Geocache Description:

This cache is hidden in a heavily trafficed intersection with no ready parking -- so this one is not recommended for children whose hands need to be held on busy street corners!

This is an easy, entry level find for newbie geocachers: The Neophyte.

The Cache: Nathan Hale memorial @ 40°53'2.38"N 73°25'9.47"W, one of several in Huntington. "I only regret that I have but one life to give my country." Some stealth required. This is a small/regular size cache with logbook -- sign the logbook to claim your find. Trade treasures, geocoins and travel bugs here.

FTF prize is a solid brass George Washington inscribed "Washington, Soldier, Statesman, Freemason" coin (reverse: Liberty Bell inscribed "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All The Land Unto All The Inhabitants Thereof -- 1753").

Congratulations on being inducted into the somewhat mysterious, slightly technical, secret society of geocachers as a Neophyte. Your quest now is to learn the secret sign of The Entered Apprentice!

This is number One in a special series of geocaches in Huntington ...

  • The Neophyte: GC1Y8D0 (this cache)
  • The Entered Apprentice: GC1XY64 (a multi stage cache)
  • The First Degree: GC1Y8TK (a multi-cache)
Graduate to higher degrees of this order by uncovering other caches in this series -- coming soon to a neighbourhood near you in Huntington!
