How Geocaching Works
Beautiful park in a beautiful area, a great destination for anyone traveling through. The cache, however...
We've been trying to create ever-more challenging caches. Since we don't live near cliffs, mountains, underwater caves or other extreme terrain, we're using the variety we have, along with challenges to brainpower and knowledge to add challenge. This is a 3-stage cache. The coordinates get you to the parking lot. From there, you'll need to solve some minor puzzles to get you to the location of the first cache, nothing too hard. When you find the first cache, you'll receive hints for the final cache, which will require more knowledge or research of trivia, history, and mathematics.
People with internet-enabled phones, sharp minds, and time on their hands might be able to find this one in one session. Most will need to work on it and return another day. We really intend for this to be the most difficult cache we can create, so consider it an accomplishment if you can complete it. Children with supervision and adults with steady feet will be able to solve it, but you'll need to put the effort in to have a chance.
There are no long hikes, but the terrain can be muddy, slippery, wet, rocky, or infested with muggles depending on the day/weather. There may be stretches during the winter when completing the cache might become difficult or treacherous due to snowy/icy conditions. The bridges are numbered in the order in which you cross them to reach islands.
The second stage is at N44 21.A3B W089 0C.D0E
A= third digit in Waupaca's zip code
B= first digit in the address of the most famous Victorian mansion in Waupaca
C= first digit in weight capacity of the bridges
D= first digit in the serial number of bridge #2
E= fourth digit in the serial number of bridge #1
The third stage is at N44 21.FGH W089 05.JKL The clues for the final stage are inside that micro container, but here's a hint for one of them:
H concerns two film stars, least known for their roles in "A Reckless Romeo" and "Kid Auto Races at Venice"
