Geocache Description:

The final is NOT at the posted coordinates! You will need to solve for:
N 43° 57.ABC W 088° 40.DEF



This a hide for the whole family. Be sure to bring a camera and your own pen/pencil. The clues can be solved from your vehicle and the final should be a short accessible hide for kids with lots of goodies.

You may be familiar with the children’s' book character “Flat Stanley” Lambchop, who is flattened paper-thin by a bulletin board. He soon is sliding under doors and visiting his friends by mail. But this story is about me, Flat Stanley’s lesser-known cousin, Flat Jack Foundit. I came upon a similar fate when I tried to squeeze between two rocks while geocaching. My new shape makes it a challenge for me to cache by myself, but I still love to hide them!


I also love to take road trips and play “I Spy.” On this trip, I spied six landmarks on my drive along Country Highway FF that runs for 12.3 miles from Highway 21 to Highway 26 in Winnebago County. To find the final, you will need to follow my trip and see if you can spy the same landmarks to answer the questions below.


A= last number of the year on the sign
B= first number in the address of the house across the street
C= first number after the decimal in the W coordinates when on the road
D= first number of the address of the house across the street (on Cty. FF)
E= second number minus the first number in the address of the house across the street
F= first number of the address where this is found

Make sure to take some pictures from your visit at the final to post along with your log of your trip. Also, please take care to place the final back the way you found it so the next cachers can enjoy the adventure. Happy Hunting!
