Congratulations to The Weasel for FTF!
This multi-cache is #2 in the ‘Curse of the FTF’ Linn County series and centers around the town of Fairfax. We lived in Fairfax for almost 43 years. We hope you enjoy the journey and while you’re in town, stop by the Dairy Queen. You’ll be driving right past it anyway.
Note: If you are coming from the north you may want stop by stage 2 on the way to 1 and 3, if coming from the south stop by stage 3 on the way to 1 and 2.
Final coordinates = N 41 54.ABC W 091 46.DEF
Stage 1 will take you to a sign. On the sign are 2 dates. D = The sum of the last two digits from the older date.
Stage 2 will take you to the entrance of a cemetery. You will need to find the ‘Ure’ family marker. The Ure family was the first to settle in Fairfax Township. Age = year of death minus year of birth (Ignore months, use only the years).
B = The last digit of Margaret Ure's age.
E = The first digit of Mary Ure's age.
F = The sum of the digits in William Ure's age.
Stage 3 will take you to the entrance of another cemetery. If you have read my logs, you know I LOVE cemeteries. You will need to find 2 markers: William L. Serbousek and Albert W. Sankot. William was a long-time barber in town. His barbershop was located in the basement of his home. Albert opened Sankot’s Garage in 1958. His family continues the business.
A = The sum of first and last digits of William L. Serbousek's death.
C = The next to last digit of Albert W. Sankot's birth.
The Final is located on private property with permission from the property owner. You are looking for a regular size container filled with assorted trinkets and gifts. Everything in the container begins with the letter ‘F’ for Fairfax. Please continue the ‘F’ theme. Geocoins and travel bugs are also welcome. Please conceal the container as found.
Parking is available along the road on the east end of the curve near GZ.
