Pearl Forrester: The MST3k Series
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is one of a 13 cache series celebrating my favorite television show, "Mystery Science Theater 3000." The first 12 in the series are stand alone letterbox hybrids that will contain a single number and letter combination that can be used to find the last, Bonus cache. You can do however many you'd like, but you'll need to do them all to get the lucky 13th. All caches are custom built and painted and contain a handmade stamp. I hope that you have as much fun finding them as I've had making them. As with all letterboxes, return the stamp to the container for all to use. Many of the containers could be a little fragile, so please take your time retrieving them.
"Mystery Science Theater 3000" or MST3k for short, aired from 1989-1999. It grew from a public access show on KTMA in Minnesota to a full production on both Comedy Central and the Sci-Fi Channel. Created by Joel Hodgson, it was a derivative of the old Buggs Bunny cartoons with silhouettes in front of the screen making fun of really bad movies. The show had a huge cult following during its' airing that still exists today thanks to the internet. As was suggested during many of the commercials, "Join us!"
This cache features Pearl Forrester, played by Mary Jo Pehl. Pearl is the mother of the evil Dr. Clayton Forrester. Early on she would make occasional appearances on the show when she would drop by to check on her son. Mostly she would talk of what a disappointment he was and go out dancing with TV's Frank for "Thirsty Thursdays" and all the margaritas she could down. Later on, she took over the family business of world domination when Dr. F was turned into a starchild. After going through a time warp, Pearl picked up Professor Bobo just before Mike Nelson aided in the destruction of Earth. She then picked up Brain Guy when Mike...well, ditto to the Observers planet. Together, they chased the "Satellite of Love" through time and space around the universe continuing to force feed Mike and the ‘bots really bad movies. Pearl found herself in ancient Rome for a while until finally settling down at Castle Forrester, her family's ancestral home.
The cache is located in the Pootatuck State Forrest in Fairfield, CT. Parking is at the end of Pine Hill Rd and the cache is a very short walk up a woods road. It would be difficult to find in more than six inches of snow, but not impossible with the hint. There are other caches in this area, so check them out if you haven't already.
