Geocache Description:

there is no puzzle to solve;
it is only classified as a puzzle cache because it originally had an ALR (alternate logging requirement) when it was first published in early 2009 under the guidelines in effect at that time.

Port Jervis is a town rich in history. This cache, easily accessible via at least two different modes of transportation, takes you to one of PJ's most interesting locations.

There is paid parking near the cache, but there is plenty of free parking available so there's no need to go spending any money for this find. Unless you're riding the train, I suggest approaching GZ from the nearby Burger King. Finding the cache should be easy, especially if you keep in mind the terrain rating and its size; retrieval will be a little more difficult, especially if there are muggles around.

This cache is located at the posted coordinates; it is only listed as a puzzle due the additional logging requirement it once had. (In accordance with Groundspeak's current policy on ALRs, this "requirement" is actually more a suggestion.) You can log this find just by finding the cache and signing the log. However, the real reason you want to come here is what else you'll see here, so please also include a photo of yourself and your GPSr with at least one of following:

  1. the historical informational sign near the cache;
  2. the largest historical vehicle nearby.
Please refrain from identifying the large, round object in your log.

Allow yourself a little time to read the historical sign and turn the table back to a different time.
