Northern Illinois Cache Series
This is a series of caches that we put out in Northern Illinois for your caching pleasure. There are six legs and one final. Each leg is also a stand alone cache so please log your find. On the log of each cache there is a short number riddle with a letter in front of it. A B C X Y Z. Please bring a pen and paper to copy this down. If you forget, just email me and I will hook you up. These were taken from a Mental Flexibility Test. This test does not measure your intelligence, fluency with words, and certainly not your mathematical ability. It will however give you a gage of your mental flexibility and creativity Few people solve them all at once and many reported getting answers long after the test had been set aside- particularly in unexpected moments when their mind was relaxed. These are all well known actual items like the example below.
12=M. in a Y. (would be 12= Months in a Year) Another is 7= W. of the W. ( 7= Wonders of the World)
When you solve the riddle, take the last letter and match it to the corresponding letter in the alphabet. A=1 B=2 C=3 and so on. As with the example above, the R in year corresponds with 18 so we will just use the 8. These numbers with fit into the cords for the final……Enjoy
Have a nice walk along the bike path.
