How Geocaching Works
This is a Wherigo cache and requires a Wherigo player to run the cartridge. The posted coords are the start location for playing the cartridge. The cartridge itself requires no driving. The final cache is within 5 miles.
This Wherigo cartridge is based on the book "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" is a children's story by Dr. Seuss written in rhymed verse with illustrations by the author.
The Grinch, a bitter, grouchy, cave-dwelling creature with a heart "two sizes too small", lives on snowy Mount Crumpit, a steep, 3,000-foot (910 m) high mountain just north of Whoville, home of the merry and warm-hearted Whos. His only companion is his faithful dog, Max. From his perch high atop Mount Crumpit, the Grinch can hear the noisy Christmas festivities that take place in Whoville. Annoyed and unable to understand the Whos' happiness, he makes plans to descend on the town and deprive them of their Christmas presents, Roast Beast, Who-hash and decorations and thus "prevent Christmas from coming." However, he learns in the end that despite his success in taking away all the Christmas presents and decorations from the Whos, Christmas comes just the same. He then realizes that Christmas is more than just gifts and presents. Touched by this, his heart grows three sizes larger; he returns all the presents and trimmings and is warmly welcomed into the community of the Whos.
You are on an adventure quest to save Santa's reindeer that have been kidnapped by the Grinch and return them to the reindeer stable. But beware, not only is the stable locked (you'll need to find the key) but the Grinch is also running around the lands too, and he doesn't like you very much. There's also a cheer potion to help you on your adventure. .
