Geocache Description:

A fairly easy multicache at Eagle Point Park in Dubuque, IA.

There is a $1 per vehicle fee to enter park. "Eagle Point Park is open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday - Thursday, and 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Friday - Saturday, from the first weekend in May through the fourth weekend in October."

Difficulty and terrain could vary by addition mistakes and direction to cache.

Playground, grills and bathroom close by.

Inspired by my son’s favorite tv show, Phineas and Ferb, this is the first of some kid friendly caches (missions) for the youngsters that, like the show, can be entertaining for adults as well.

Your Mission:

Evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz has launched an evil plan to blow up the bluffs at Eagle Point Park so the rocks will crash down on lock and dam #11, flooding the ENTIRE TRI-STATE AREA!!!

In order to stop the evil plan, you must go to the listed coordinates. Look around (it's within site, but you are not on top of it)...along the sidewalk there is information that will help you solve the following questions. Use the answers from each corresponding letter to fill in the final coordinates...

1) It's 15[A]7 miles above the Gulf of Mexico.

2) Quincy was built in 18[E]6

3) Diamond Jo line steamers started advertising vacation cruises around ????. In $$$$, Diamond Jo moved to Dubuque.

????-$$$$=XX
XX-7= [C]

4)2[&]00 Bald eagles winter along the Mississippi River. &+1= [D]

Enter the answers into the coordinates below (note 0 is the number zero, not the letter o)

N 42.A2.2DC
W 090.A8.EC0

Once you have obtained the coordinates to the final location you must find the box and push the red button. When the red button is pushed, a trap door will open under Evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz, sending him falling into a pile of tickling eagle feathers...but more importantly, out of reach of his “blow up the bluffs” button.

If terrain is in issue, see the hint!
