Geocache Description:

*** Not at the posted coordinates ***

FTF HOUNDS MN STYLE - GeoPierce (aka First Puzzle)
This was to be my first hide (and I use a 'Dick Tracey' watch GPS so hopefully the coords are good [but I did waypoint averaging]) and puzzle, so I'd loves some feedback (but be gentle)! ;)

Part of the Collector's "FTF Hounds MN Style" series

Twice I've run into GeoPierce while making the FTF runs - he's a staple in the SW Metro area. But not just for FTFs, GeoPierce puts out some great caches, puzzles & series and does a lot of work on the MnGCA website as well. Two things I've noticed about GeoPierce, he tends to use flash a lot in his puzzles and a lot of his caches have to do with his family (I thought GC19A8G - Child's Play was adorable). He does however have a bit of a reputation in geocaching circles... he routinely has to take the geocaching 'walk of shame' - that's right - he doesn't bring his own writing utensil and has to make the walk back to the car to get one if there isn't one in the cache. MinnStars even made him a emergency kit... I hope he still has it as I'm not sure I left one in the cache.

"Alert: The link below will take you to another site not related to - to a flash 'game' in order to obtain further details needed to find this geocache. As the cache owner, I represent that this flash 'game' is safe to the best of my knowledge although the site and flash module have not been checked by Groundspeak or by the Geocache Reviewer for possible malicious content. As a result, you are going to this site at your own risk."

So without further ado, I present a long OVERDUE cache Link to puzzle.

There's an unregistered KB 2000 hides geocoin for the FTF! Good luck!
