it. I realize what the spirit of the game
is and I don't
want to change that but it would be nice to know that I have a good chance
of finding the
"treasure" and not disappointing the kids. Maybe a quick e-mail to the
stasher would be
all I would need to do. Just a thought.......

Great game!
