Completed the Missouri Delorme Challenge

My Rescuers

This morning the very first cache was a hard one. I had to climb a mountain in Markham Springs State Park. Somewhere up the mountain I lost the trail and had to bush whack to the cache. It was a hard climb. After a couple easy caches I had a real doozy. The Perfect Hillbilly Hideout cache turned out to be quite the adventure. Here's my log message I posted to claim the cache:

This was some more wild adventure. Everything started off pretty good, but I knew this could go arey because I read the first paragraph of the description at the parking lot and realized that I did not have access to the internet and I might not be able to complete this cache. I needed this cache very badly to complete the Missouri Delorme Challenge. We had driven over a 1000 miles to finish this challenge and this was the only cache on the south end of section #55 and I was not sure I would have any better luck with the other caches in section #55 so decided I had to try this cache.
The trip to the overlook and down into the canyon went very well and I took lots of pictures. I really enjoyed this part of the adventure.

The problem started when I got to the cave and there were no rocks to count. I finally figured all the possible coordinates and decided to try one of them. It seemed to fit better than the rest. All of the possible coordinates were over 3/4 miles away. I bush whacked all the way to the choosen waypoint and got lucky. It was the correct waypoint. What a relief. At this point I had figured a better way to meet back up with Mary so I called her. Her phone would not work. I took off walking and happened up on some ladies on four wheelers. They felt sorry for me and gave me a lift back to civilation and to Mary. These ladies saved me several miles of walking and a lot of daylight that I needed desperatly to finish the Missouri Delorme Challege today.

Oh, I did put some rocks back at the cave entrance, but as it turns out they are not in the correct piles to give you a good coordinates.

Thanks for a great adventure. The cache is great and in good condition. TNLN
