Geocache Description:

THE CACHE IS NOT AT THE LISTED COORDINATES!

This is 1 of 42 puzzle caches in a series that were created to commemorate GeoWoodstock VIII. There is a Final of this Series that you can find, if you feel inclined to do so. The Waypoint for the Series Final is GC24NBA.


You will need to find the 21 numbers attached to 21 of the 42 puzzles used to create this series. These numbers will be placed on the logbook of the puzzle caches, so WATCH FOR THEM! This cache may, or may not have one of those numbers in it. You will need to have signed the logbook of all 21 of the correct caches to be able to legally claim a find on the Series Final. Good Luck!

I thought it was about time for a tribute cache.

This is a tribute to all of those who created this game ten years ago and to those who by March 8, 2010 had placed over 1,000,000 active geocaches around the world, as well as to all us who look for them and our families that let us (usually).

Since this is a Peace series, this is a tribute to those who can find a use for an ammo can that helps spread delight instead of destruction and a little mirth instead of murder.

This is a tribute to all of those who can still dream of a world without war and to those who have fought and died in the effort for peace and freedom.

This is a tribute to my son and especially to my daughter who has only known three days of her life when we have not been at war or occupied other countries and the hopeful prayer that as they grow old enough, the only wars to fight will be on video games.

Finally, this is a tribute to those who understand that things don't always happen in order and sometimes need to be straightened out, so I figured I'd go for a ride the park. Once I got there, I noted the sign to watch out for poisonous plants. I figured I would grab my flashlight so I wouldn't stumble into some truck drivers & RVs site. I was worried someone might shoot one of the horses in the neighboring field or that dogs might startle them. This time of year to take in the scenic view, bicycles are the fastest to get around, but I thought I may require to go swimming when I rounded the corner of one flooded trail. I don't think I that would be recommended at night except on a motorcycle. Once I got my things in order, it was time to count my blessings.

I would also like to send a tribute to 9Key, GeoRocks, and scooterj who helped immensely with the idea.

8/13/10 - Needed to make a change to the puzzle, but not the final coords.

7/13/11 & 8/6/11 Yet another. Same final coords. Peace, Joe
