Geocache Description:


El Dorado is a three part multi with the cache container located at the third point. The first part involves some math; then you're off to find a micro that contains the coordinates to the final location and the small cache. Your hunt begins at a point in El Dorato Park at the above coordinates. This is near the intersection of Greenhill Road and IA Hwy # X, also known As The Avenue of the Saints Hwy# Y. Use the value of 'X' and 'Y' below, along with the original coordinates, to determine the coordinates for the second point as follows: LATITUDE: Multiply X by 2 and add it to 2 times Y. Multiple the result by 1 x 10 to the minus 3. Subtract from the given latitude above. ( N42° 29. - - - ) LONGITUDE: Divide X by 2 and add it to 5Y/3. Multiply that result by 1 x 10 to the minus 3. Add this result to the given longitude above. (W092° 27. - - - ) Parking is available by the recreational trail on Greenhill Road near the starting coordinates. Use care crossing Greenhill Road, but far better to use the tunnel! Cautions: the small wooden bridge that you'll cross going to the second point can be very slippery when wet. (If you don't cross a small wooden bridge going to #2, then recalculate). You may e-mail me if you have a problem and want your second coordinates checked. There is about 10 yards of light bushwacking to get to the final cache. The cache originally contains a log, pencil, a key chain and a pin/button from the Wild Horse bar in Nashville. Enjoy El Dorado Park and play ground; all locations are popular with bikers and hikers so play it smooooth..
