Geocache Description:

The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates, which are at the closest major intersection. Look for parking coordinates which are located near Papermill Connector Trail that you will need to use.

An iscosadedron is a three dimensionl shape conisting of 20 identical equilateral triangles.

Your challenge is to construct a isosahedron from the twenty pieces provided with the cache write-up. It may take about twenty minutes. You will need to
1. Print out the two pages with the puzzle pieces.
2. Cut out the twenty pieces.
3. Assemble the figure by taping matching sides together. (most sides are labled with letters)
4. Sixteen of the 60 sides are NOT labeled so they can only be matched as the 3-dimensional figure begins to come together.
5. Follow the red arrows on the icosahedron and the coordinates will be revealed.

I dont know if a caveman could do this, but a fifth grader should be able to.

The cache is an ammo can located on 0.4 or 0.5 mile walk (depending on where you park) that will be along the newly built Papermill Connector trail that goes along Middle Run and by some small ponds.

Hope you have fun and thanks for visiting!!!!



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.
