How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:

Of course, as is usual with puzzle caches, the posted coords are utterly useless. These happen to take you to the parking lot of the Scottsville rest stop on the Thruway. We promise: that has nothing to do with anything. The final is somewhere in Monroe County.

Rochester has had a recent plague of puzzle caches. Syracuse seems to have been spared the worst of this. But why should Syracuse miss out on all the "fun"? So we've created a puzzle challenge pitting the Rochester and Syracuse caching communities against one another, and may the best solvers win!

Update 07/07/07: Looks like Syracuse did not want to play. We converted theirs to a Multi today. Rochester wins, albeit by default. And thus, the name change.

There are three FTFs up for grabs with this! One for each of the two caches we are hiding at the same time, and one First To Figure out the puzzle itself. Here's how it breaks down:

  • Be the First To Figure out the coords for both caches and email them to us. Once we get a successful solution, we will update both listings and contact the winner on how to get their prize to them. FTF prize #1: an unactivated Signal Geocoin.
    Update: The FTFigure is monkeykat! Congratulations!
  • Two First To Find prizes, one located in each cache: an unactivated pair of TB dogtags.

And of course, Bragging Rights for all FTFers!
Congratulations to monkeykat for FTFind, too!

OK, get busy!
