Geocache Description:

This cache commemorates my transition from ABD to PhD at MSU. For the uninitiated, ABD stands for "all but dissertation". I defended my dissertation last month, so I am no longer ABD. I officially "piled it higher and deeper". ;)

The area near the cache is within view of a busy intersection and pedestrians, so super geo-stealth is required. Parking is probably the most difficult thing about this cache. You can park at the nearby Kellogg Center Ramp, which is just north of the cache. But be sure to bring some cash to pay for parking. There are many other caches on campus and you can make a day of it.

Like the dissertation process, this cache is difficult. You are looking for a 35mm film container. To claim this cache, you must log your visit. BYOP, as there is no room for one in the cache. As a courtesy, please let me know the condition of the cache/log. I left two "micro toys" for the first finders. Enjoy!
