How Geocaching Works
The cache is NOT at the published coordinates. This cache is along a biking, walking trail in Cedar Rapids. The trail is closed 10 PM to 6 AM. Please observe all trail rules and hours to ensure we retain the privilege of placing caches.
There are those that say caching is trivial. This cache should prove that to be true. This is a single stage micro cache but you must determine the coordinates by solving the trivia questions. Questions may result in number (use as is) or letters. Convert letter to number, A=1, B=2, etc.
A. In the 1950s, before Fox, there was a fourth TV network that was not successful and ceased broadcasting in 1956. Convert the first letter of the name of this network to a number.
B. How many of the Seven Dwarfs names did not end with a “Y”?
C. Beginning in the 1950s Bud Collyer hosted for 11 years, and became synonymous with one particular TV quiz show. What was the name of this show? Convert the first letter of the title.
D. What was the first name of the actor who played the piano player in the movie “Casablanca”? Convert the first letter of his first name to a number.
E. First name of the Best Supporting Actor award winner for the 28th Academy Awards (held in March 1956, featuring movies of 1955). Convert the first letter of this actor’s first name to a number.
F. The last digit of the year that Alaska and Hawaii attained statehood.
