Geocache Description:



****IMPORTANT CACHE WARNING****
THERE IS A PARTIALLY OPEN, ABANDONENED WELL, IN THIS AREA. WHEN I PLACED THE CACHE, I APPROACHED FROM THE TRAIL, AND NEVER NOTICED THE WELL. I RECOMMEND THAT DIRECTION. THE WELL IS APPROX 5-10 FEET TO THE RIGHT OF THE STAIRS LEADING INTO THE ABANDONED FOUNDATION.

THERE IS NO REASON TO GO NEAR THE WELL TO FIND THE CACHE!!!

FOR SAFETY,LOCATE THE WELL BEFORE YOU START LOOKING FOR THE CACHE.

Now to the fun part...

Congratulations to Kidsni for the first to find. Geocaching is a great way for families to spend time together, and I love that you kids cache with your grandparents. Congrats again, and thanks for sticking with this one.

This Cache was placed at Birdseye Hollow Park. The coordinates listed are not the actual cache, but will provide information necessary to find the cache.

As with my Sanford Cache, we picnicked here quite a bit while I was growing up. The park is a great place to take your kid's in the summer. There is a lake for fishing, trails for hiking, picnic tables, bbq pits, and a playground for the younger kids.

This cache is meant to be tough. From the puzzle you solve to find the coordinates, to the actual cache location. The puzzle has been uploaded as a picture in the gallery for this cache. You can click on the link below, if you would like to check your puzzle results.

The cache is well hidden, so please return it as you found it. If young children are with you, keep them close, as there is an old abandoned foundation at ground zero. Great spot to stash a micro, but be prepared to think outside the box.

The actual cache coordinates are: N4a° 2b.cde W77° 08.fgh

Once you solve the puzzle, the letters above will be replaced as follows.

Column A connecting with Row d = Letter a.
Column E connecting with Row c = Letter b.
Column L connecting with Row h = Letter c.
Column G connecting with Row g = Letter d.
Column I connecting with Row o = Letter e.
Column K connecting with Row j = Letter f.
Column N connecting with Row m = Letter h.

The last piece of the puzzle can be found at the coordinates given to park. While looking at the sign, g = the number of letters in the second object of the legend.

One more little bit of info. The quickest route to the cache is by following the trail that starts at N42° 22.214 and W77° 08.815. You may want to wear your boots on this one. The trail can get muddy at times.

You can check your answers for this puzzle by emailing me. I will respond as quick as possible.
