Geocache Description:

This 279 acre facility features 158 acres of freshwater quarry lake. The lake, with depths ranging from a few inches to 20 feet, boasts good fishing for bass, bream and other fresh and saltwater species. The lake also supports an array of wildlife, including the American Alligator. A variety of birds including Ibis, Egrets, Herons, Cormorants and Anhingas will offer good bird watching and photographic opportunities.


This cartridge is designed as a walking tour and is meant to be done as such. Since this Wherigo is designed in a linear fashion exiting a zone and then re-entering it will trigger the the question to reappear.

Due to the sometimes unstable nature of the Wherigo format, depending upon the equipment used, it is recommended that you save your game periodically as you are progressing.

The necessary Wherigo cartridge will not come with a download of this cache - you must visit http://www.wherigo.com to download it.

The cartridge is designed such that you cannot complete the game from emulator play. The game is designed where you must input info into a text box or answer a multiple choice question in order to see the next screen or "zone". If you aren't actually at that place, you won't have that information. Good mapping and research might allow you to discover the necessary information from home.

If you don't have a device that will play a Wherigo cartridge, here are a couple of options. 1) Play on the emulator as far as you can - generate some coords for the spot (mapping is your friend) go get the info (or perhaps research for it), then go home and continue the game; or from the location, call a friend at a PC with the emulator and cartridge with the info to continue the game -you'll get the next screen.

Some notes on how this Wherigo Geocache cartridge works. The cartridge has 6 zones (akin to 6 stages in a multi-cache). The first zone, will be active and visible from anywhere. The next zone will become visible and active when you're in the Maine
zone. "Active" means that your device is calculating a bearing and
distance from your current location; "visible" means it shows on your map screen. You'll see it on your locations screen when it is active. If you select it, it will show like a waypoint "go to" - with distance and direction arrow. Once you arrive in a zone, there will be a question to answer before the next zone becomes active and visible. Again, you have to select it from the locations screen to become your next "go to". Zones become inactive as you exit them, to save CPU power; too many "active" zones slows the Pocket PC or Garmin as they calculate distances and bearings to each active location. The geocache location becomes active and visible only after you've correctly entered some data. Coordinates are provided for the geocache. Zones are approx 100' by 100' in this cartridge and are this large to allow for error. Specific information is given for each zone to allow you to complete any question. Once you've entered the cache zone (and completed the Wherigo game) you might need to exit Wherigo and use your GPS, having loaded it with the coordinates provided. The back button will not scroll you back through screens! it takes you back to the main screen, a listing of available locations, tasks etc. If you want to retain data (coords, completion code) you should write it down.
