The Prowler is one of my two favorite cars (the other being the Dodge Viper). The background for this Wherigo geocache goes all the way back to my first multi-stage cache ("prowlin4snakeeyes"). Sadly it had a limited run, but a few months later, second iteration was created ("prowlin4snakeeyes II"). However, due to excessive maintenance of all the stages over the course of the 10 months it was active, I archived that cache. But with the concept of Wherigo, I can have a multi-stage cache without all the maintenance. Thus it is time for a third iteration in the "prowlin4snakeeyes" series.
This Wherigo will take you around Georgetown (8th Avenue) Community Park. This is a nice little park tucked away in Georgetown Township. The main features of the park include a public beach, walking trail around the lake, fishing area and a pavilion with tables. The pavilion area is open to the public and cannot be reserved.
In this Wherigo cartridge, I will share the story from Concept to Production to the End of the line for Plymouth (& Chrysler) Prowler. The zones relate to the colors the Prowler was produced in, and give highlights of each year of the Prowler's history. I hope you enjoy the walk in the park today. It is recommended to save often while playing the cartridge. If you have done either of the other "prowlin4snakeeyes" caches in this series, you will know what to expect when you get to the final.
NOTE: Terrain is relatively flat, you just cover a lot of it (That is why it is rated 3 stars). Please allow approiximately 90 minutes to complete this Wherigo.
Is logging my result any different for this cache?
Unlocking the cartridge on Wherigo.com is not required, but it would be greatly appreciated. After you've completed the cartridge you should see a "prowlin4snakeeyes.gws" file on your device. On your Garmin Coloradoor Oregon you will find it in the Wherigo/Saves directory.Upload that file to the Wherigo website. You may also review the cartridge by choosing Write a Log.
Logging your results here on geocaching.com is no different than any other cache so no changes there. However, you get a new icon on your profile page.
Once you successfully complete the cartridge and find the geocache, write a log entailing your adventures by revisiting the cache page.
Please note - the development and player software is still in alpha stage and you may experience issues running it
When you get to the final, you will find a special gift for you for completing this Wherigo Adventure.
Feel free to take one - I will keep this replenished while supplies last.
This is a themed cache.
Please do not leave travel bugs, coins or other swag in the container.
Thanks for playing our 2nd Wherigo cache.
