How Geocaching Works
This is a multistage cache with several virtual caches, and involves solving problems, stated and unstated, as you progress to the final goal. This multistage cache will lead you on a quick history of a “building” father of the area.
You will need a pencil for this one!
This cache must only be done during daylight hours.
The listed coordinates lead you to the “ending” so that you can start your search. Please be respectful and use only your eyes. You will not need to leave the clearly maintained “path”. In this situation the masculine “start” is what you are searching for.
Make the substitutions and you have the coordinates for the next stage.
Year = ABCD
N 42 01.775 – [(AA) x 2]
W 093 36.244 + [(ABC x 2) – B]
1892 is the date of origin for this structure and would be the original domicile for the object of our interest. The # for street deliveries is what you are after.
This is private property and the information that you desire can be obtained from standing on the public sidewalk facing east.
Number = XYZ
Make the substitutions for the next stage.
N 42 00.Y(X-1)Z
W 93 37.Z(Y+1)(Z-1)
Five generations have defined what this “establishment” is all about.
Stage #4 (final)
N 42 0(Year – 122)
W 93 40.(Year - 1540)
This location of the cache is placed in an area that the descendants made public land for all to use. Think of the area as an example of the raw materials used for either final resting, domicile, or means for accumulating wealth.
The easiest access is from the north.
NOTE: New cache container that can hold most trade items.
