Geocache Description:

12-12-12 will probably happen only once in our lifetime, but on a clock it happens twice a day!  This multi stage cache shouldn’t take you too much time to complete.  We hope you enjoy the Clocks along the way.

This is a 3 stage multi cache plus a final (final is within walking distance of the last stage). 
Stage 1 - The coordinates for this cache take you to Stage 1.  At stage 1, you’ll need the following info: (Updated - 6/20/2014 Since the site is under construction, you'll need to use the photos in the gallery to get answers to some of these questions.
