It's time for Stage 5 - Don't Blink.
This is Stage 5 in a cache race challenge that will take place over the Summer of 2009. You don't have to find the previous cache in the series to find the next one, but you have to find all of the cache's to claim the prize. The first 3 geocachers to find every stage will receive a prize. For those that find the cache in the qualified time frame there is a Bonus Prize for the cacher that can write best log on gc.com, it can be funny, creative, tell a story, or demonstrate sportsmanship. Write something that will make it worth reading, not just TFTC! Each stage will increase in either terrain or difficulty challenging your geocaching skills. You don't have to be in the top three in every stage, you simply have to find all the previous stages before the final time expires, but you want to complete the series in the top three (and I love come from behind stories). The final location will be a puzzle that you will have to solve. You can read more about the 2009 Race for the Cache and each stage at my website Geocaching with Team JNLE4.
You will receive keys to the puzzle in each cache that are critical to finding the final cache. Good luck and have fun.
Stage 5: Don't Blink
Don't blink or you may just miss this cache. In the 6 years I have lived in Columbus, I have driven north and south on Riverside Drive countless times. And it wasn't until about 18 months ago that I noticed these locations. Even knowing that they are there you may drive right by them and have to to turn around.
Please be carefull at each stage as Riverside is a very busy road. I have increased the terrain difficulty to account for the difficulty in reaching gz. I have listed parking coordinates for stage 1, stage 2 is up to you, but don't park in the private driveway across from the last stage.
