Geocache Description:

**********NOT AT COORDINATES ABOVE**********

Dr. L. Hadley

Professor Emeritus

Plymouth, MN

Dear Dr. Hadley,

I am pleased to report that the team's mountain research expedition was a resounding success. The weather was magnificent, our sherpa guides were incredible, and the treasures and artifacts we brought back are sure to astound you. You'll hear all the details at the society meeting next month, of course, but in the meantime, here's a preview of two of the exciting items we'll be presenting.

The first item is a "packing assembly for sheet material." Our sherpa guides really knew how to pack the sheets in tight! The packing assembly is a box-like container having a front wing panel for picking up the last form or sheet of a package. At least the bottom or last form is sideways positioned with respect to the lie plane of forms or sheets within the package. It's all very exciting, let me tell you. This item was especially handy on the north slope of the mountain, and we've brought it back with us to show you next month.

The second item quite likely saved all of our lives. It's a device for "nuclear magnetic resonance detection of geologic structures" and has a variable sampling window which increases sampling efficiency by allowing the system to optimize the sampling interval, thereby maximizing the amount of data which can be obtained in a series of data samples. Had our favorite sherpa not detected all of that nuclear magnetic resonance on the west slope of the mountain, it easily could have been the end.

Before closing, I should mention a funny story about our favorite sherpa, a story that you may find interesting. He's a bit embarrassed to admit it, but he is losing his hair. Amazingly, however, he is using a "method of concealing partial baldness" that divides a person's hair into three sections and carefully folds one section over another. I've never seen anything like it - it's very effective! We'll be glad to show you next month. Nuclear resonance, concealment of partial baldness - add those two together and you're really on to something, let me tell you!

I have to run, but we look forward to sharing everything with you when we see you next month. The success of the expedition should become patently clear. Thank you again for so faithfully supporting our expedition and research efforts over the past year.


Mr. T. Jefferson
