Geocache Description:

This is a 2 stage cache that will bring you to the site of the Meeker Island Lock and Dam. The posted coordinates will take you to a sign along east river road that gives information about this Historical Site. Use the following information and formulas to calculate the final location of the cache.

XXX = (Slope % of the Old Wagon Road) x (30) - 148

YYY = (Oldest date in the text) - (1562)

N 44 57.XXX W 093 12.YYY

This cache is in a much friendlier location than my previous cache here, but the hide is much more difficult. I'm starting the difficulty at a 4.5 because I think it is. I will adjust it if necessary. Please log all DNF's so I can get an idea of the true diffculty. I would also prefer that all hints go through me in order to keep this cache a challenge.

Though the final is in a much better location, I still would not suggest doing this cache at night. Please use common sense and don't move any landscaping. I did have a bit of trouble with accuracy while getting coords, so note the terrain rating during your search.

After you DNF this cache, or find it if you are lucky ;-) Go to the bottom and check out the dam itself.
