Geocache Description:

Scavenger Hunt Beside a Sleeping Giant

This is another of Thot's MicroVirtuals.  Because Virtual caches are no longer accepted I use Micro caches to lead you to these displays. 

The first stage of this cache is in Rocket Park at the Johnson Space Center.  There's a real Saturn 5 rocket here -- the rocket that took men to the moon.  There are also rocket displays from the Mercury and Gemini manned space programs.

You must drive past the Space Center guard shack and pause to tell them where you're going.  Don't let this intimidate you, Rocket Park is part of the Smithsonian and open to the public at no charge.  The hours are not posted, but I was told the area opens at 8AM and closes at 6PM. The guard who told me this seemed confident about the closing time, but I got the feeling he was guessing about when it opens, so if you're adventurous you can try earlier, then report the results in your log.  The final location is about 3000 feet (driving or walking) from the first stage.

Final Location
N 29 3A.BCD
W 95 0J.ECF

If not using a smartphone you will need to print this picture
and take it with you.

Bring a pencil.

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.


While visiting the giant, don't miss the Texas Longhorns out back.
