Here's the deal. I was talking with a friend about some caches in the Milwaukee area. I got to thinking about caches I had found there (sadly, very few. For having grown up there, I don't get back there nearly enough!) and remembered looking for one near Gen. Mitchell Airport. It would have been the afternoon of July 2, 2011. My wife and I drove into MKE to pick up a friend at the airport to go to a concert later that night at Summerfest. We had some time to kill when we got there, so we picked up sammiches, and had a little picnic lunch at Mitchell Airport Park, just across Layton on the north end of the airport. Of course, part of the reason we stopped here was to find a geocache! Smile

Now I thought I remembered finding it, but my wife thinks we didn't. She could be right (I hate to admit it, but it's happened before.) Either way, it seems I never posted a log for this cache. Which is odd - I always try to post a DNF or note if i don't find a cache, so I at least have a record of being there. Regardless, there is nothing in my logs list. There is no active cache listed at this park anymore. I don't remember the name, and don't have the GC code.

I checked in my GSAK database, but no luck. I always back up tracks and waypoints from my eTrex when I empty it, but I didn't have it with me that day. I must have been using my phone. I was using c:geo at the time - before I got CacheSense. Also, since then, I have done a factory reset - so everything was wiped out. I backed up a bunch of stuff, but it doesn't look like I bothered with exporting or backing up the c:geo database. I've spent some time looking through profiles of the local cache owners, but so far I've got nothing... Wondering if any of you have either found it once upon a time, or have it hanging around in one of your GSAK databases!

It certainly isn't a big deal. Just one of those little things that won't leave my head, now that it's worked its way in! I guess I'm curious to know what the other logs were from around that time - and if we should have found it, or if it was more likely that we didn't. Not that it really matters now. Anyway, sure would be nice if gc.com would just let us search archived caches!

Thanks,
Joe

Are you certain it wasn't a puzzle cache? There is one located in that park, but I don't want to spoil the puzzle.

I checked it out and thought that might be it at first, but then saw it was archived looong before we were there. Seems like it could have been nearly the same spot, though.

I'm almost positive it wouldn't have been a puzzle. Especially not this one. I could have never done that in the park on my phone! Our friend would still be standing at the airport, waiting for someone to come pick her up! Laughing

Of course, it's possible I hallucinated the entire event...

Well, I guess that settles it! I was hallucinating! Weird. I know we talked about looking for a cache while we were waiting, and I'm sure I must have brought some up on the map in c:geo. I know we had a little picnic at that park and watched the planes fly over. I don't know how I got it in my head that we actually looked for one there.

Well, thank you all for trying!

Now, I'll just sit back and wait for the nice young men in their clean white coats to come and take me away. (HAHA)

Maybe you just inhaled too many fumes from the airport. Laughing

I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning!
