I must admit that I went with a little trepidation. This was the closest 09/01 cache, and it had MANY DNF's of late. Later another experienced cacher told me he had driven 2x from Toledo and still never found stage 1. Another posted a log that it took him 6 tries!
Off to the final. This was a vastly different terrain from the first 3 stages. I don't want to give too much away, but it was muddy, wet and buggy. TaGeez hurdled the creek (landing in ankle-deep mud), trying to close the gap of the last 60 feet. I moseyed to the right, hoping I could give him directions from my bank. As I settled on a log my iPhone displayed the final as 10 feet away! A twist of fate that he directed me to the final, visible from his bank!What a hoot! After a brief break (it was horribly humid), we tiredly (and doggedly) walked the (very) hilly path a mile back to the car, silly grins on our faces.
