Geocache Description:

SCOUT - The Eagle Scout Series

This is the first in a series of Boy Scout themed caches.

The cache is not at the posted coordinates.

I hope you like hiking. You will be doing a lot of that during this series of caches as you work your way toward finding the Eagle Scout Cache. I got an idea for this series after finding the Heart of the Desert cache series and I enjoyed the shape that was made with the placement of caches. But since these caches will be in the moutains, I decided to make them puzzle caches so I could place them whereever I could get to.

SCOUT-Each young boy begins as a Scout. The requirements are simple. To find this cache, find the answers to these questions and then build the coordinates N 39 58.ABC W 111 41.XYZ

What is the youngest age you can be a Scout? A=
  • 8 Yrs ==> 8
  • 9 Yrs ==> 7
  • 10 Yrs ==> 4
  • 12 Yrs ==> 1


What is the oldest age you can be a Scout? B=
  • 12 Yrs ==> 0
  • 13 Yrs ==> 6
  • 15 Yrs ==> 4
  • 17 Yrs ==> 8


Does the parent or guardian need to sign the application and health form? C=
  • Yes ==> 0
  • No ==> 5


How many words are in the Pledge of Allegiance? X=
  • 29 ==> 4
  • 30 ==> 5
  • 31 ==> 6


Y=Number of fingers held up in the Scout Sign plus ONE.

What type of knot is a square knot? Z=
