Geocache Description:


The cache is not at the listed coordinates. There is no reason to go to the listed coordinates to find the cache.


I have been looking at the GrangerFam difficulty / terrain matrix lately and I’ve noticed that there aren’t very many caches in Houston to help us fill out the right and bottom sides of our matrix (i.e., harder caches). I suspect that others may be in the same boat, so I’m trying to help out my fellow cachers achieve their goals by starting a series of, hopefully, challenging caches for those of you who long fill in your matrices and don’t want too drive to far to do it.

This cache is a 2/5. The 2 is for the simple little puzzle below and the 5 is, well, for the fun you will have when you retrieve it.

The cache can be reached without a boat, but if you have a non-motorized boat, this may be a good cache to use it on. Otherwise, you may get a bit wet while retrieving it. However, given the heat this summer, you may want to just swim for it.

Solve the below to find the final cache coordinates.

Congratulations to TeamThung and OneStepCloser for FTF and a very inventive method to get the cache!



I’ve added a coordinate verification so that you can be sure of your coordinates before you make the trek to the final. Good luck!

You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com.
