This cartridge will take you along the flight path of a little known World War II mystery that is still unsolved to this day.
You will need a car or a very creative mind to come up with some bike/bus/walking combo.
The driving will sometimes repeat areas, but you are chasing a ghost.
We hope you enjoy - if you want to double the playing time, you could probably grab about 25 geocaches or so along the way.
The related geocache is here: (visit link)

First Whereigo find using the WhereYouGo app on my Android phone. We now feel like a ghostly yo-yo after the highly convoluted journey we took today. Previously, one week ago at Treasure Island the adventure began. Who knew that further roadblocks, a.k.a. the Nike Women's Marathon would result in a lengthy detour around Golden Gate Park. Took a brief break to enjoy the nearby beach before heading South to continue pursuit of the blimp spirit. After successfully navigating a few more stops, we were ready to attempt the prize. But no!!! It wasn't to be that easy. I reached GZ of the provided coords only to find out that I was to be out some place completely different. Ventured out to find those voodoo items only to be bewildered further by the additional object requests. After a fruitless effort I returned to the cachemobile to enlist the help of the expert finder, my wife. She arrived at the scene and quickly located the second of the objects. The revealed item was already open, apparently the security device was inoperative. To legitimatize the find, I felt it imperative that I find the prerequisite. Eventually located it but if the hint is to be believed, you must be a taller than an average NBA star.
Thanks for the really interesting dirigible history. Enjoyed chasing a ghostly spirit just before Halloween.

Fantastic again. Only saw this last night and came out early this morning for this and my 1st visit to Treasure Island, so thanks for getting me here.
Cool bit of history, infact my hometown Southend, Essex, England was bombed by a Zeppelin during the 1st World War and i remember my nan telling me about the destruction as a kid, only 1/2 a mile from where i grew up (visit link)
I again armed myself with a tablet and phone and only had one problem today, 1st answer wasnt accepted, even though correct, on 4 attempts. Got it done eventually and moved onwards. The driving on this helped a lot as i could charge batteries
All stages were great, been to some before, walked past others only recently not knowing nothin about the history of the area. Got some strange looks from some golfers and decided to walk the last 4 stages as parking can be tough.
Pretty cool gz and enjoyed the stages involved in that, took a rubber blimp. It took me between 2 and 3 hours, but i did walk a fair bit off the last few stages. Like previous logs, recommend it and a big favourite for me. Thanks for a interesting morning and TFTC

FTF with thelins at 11:43am!
This Wherigo was so well put together and just a ton of fun, just like the CO's previous Wherigo (San Francisco's Movie Trail: (visit link) We started it yesterday, but it took us a bit longer than we expected (we are a bit navigationally challenged!) We ran out of time right before the final two stops - It hurt to drive away, so close to the final, but we made it back this morning to make the grab and how nice to find a blank long sheet!
Very, very interesting historical story behind this Wherigo, one that was totally new to me. The views at the starting point are just gorgeous and a few beach stops in the middle added to the beauty. The final was a bit challenging, but in a good way. All-in-all, a fabulous adventure and I highly recommend it!
Thanks for the great fun, caccbag and JBS.
