Geocache Description:

THIS CACHE IS NOT AT THE POSTED COORDINATES

YOU NO LONGER NEED A CODE TO ACCESS THE CACHE. THE LOCK PUZZLE IS NOW OPTIONAL.

This is a cache made as a semi-ode to my favorite character in "The Office", Jim, who makes fun of Dwight for liking Bears, Beets, and Battlestar Galactica. It's also an excuse to use an awesome cache container. There's no theme really; the puzzles, title, and everything is completely unrelated. Take each part individually!

Optional: The cache also has a lock on it. Solve the puzzle below to find the three digit code.

Code Puzzle:

__ K on a P
+ __ D in a Y
- __ B M, S H T R
- S W and the __ D
- __ S and Y O!

Notes:

The park is open dawn till dusk. All dogs must be on leashes. The walk is on mild terrain, and the cache is an easy find for any level of cacher.

The cache is large enough for trackables and small swag. Please return it exactly to its hiding spot. I'm really proud of this container and don't want it being muggled.

The logbook is a deck of cards on a key ring. Sign, date, and feel free to decorate your card with the sharpie that is in the cache. FTF goes on the ace, STF gets the 2, etc.

Be sure to check out the other nearby caches in this park!
