Geocache Description:

This is a multi-part cache with lots of goodies in the final cache. C
The posted coordinates take you to the first clue.
This cache ends up in Scott County Park.

Final container is an ammo box with 2003 survival calender, sand dollar, yo-yo, kids game, screw driver, jellyfish, keychain clock, etc.

***Note: The original listing used a wooden plaque next to a door of a log building at the posted coordinates. That sign has since been removed, so adjustments have been made to use another sign nearby to those coordinates.

To begin the hunt for Br'er Rabbits Bramble Patch, find a very large nearby sign that contains yellow etched letters, and the outline of a famous person's face etched in white. Use that sign and assign a number to each of the following letters:
A = the total number of letters in the 1st word on the front of the sign
B = the total number of letter 'L's in the 2nd word on the front of the sign
C = the total number of WORDS in the 1st (top) row on the front of the sign
D = the number that is on the BACK of the sign
E = the total number of letters in the 5th word on the front of the sign, PLUS the number of letters in the 6th word on the front of the sign

Then substitute those numbers below....

Part Two: N 41 43. (E-D), (A-C), (E-C).
W 90 31. (A+B), (A-B-D), (A-B-D).
Part Two has a metal plaque on a large stone. What is the first date mentioned on plaque. Assign those numbers to each of these letters:
F G H I _ _ _ _

Part Three: N 41 42. (H-F), (B), (C+D)
W 90 31. (C), (E-C), (H).
Part Three is a stone monument. What is the 2nd date etched in the stone? Assign those numbers to each of these letters:
J K L M _ _ _ _

Part Four: N 41 42. (D-J), (M-B), (F+J).
W 90 31. (M-J), (K), (C+F).
Part Four has Four numbers on a piece of paper in a pill bottle. Bottle is in base of fallen tree. Assign those numbers to each of these letters:
N O P Q _ _ _ _

Part Five: N 41 43. (P-K), (N), (C).
W 90 31. (P-J) (P-N), (Q).
Part Five is in a pill bottle at the base of a small tree. It has four numbers on it. Assign those numbers to each of these letters:
R S T U _ _ _ _

Part Six is the main cache. Worth all the work? Wear long pants and long sleeves.
N 41 42. (T+U), (U), (N).
W 90 31. (R), (R-G), (S+O).

It wouldn't hurt to take some pruning shears along.
