Geocache Description:




"First, I'll make a quick trick brick stack. Then I'll make a quick trick block stack. You can make a quick trick chick stack. You can make a quick trick clock stack."
-Fox In Socks by Dr. Seuss





This is a field puzzle cache. Please come prepared by printing the cache page unless you have a smartphone to see the picture in the field (or a photographic memory).  Take a look at the photo on the cache page.  This will help you at WP1 to solve the puzzle for the coordinates to the final container. Just in case the stickers have come off, you will get the north coordinates from the bricks stacked on the brown base and the west coordinates from the bricks stacked on the grey base. Both sets start with the red brick on the left. Happy caching!

Just a note: On some GPSr's it appears that the final coordinates are in the lake, the Garmin's in particular seem to have this issue. The map seems to be off for this park. So if you have understood the puzzle and plug in your coordinates and see blue in the background, you may want to check things out anyway.





This geocache is part of a series of caches all with Dr. Seuss themes. Inside the cache you will find a part of the coordinates for the final cache GC3XVM5. Once you've found all of the Dr. Seuss caches you'll be able to find You'll Move Mountains - Dr. Seuss Final. Please leave the coordinates marker inside the cache for future finders.

This cache was originally placed for the 2012 WGA Picnic. Pike Lake was the site of GC1323 the first WGA Picnic in August of 2001.

Fox in Socks is my favorite Dr. Seuss book. If you ever happen to run into me at an event and have a copy of this book with you I promise to try and read it out loud as fast as I can. :-)
