To solve this puzzle cache, you will need to go to the first location to obtain the information you need to solve the puzzle above – it is a 24/7 spot. The second location “houses” the final and is available during the facilities “open hours” as you must go inside.

A Geocachers Story cache is your opportunity to share your geocaching stories. I found the ultimate "muggle save" location so please take a few minutes to share a geocaching story in the log book. Bring your own pen or pencil please.

This cache was placed for the Geo201 Workshop: Puzzles, Puzzles held on Sunday, October 21, 2007. Special thanks to Marc_54140 for putting together the workshop.

DISCLAIMER: Cache will not hold travel bugs, as I work in the building where the first waypoint is located, I do use this cache to touch down travel bugs for mileage purposes. If you are planning to be in the area during the week, send an email and we can swap!

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
