Geocache Description:

This cache location was inspired by geowyz, and is our first cache. Our gnome from the Elves Twelve cache is still guarding our porch.
Less than 3/4 mile round trip, most of it is easy walking. May be muddy after heavy rains, but water shouldn't be too much of a problem. The area closes at 6:00 in the winter, 8:30 in the summer.
The final cache is a slim ammo can, and includes a camera to take a picture of yourselves (please leave the camera!) Hope you enjoy!

The listed coordinates will take you to an object (the tallest one around) in a county park with sets of numbers on it.
The numbers we are interested in is a set of 4 numbers together. Using the uppermost set of 4 numbers (wxyz) in the following substitution to get the coordinates for the second leg :
29 26.wzy 96 00.yAB
A = w - 1
B = Z + 1
These coordinates will take you to the second leg.

At the calcuated coordinates, you will find another one of the same type. Again, on the tallest one, use the uppermost set of 4 numbers (wxyz) in the following substitution to find the final cache :
29 26.CDE 96 00.ywy
C = w-1
D = x+1
E = y+1
These coordinates will take you to the final cache


Some Tips:
W96 is the same as -096.

To Enter these coordinates using the official Geocaching app (IOS):

  • while navigating to the first coordiates in the map mode, press the 3 dots on the top right of the screen
  • select Add Waypoint
  • change name, latitude, and longitude, and press done
  • you will be returned to the map with a flag showing the above newly added waypoint
  • Click on the flag, and select set as target
  • continue to navigate (using map or compass) to the newly added waypoint
