Geocache Description:

Short Multi in unmarked territory - you need to do some simple math at first stage. Final is a standard size ammo can.

Ever since this bridge was built I wondered what is purpose was - but as a curious outdoors man I also wondered how to get there... Your first challenge will be to find a route to stage 1 (the bridge). No need to trespass - and absolutely positively no need to stop on the parkway! There are several approaches on public land - all of them well defined - make your pick - choose wisely. The way I came in can be done almost in shorts and flip flops - but some are different...

The first stage is the plaque commemorating the building of the bridge. You need to answer the following questions (I recommend also reading the very interesting information about the parkway itself on the nearby information board):
A= Year the bridge was built - 2000
B= Number of letters in the name below the quote (first + last name)

Final location: N41 18.A18 W73 49.(B*4)9
The same rule from the beginning applies to the final: No walking/stopping on the parkway, no trespassing. If you find yourself doing either of these you didn't solve the math part right..
