This year’s event will take you back to the early days of frontier law and order in Pacific County, Washington.  Explore historic cemeteries and jail cells, learn about pioneer good guys, bad guys, and real-life midnight raiders and scalawags.  You’ll take a scenic tour of Pacific County and Willapa Bay, finding geocaches in many scenic and historic locations, with a trackable geocoin awaiting following your successful finds!

Finding the special themed caches in this geo-adventure will earn you a collectible event geocoin!  These prized geocoins are sure to be snapped up quickly and supplies are limited, so be sure to register for the event ASAP to ensure your place on the list!
