Old Fishing Bear woke me from my slumber to snag this one. He got up three times in the middle of the night to check to see if it had published yet. Going a little over the speed limit down US 30....someone else was pulled over by the County Mounties. Better slow down. Went past...had to do a Hey! Success! Thanks for the fun!

Ok, that really has nothing to do with snagging this tag. We just Loves to be punny. Although, in the song these lyrics were Lifted from, the artist is thinking of a skirt from the night before. Just as only one person can snag this tag, so there is only one SKIRT in the lot. Aaaannndddd GO!

It appears the tag went missing. 2 cachers with numerous finds did not spot it. The Host was very obvious. We are sad that this happened in our first game.


cron publish 3 months 4 weeks ago 006 - Benches on the Avenue

Tinley Park, IL, US location_on N 41 34.550, W 087 47.057

Tinley Park's Benches on the Avenue public art program has become one of the Village's most popular attractions, drawing thousands of residents and visitors annually to Downtown Tinley. The colorful benches feature the work of both amateur and professional artists and provide spots to rest and enjoy the fantastic creations while strolling through town.

Artwork is based on a different theme each year, and benches are on display from mid-May through October. Each bench is sponsored by a local business or individual, who takes possession of it after the program has ended.

Well, well....If you take a stroll to admire the benches, check out the sculptures; you may find one that fits the mold to hide this tag! It isn't actually etched from stone. Sure looks like one, though.

AThrilloftheHunt and I were in Joliet, Illinois enjoying donuts at our favourite little donut shop when we noticed the notification for this tag. Hmmm... should we even try? Well, sure, why not?!? We set sail. Pulled into port an hour later and, lo and behold, the tag was there waiting for us! Suh-weet! Can't wait to see you all at Summerstock!!!

So I’m at The Speedway, gassing up for a day trip to Chicago and I realize it’s 6am, check the email, check it again! It can’t be!! I’m 15 minutes away!! Tell Muggle Judy we have to make a little detour, she shakes her head, off we go! I love this place, now I love it more! Snagged the tag!! See you at Summerstock! This never happens to me!! Off to Chicago!!


cron publish 4 months 8 hours ago 004 - Home on the Range - Bailly Homestead

Howe Rd, Porter, IN, US

For those in Porter County, Indiana, Bailly Homestead is well known. Scores of local school children come here on field trips to learn about local history. A beautiful place to go on a nice hike, it also a great place to snag a tag in order to earn yourself a Summerstock geocoin. To find the tag, you must find your way to the Bailly Home. Once you've found the old house, you can begin your search.

Now if I may make a suggestion, I would concentrate your search somewhere near the building to right of the house. If I could make just one more suggestion, it would be to concentrate your search near the base of the Southwestern corner of that building. But hey, these are only suggestions. Look wherever your heart and your little toesies take you.

Happy hunting!

Seen it wasnt grabbed yet so made the 40 min drive in hopes it would still be there. Pulled up to see a car in the parking lot and my heart dropped. Searched and at first glance I didnt spot it. Heart dropped again. Searched again and BOOM.


cron publish 4 months 1 day ago 003 - This Little Piggy - Oinks ~ New Buffalo,

N Smith St, New Buffalo, MI, US

This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy ate ice cream, this little piggy had none. And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way to Oinks to find a Summerstock Snagthetag!

In order to find this tag, you must find yourself in New Buffalo, MI and in search of a local favorite ice cream palor. Once there, work your way towards the backside of the building and look around at all the unique signs and memorabilia. Amidst it all, you will see an old style gas pump. This could be a great place to begin your search for the snagthetag. There are bushes on either side of the pump. Personally, I'd take a peek inside them. And if you happen to see a blue lock-n-lock container, I'd suggest picking that up and running for the hills before any other snagthetaggers come and snatch it from you!

I was hoping that one of these would be dropped close to my home base. This one was close enough. After a 45 minute drive down some country roads, I found “Bill”. I was staring at his and reading the clue and I kept looking at the museum. Then it dawned on me. I use to hear the phrase, “my right, your left.” almost everyday during PT formation. With that in mind, I went to the right spot. I look forward to seeing you all in a few days. Bucketto


cron publish 4 months 2 days ago 002 - Tip the Canoe - Tippecanoe Battlefie

Battleground Ave, Battle Ground, IN, US

The Tippecanoe Battlefield Park preserves the location of the Battle of Tippecanoe fought on November 7, 1811.

The 16-acre site of the battle was deeded to the State of Indiana by John Tipton, a veteran of the fight, on November 7, 1836, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the battle. The site was used for a number of major political rallies during its earlier years; those most significant being on May 29, 1840 in favor of William Henry Harrison's bid for the White House attended by 30,000 people.

It was designated a National Historical Landmark in 1960.

To snag this tag go talk to "Bill". Rumor has it you'll see the light if you look to HIS right. Don't get bushed by overthinking this one.

Woo hoo! The little cacher and I saw this pop up right around the time we were waking up and thought we had a good chance. He even skipped breakfast and I skipped my morning coffee!

Monroe St, Valparaiso, IN, US

Your ice cream is so good, you should take a bow.

You have so much to see along your wall,

murals of dairy products big and small.

There's even a snagthetag hidden nearby,

for you to spy with your little eye.

A cow is not what you seek,

but a dog instead that cannot speak.

Once you spot him, look below.

Then snag the tag and go go go!
