Geocache Description:

People have asked for a phone number to call to make an appointment to paint the ball. The owner's names and telephone number are: Mike and Glenda Carmichael 765-724-4088. There is also a link to their web page below in the *HINT* area.

You have to see it to believe it!

The coordinates will take you to the door. This cache is INSIDE the building. The owners ask that you please seek this cache in the Evenings or on Weekends. If you come during the day, they may or may not be around to let you in.

Groundspeak has informed us that it is no longer allowing additional requirements such as color of paint or the number of the paint layer.
Finding this cache is simple. Make an appointment. Park, ring the bell on the building, add a coat, and sign the log. For the integrity of the cache, post the number and the color of the coat of paint you added if you feel like it. (ours was 20,164 and purple). The container itself is an ammo box, with pen & logbook. The cache is fully stocked and ready for trades. FTF receives the t-shirt of their choice.

This ball of paint has been featured on many television shows and is in the Guinness Book of World Records.

It all started with a baseball, and now it has over 26,000 coats of paint.
