Geocache Description:


The cache is not at the posted coordinates.

 

For my first cache I thought I would try making a puzzle cache. I love solving puzzle caches but am not necessarily good at them. I am constantly walking around the house repeating odd things over and over to myself like “Pierre Seingaite” till my wife is ready to strangle me.

 

I thought it would be a good idea to look at past puzzle caches I have solved for inspiration.

 

I thought of “An Odd Little Practice” but a new puzzle didn’t come into focus.

Then I remembered “Modern Art” … Nope, no artistic skills here.

OK, what about “Florida Story” but I remembered that I don’t have Photoshop.

Hmmmm, “Fed Second” – No way! That’s as close to the law as I want to come.

I pondered the “The Black Hole” which almost solves like a science fiction adventure. Nahhhh,  too spacey.

Hmm… maybe “Art Babe” or “Café Babe” - too easy to be labeled a sexist.
Silicon Valley Treasure Hunt“ - Way too much work for a 1st time puzzle.
¡Hola Fonero!” – I’m not bilingual.
French Connection” - See ¡Hola Fonero!
Far and Away“ - Too much walking to place the cache.
500 Server Too Busy“ - I see these type of screens way too often to make this fun.
Octal Fair”.  Numbers … uuuggggggghhhh!
ReMorse on a Road to Nowhere“ - Who do you think I am, The Rat?
The Man in the Middle” - Not a sports guy.
 

I guess I’ll just have to keep thinking until I come up with something different.

Something I haven't seen yet..............

I've got it!

As this is my first puzzle cache and hide, the difficulty and terrain are my best guess so I would appreciate any feedback.
