Geocache Description:

Not at the above coordinates!! This puzzle cache will only be around for another month! On February 28th I'll be archiving it to make room for a new puzzle!

The cache container is stuck in ice and snow for a while. Please go to the coordinates, look to the SW and it's hidden in the light skirt about 25 feet away. (In the parking lot and easy to get to)

On to the puzzle -

I worked on the deliciously evil puzzle "Tower Puzzle" last night. I had a lot of fun but it turned out to be solved in a way completely different than I expected.

As soon as I had the correct coordinates I wasn't thinking about running out and finding the cache. No. My first thought was creating a Tower Puzzle Revenge (in the spirit of "Tree Hugger's Revenge" by FSU*Noles.

Have fun!!
