Yeah. When you stumble into the cave you can ask Mr. Bear if Pokémon was there.

As if finding French Louie's cave isn't rewarding enough.... People actually need to leave things behind there & post the gps coordinates on the internet.

I've done a lot of reading about French Louie.
There's a cave in the Kunjamuck area that was purported to be his, but Louie operated far to the west in the Canada Lake area.
I have read that a hollow birch log was found and supposed to have been an overnight camp near Pillsbury Lake.
Louie the Boy!!!

It's my understanding that he just used the Kunjamuck cave for a night or two when he came into town.

Louie always stayed in the hotel at Newtons Corners. (Speculator)
The Kunjamuck cave is a long walk from Newtons' Corners.
Why would he stay in a cave after walking miles from his headquarters In the West Canadas??
Louie stayed in a hotel in Newtons Corners, got drunk, gave all the kids candy and when the money ran out, he went back to the West Canadas.

As you can see in Setter's screenshot, the cache has been archived. This means it is no longer available. I took a look at the page on geocaching.com and no one had located the cache since 2007 so therefore the cache was archived in 2011. So this cache is long gone...

Now that the coordinates are out there, it won't be long before someone(s) leaves another and lets not talk about the litter that will surely follow.

Reminds me of that time years ago when the former owner/member of this forum posted the location publicly, and shortly thereafter griffity was reported on the cave walls.

I guess that we've not changed that much over the centuries.
The Aboriginals in Australia spray painted their hands.
