Difficulty 3 - Terrain - 3.5
Stash is located in the Cape Ann area, the terrain is rocky and hilly, I would say this would be considered an average difficulty stash to find.
ELGIN HAS BEEN CHANGED (as of 4/29/04)! FIRST, the stash has been changed to a good size tupperware container. The difficulty rating has been lowered by 0.5 and the terrain has been raised by 0.5 (by popular demand!) SECOND, I added two other secondary stashes in the area to guide you on a tour of the woods around here. You can get the coordinates of the first stash under the lid of ELGIN. when you get to the first stash it will give you the coordinates to the second stash (which takes you closer to LMRK#1...see below.) Log-in at each one and enjoy the tour! This could tack on 1-2 hours depending on your skill level. TO FIND ELGIN: If you are interested in following a path I will provide you with a few waypoints to which you can navigate. If you want to bushwhack...well, just park at Lmrk #1 and go bananas.
Lmrk #1 42deg 34.115 70deg 49.309
Lmrk #2 42deg 34.128 70deg 49.383
Lmrk #3 42deg 34.295 70deg 49.337 (take the way less traveled down...Be Careful!!!)
STASH 42deg 34.274 70deg 49.307
hint: It's like looking under a car.
