Welcome to the PMC Lite!!!
This series was created in response to the many people who wanted a puzzle series, but did not want anything as difficult as the Puzzle Masters Challenge.
This series is meant to be fun and get those cachers, who are not normally interested in puzzle caches, to try their hand at them and realize that they are not as bad as they seem.
It is meant to be fun and entertaining and take you many places in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The caches in this series will all be released sporadically between now and the PMC puzzle event in June.
So have fun, begin to find these caches and collect the clues in each cache you find. They will eventually lead you to the final.
If you would like a list of all the caches in all the PMC series, you can find it here. It is a work in progress, but will contain all the caches and their creators as they are released.
The main puzzle is sort of a hybrid fill in/crossword puzzle. You will need to complete the puzzle by looking up the title of each cache listed below and writing it into the puzzle. Careful attention should be paid to your North, South, East, and West orientation. NOTE: Do not concern yourself if all the words when put into the puzzle will make up correct words. As this is a hybrid and some of the connecting/crossing words will not make up true words.
Once the puzzle is complete use it to decipher the message in of the cache page. It will tell you the coordinates of the final cache location. To do this find the Letter at either the top or bottom of the Puzzle and cross-reference it to the number on the right or left. This will provide you a letter needed to derive the final coordinates.
The final is an Ammo Can located in the woods close to another cache. When completing the puzzle be BOLD and do it in INK.
