Geocache Description:

This is my first hide, and the title was suggested by my beautiful wife, SeptemberLily.
Stage one is very easy to find. Please take one of the *objects* inside, and let me know if the number of *objects* is below five.
Once you have this *object* you might need to consult the intertubes, so you can figure out the second location. Stage two is also fairly easy to find, provided you've figured out the set of coordinates. You're looking for a small, wooden container.

Original contents:
- iPod-shaped erasers
- Mouse-shaped sharpeners.
- Travel Bug
- Vancouver 2010 Olympics pin
- Log and mechanical pencil.
- There's no FTF certificate here, but I'll send you one, along with a Tim Hortons or Starbucks card. - The FTF Timmy's $10 gift card goes to Mr. Lizardo

Once you solve the puzzle, click here to verify your coordinates

Note: While Lizardo had to jump through some hoops that would earn him a spot in the 1995 movie "Hackers" (or at least, Revenge of the Nerds), you do not need a Blackberry, or any other mobile device. I'd appreciate if you sent me a private message explaining how you figured this one out. So far, I'm impressed at how many different ways people have used to get to the same result!

The second stage was muggled on 04/15, so the second stage has changed locations (about 5m W from the original) - The outer container has also been replaced with a smaller one that will hopefully be muggle-resistant.
