Geocache Description:



presents
VANITY PLATE GEOCACHE

FEAR NOT, THIS IS NOT A PUZZLE!!


This is a simple 3 stage multi cache where you use information at each of the stages to determine the next set of coordinates.

In order to log this cache as found, you now only need to find the final container.

On 4-4-2009 Groundspeak ammended the conditions for ALR (Additional Logging Requirement) caches.
The additional logging requirement is no longer required in order to log a find on these types of caches, and found logs cannot be deleted if the ALR is not completed.
A signature in the log book is suffecient. The ALR is now optional to the finder of the cache.

This change affects this cache.

It is my hope that in finding this cache and logging your find, that you would continue to do the "additional logging requirement" for this cache


The "additional logging requirement" for this cache was for you to post a picture of your vanity plate or create one using this website and post it.


(basically choose a desired plate design, enter your letters/numbers, then "Check Plate Availability".
To save the image. Right-Click on the image and "save image as". Then upload this image with your log entry.)

This cache is designed to see what kind of vanity plates cachers have or would like to have for their geomobiles.

This cache is purely meant to be fun.


At the posted coordinates above (Stage 1) you will find an address (that relates to the theme of this cache) - this will be AAA

Use that address to find the location of Stage 2.

Stage 2 is located at

N42 51.759 + .AAA
W085 51.979 +.AAA

At Stage 2, you will find a date - this will be BBCCDDDD
(convert the word to a two digit number for the month)

Use this date to find the location of Stage 3 (the final).
 
Stage 3 is located at
N42  50.934 + B.BCC
W085 50.113 + D.DDD

The final is a small cammoflauged container with a cache-themed FTF prize in it.

Ample parking is available near Stage 1.
 
In fact you should be able to leave your geomobile there and complete this cache.


CONGRATULATIONS TO DOROALRY AND STICK1983 ON THE SHARED FTF !

ENJOY THE FTF PRIZE
