How Geocaching Works

Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

This cache is part of It's a Fizzy Day Event. The cache container is not located at the coordinates. You must solve the puzzle to complete the partial coordinates. This idea was taken from a similar cache in Wisconsin.
You can check your answer on GeoChecker- copy and paste link- as it messed with the quiz format in HTML.
