Geocache Description:


This multi cache will take you on a nice walk around Olympic Centennial Park. Olympic Centennial Park is a 21-acre park located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Less than two decades ago, Centennial Olympic Park's neighborhood was a run-down part of town. That all began to change on the day Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games CEO Billy Payne gazed out his office window and a brilliant inspiration came to him - to convert a multi-block eyesore into a glorious gathering spot for visitors and residents to enjoy during the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games and for years to come.

***Stage 1***
The above coordinates will take you to a small plaza where you will meet the Allen’s. While standing in this plaza, count the number of Allen’s (reliefs) you see here. A=the number of Allen’s at this location. To find stage 2, complete the following:

N 33° 45.(A times 2) 6 (A minus 1)
W 084° 23.5 (A plus 1) (A times 1)

***Stage 2***
You are now standing in front of a statue. B=the number of shoes being worn by the runners. To find stage 3, complete the following:

N 33° 45.(B plus A) 6 (B times 2)
W 084° 23.(B plus 2) 0 ({B times 2} minus 1)

***Stage 3***
You are now standing in front of the most famous doctor in all of Atlanta’s history. C=the number buttons on the famous doctor’s jacket (jacket only). To find stage 4, complete the following:

N 33° 45.(A times 2) 2 (C minus 1)
W 084° 23.(B plus 2) (B minus A) 6

***Stage 4***
You are now standing of the founder of the modern Olympic Movement. D=the number of birds in this statue. E=the third digit of his birth year. To find the final stage, complete the following:

N 33° 45.6 (A minus 1) (C)
W 084° 23.({E times 2} minus D) (B plus 1) (C)

***Final Stage***
You are looking for a micro container that holds a log only, so BYOP. It is not big enough to hold any trackables anymore. Please use extreme stealth at the final stage, as to not reveal its location to muggles that might be nearby. This cache is meant to be found, but the final location can present a difficult hunt. If you search and would like a more detailed hint, please send me a message and I will respond ASAP.
