Caching in Lodi, Wisconsin


(posted at SnugHarborBay on Sept. 12th, 2011)
Over the weekend we had some GREAT weather - in the 60's and 70's, so we piled into the car with my mom and dad, and headed to Lodi, Wisc. to do a little caching.  25 years ago Louie and I used to go to Lodi every spring for the crappie run.  Then we started going to Missouri and Kentucky, and Lodi kind of fell off our radar.  I've been wanting to take a ride up there, just to look around and see how it looked after all these years.  I figured the best way to do that was to go caching along the way.

First we stopped and my dad treated us to a nice breakfast at The Machine Shed in Rockford, Il..  The Machine Shed is another one of those great mid-western restaurants.  If you're ever there for lunch or dinner, be sure to try their chicken pot pie - to die for!!  After fortifying ourselves with a good breakfast we headed across the border into Wisc.

All total for the day we did 18 different caches and we did a wide variety of them  - several regular caches, a couple of multi-caches, a virtual cache, and an earthcache.  I also dropped off 2 TB's and picked up 1 TB.

Mom and Dad were fast on their feet today.  At this cache we had to record the time and temperature when we were there.


2 different caches were hidden at this park.....

One was on this utility box.....
And this one was hidden by a rock wall....
It was a really pretty little park, with a creek running thru it, a fountain and a waterfall....


  

One of the Virtual caches we did was at this house.  You had to look at all the unusual stuff in this front yard and email the answer to a question to the cache owner....


The next cache was a multi-cache at a cemetery.  We had to find different old headstones and use information from them to determine the location of the cache.....








As we strolled around the cemetery we came upon the younger persons section.  I have never seen such a beautiful variety of grave markers.  I loved how they were decorated and arranged.  Aren't they wonderfully done?  I love this idea!




Come back tomorrow and see how we fared as we climbed Gibralter Rock and cavort with a Pink Elephant.  I promise - no drinking was involved!

Great post, love the grave yard and was fascinated by the younger memorials. Interesting that yesterday I was geocaching in a park in the Cotswold town of Cirencester. Your weather looked much better than mine, send some sunshine over.
