Geocache Description:

IGO Cache-of-the-Month Winner!!

When we were young, a lot of us were comforted by nite-lites to illuminate our surroundings and show us the path to where we needed to go. This cache is based on that childhood experience.

Start your adventure by going to the above listed coordinates. From there, walk 40 paces east (approx 80 feet), where you will find yourself in front of my garage. Scan that structure to find your first “guide” (the name of this cache). It will indicate where you should go from there. Follow the directions these guides give you and you will find what you are searching for.** The guides may be only several feet apart, or a few hundred feet apart, but none are more than 500 feet from the last one. Please keep in mind as you search for these guides that there is no reason to walk on or look at private property (with the exception of my garage). All of the guides you are looking for are located on city property, which means - don't be looking at residential trees. Concentrate on public property 'beacons' as you tour the neighborhood.

**What are you looking for? A cache, of course, but to be able to know where to look for the cache, you need to find “THE NUMBER”.

When you have found The Number, solve the following formula and you will have the cache coordinates!!

G=the number of GUIDES you encountered during your search


Cache is located here:

N41° 51.(G*N)+118 W090° 11.(G*N)+150

CONGRATULATIONS to sunluver, Cosmic Cachers and JennyJB for your group FTF!! Sometimes, impatience creates a group hunt!!

Good Luck, and Happy Caching!!
