Comments:
All waypoints are permanent fixtures that are easy to get to on flat ground except the final leg. This would be a great one for the kids to help with except maybe for the math and the actual cache.

This cache is year round accessible. Depending on the season, you might get wet - on hot days, it's very likely you WILL get wet. I got my toes wet at the final cache - bring boots or choose your path carefully.

Ignore the decimals and manipulate the minutes only. A calculator might be a good idea.

I had designed this to be hard but my testers made me make it easier - no calculus this time....

I've been past this park hundreds of times but never knew how big it was or that there were so many thngs to do here. By the time you're done, you will have seen most of it.

The first legs are out in the open so you may get funny looks from non cachers. The last two will get you out of sight so you can lose any curious non cachers.

The coordinates above take you to stop one.

Stop One:

How many rings do you see? ______

Add that number plus 40 to the current latitude to find the latitude for stop 2: 43 ________

To find the longitude for stop 2, multiply the number of pairs of rings by 97 and subtract it from the current longitude: 077 ______


Stop Two:


Find the Year. ________

What color do you see? _______

Add the last 2 digits af the year and the number of letters in the color.

Subtract the result from the current latitude to get the latitude for stop 3: 43 ______

The new longitude for stop 3 is 077 48.224



Stop Three:


How many animals do you see?_______

How many holes do you see? (don't count the round ones)__________


The new latitude for stop 4 is 43 11.828

To find the new longitude, multiply the number of animals by 4 and add twice the number of holes.

Subtract that result from the longitude above: 077 _______



Stop Four:


What number do you see? _______


To find the new latitude for stop 5, multiply 68 by the number you found above. Subtract that from the current latitude. 43 ______

The new longitude is 077 48.394


Stop Five:


How many uprights?_________


To find the latitude for the cache, multiply the number of uprights by 5 and add one.

Add the result to the current latitude: 43 _______

The new longitude is 077 48.482.



The Cache (finally!):

The cache is a 30mm ammo can painted black with geocache logos. Please sign the log and trade fair.

Have Fun!

Started this a while back. Took us a while to get the final but finally with the brush down we spotted the final. TNLN. Thanks.

Came over from Crawling Infestation, decided to look for the first couple of stops before nightfall. Found stop one without problems, but the statment about ignoring the decimals threw us a curve. We were on our way to leave to go home and do some pondering, when we noticed part of a different stop. from there, we did some more figuring, and it started making more sense. We ended up finding the final cache. Didn't even get wet, came real close though.
I never knew this park was here, we will come back to let the kids play.
Thanks for the hide.

Finally!!!!

Team Dirtdog and I met up at this cache, our old nemesis, even though we'd struck out several times in the past. At the very least this site was a nice meeting point to start a day of caching! This time was different, though, as we finally got the right values for one of the parts and kept on racking up success from there. The dogs loved all the moisture despite the fact that it was, well, pretty shiny and thick. Almost gave up on the last portion before Rocket sniffed out the box with his superior nose. I'd like to thank Rocket, the Handy Balance Stick, and washable canvas shoes for making this find possible!

Took nuthin, left nuthin, logged my find, and washed up as soon as possible. Thanks for a long-term challenge!

Our third try to find this one. The first time we were wet and cold and had leaky boots. The second time the snow was too deep at the final location. Finally today we had no problem at the final location but we left the coords at home and had to start over. Took nothing, left nothing.

Where to even begin, I'm not sure. I have made at least a half a dozen trips out here with lots of different people (who are all now certain I am out of my mind!) The last time I was out here.. Whenever my last DNF log is.. I was way off in coordinates but in walking around back there I actually passed within feet of the cache, but because night had fallen and I had cut my face in several places after a brush with a thorn plant I didn't see, I ended up calling the search quits right at the very cache location.
So after yet another email with Cenobite I deduced the final coordinates, through no skill of my own. I guess the lesson I learned here is don't overthink, it does me in every time. So equipped with the right coordinates I headed off on this nice and warm spring day. When I left the car the thermometer was pushing 20 degrees! So off I headed. Within 40 feet or so of the cache, as I was walking along, I heard that crinkling noise one never wants to hear in the winter. The ice I was apparently walking on (covered by a few inches of snow) was breaking. Well I headed for a patch of higher ground near by, but not before the hole in the ice claimed my foot. Under the water was lots of muck and goo. In getting my boot unstuck I fell onto my knees, landing both my hands in the freezing cold water. Water ran into my boots freezing my feet as well. Did I mention it was 20 degrees out? Well after getting out of that mess I was about 30ft from the cache according to the GPS, so I figured I might as well try to find it.

After several minutes of poking around turned up nothing I was getting discouraged fast. There was a bunch of snow back there and I dug out everywhere I thought I a cache might be. Nothing, nothing, nothing. So I climbed around and tried to look from another angle. Even though that meant standing in some water, at this point I didn't care, I just wanted to find the cache. I looked some more, and was just about to give up when one of my footprints in the snow got my attention. There was something sticking out of the side of it, the cache! Finally! I signed and stamped the log pretty quickly. I left my brand new signature item, and took the body warmer, which has been put to good use. Also grabbed the two travel bugs.

All in all, it was another great adventure. This cache was the closest to my house, it is now replaced with "Henpecked" I think I will wait to nice dry, warm summer day to attempt! Thanks for getting me out of the house on this nice ..... 20 degree day.

Forthwith this frame of mine was wrenched
With a woful agony,
Which forced me to begin my tale ;
And then it left me free.

I was out caching today and decided to check to see if this was still possible to reach without getting wet after all the rain and snow melt. I am pleased to say it is still possible as long as you choose your route carefully. I didn't even get my toes damp.
For those having trouble, pay attention to the name and what the mariner's lament was when he uttered it. All the waypoints are fixed objects and they are all part of the theme.

The cache is full and still has two travel bugs.

Good luck.

No luck - got a bit confused by the Holes clue, couldn't find the Number after trying two possible options, and of course things went downhill from there - ended up just walking around the final area hoping to spot it, but that didn't work! Oh well, we ended up leaving the park to grab a nearby cache and were successful there, so the day was not a washout. :)

This was one of those caches that I was thinking that the person who placed it could have had a lot of fun watching us look for it. Had a little of trouble with the clue with the holes but overall I thought it was a lot of fun. It is clear that a lot of thought went into this cache. I enjoyed it and am glad Caron and I stuck with it. Thank You!

If I went after this one alone, I would have given up.
the part with the holes really got to me.
But Eldorado wanted to keep going til she found it!
and she found it first, its out in the open but hard to see if that makes sense.Lots of people around,but they did seem to pay any attention to us.
thanks for a great afternoon
