Geocache Description:

2 leg multi-cache (1 sign, 1 tupperware) at West Lake Park. There is a wide well-defined mowed trail with mild elevation changes up to within about 50-75m of the second cache, after which is overgrowth with moderate incline.

This 2 leg multi-cache is at West Lake Park in Scott County Ia. Turn into the park from 110th Ave (County Road Y48) at entrance 6. Go about 1 km to the Breezy Pt Shelter and park here. At the above coordinates you will find a sign. Within the engraved text of this sign you will find three numerals (engraved,not written in marker). In the order they appear on the sign, combine these numerals into a three digit number following a decimal. SUBTRACT this number from the following latitude and ADD it to the following longitude in minute units.

N 41 degrees 31.556 min
W 90 degrees 40.250 min

The resulting coordinate will lead you to the cache. The last 75m or so is off trail with a moderate incline and wooded growth. This is a tupperware cache. Original contents include a lantern, batteries, stickers, a card game, a calculator, and other items.
