Geocache Description:

* cache is not located at coordinates above * (Sixth and final cache in the “Daughter Series”). Using the clues from the first five caches, and the riddle below, you will solve for the coordinates of the final cache location. There you will confirm your answer, be able to sign the log (bring your own pen/pencil), and see why I named this the "Daughter Series". The clues are not my daughter. Cache is on private property (ours - feel free to say hello).


Prior to getting introduced to Geocaching late this summer, I spent most of my free time riding my mountain bike and pulling my daughter in the bike trailer while in her car seat. Lots of quality rides for daddy and daughter. While, I have only been into Geocaching about a month now, a couple of weeks in and 25 finds or so later, I came up with an idea for the first series of caches I wanted to place. Well, the time has come to roll this idea out. This is a great cache to cache trek for a nice bike ride to discover some different places my daughter and I traveled together this summer. Parking is limited or not available on some of these caches. Like I said, this is a great biking cache. First to Find for the final stage of the cache is a $10 gift card to Blockbuster so you can enjoy a night at home after a long day geocaching. When you get to the end, let me know what you think of the cache. Do you see why it is the "Daughter Series" yet?

N42 YX.ZVW
