Geocache Description:


This is another “Tour” cache from geocach4meritbadge.

The cache is not at the posted coordinates.

Neon is a chemical element with symbol Ne and atomic number 10. It is in group 18 of the periodic table. Neon is a colorless, odorless, inert monatomic gas under standard conditions, with about two-thirds the density of air.

You will be looking for neon signs within the pink rectangle of the attached Neon Elmore Tour map. The signs you are seeking are on the attached Neon Elmore Tour worksheets. Once you find each sign, follow the instructions on the worksheet to come up with the final coordinates.

The neon sign may or may not be turned on at the time you are completing this cache. While this cache could certainly be completed in the daytime, the intent is for it to be a night cache.

You will not need to go inside any businesses to complete this cache. This tour can mostly be done from your vehicle, except for finding the final container. Use the buddy system, where one person drives while another person looks for the signs. As always, be careful out there!

We are going to tell you what the container is and (sort of) where it is located. That way, you will not be at GZ too long attracting attention in this highly mugglicious area, even with the bouncing beam of a flashlight.

The final coordinates will take you to a parking spot, one of many along this corridor. Once you get to the parking spot, face north. Right in front of you, there is a row of three pine trees, perhaps having been planted at the same time. The container is a camouflaged pill bottle located in the pine tree on the east end. The container is on the north side of the pine tree, in the center of the tree, about 5 feet high.

Bring a writing utensil. Container includes only a log, with no room for swag or trackables. You must sign the log to claim the cache find. Please obey parking rules and please, no spoiler logs/photos. Keep it as fun and challenging for the next person as it hopefully was for you!

CONGRATULATIONS to drjrm3 and drjrm1 for co-FTF!

Cache is located at: N 41° AB.CDE W 090° FG.HIJ
