How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

The lat & long given here is NOT the location of the cache. It is the parking lot nearby to the location of the cache.

This cache is not recommended for mobility-impaired folks or little kids and strollers.

PLEASE Don't poke around in and destroy the greenery!! This is a very beautiful area. If you are snooping around live plants you're looking in the wrong place.


“Old time” radio operators before voice communications, used a variation of a code invented by Samuel Morse and developed in the 1800’s, that is made up of combination of different short and long length “dots & dashes” to represent numbers and letters of the alphabet.

Today with the advent of the internet, voice communication, DSL, Wi-Fi, cell phones, etc., “Morse Code” has become a real museum piece. Yet there is still a large group of folks who still love the sound & rhythm of CW code and use it everyday to communicate with other “brass pounders” (as they call themselves), throughout the world in many different lands. Most are Amateur Radio (a.k.a. Ham) operators who have a blast in this many faceted hobby.

Your job is to follow the steps below to hear and decode the Morse code message telling you where the cache is really located.

1. Take you, your brain, and pen / paper to jot notes down on. (Your brain is NOT optional here!)

2. Making sure your computer has a sound card & speakers, and that your computer can play .MP3 formatted files.

3. Click on the link HERE to play the audio file.

If you have done everything correctly you will hear a voice message with the location of the cache in a Morse code message sent back to you. It is being sent at a S-L-O-W 5 words per minute, for you the beginning “code head”, so it will take about a minute or so to completely send the location to you.

If you missed something and want to hear it again, just hit your "go back one page" button and repeat step #3 after the message is sent. Rinse and Repeat…
