Geocache Description:

A quick puzzle done at your desk or just sighting it in the field.

The Story (Because what's a puzzle without a story?)
This is a story of a hapless driver. This poor soul was speeding westbound on Route 125 one morning when an Andover Police officer clocked him going over the speed limit. Fortunately, perhaps, the driver made it to the city line before the Andover officer could catch up. Unfortunately, that officer radioed ahead to Wilmington and there was a patrol car just past the city line waiting for the driver.

The driver had just a little bit of luck on his side because on that stretch of Route 125 Andover and Wilmington do not border each other. There is a 508 foot stretch of North Reading. So exactly halfway between the two towns he stopped. Since neither the Andover nor Wilmington officer could cross the city lines into North Reading, the hapless driver was able to stop and hide a cache.

To Find The Cache
Take a close look at the two sign posts and figure out the exact cords for each. Calculate a direct line between the two. Find the midpoint of that line and there you will find the cache.

Good luck and good caching,

Loch Cache and the Hapless Driver
