Geocache Description:

This cache is the final destination in the series of Captain Jack caches located in Scott County Park. The coordinates listed are for parking. Seek out the three other Captain Jack caches in the park to obtain clues to find the TREASURE cache.

Captain Jack’s Treasure Cache
Captain Jack is mostly known today as a notorious pirate, but in fact, Jack spent most of his career as a respected sailor and privateer. Jack’s adventures in his later years were largely unsuccessful, leading to a life of stealth and piracy. Prior to Jack’s death by hangman’s noose, Jack buried his loot and encoded its destination in a series of maps, which were discovered hidden in his furniture, and only recently deciphered. I have learned that Jack used three locations to triangulate the location of the TREASURE CACHE. These locations were WRECKS, ANCHORAGE, and SMUGGLER’S COVE. The search for the TREASURE CACHE begins with finding these three locations.
