The cache is not at the posted coordinates. If it were, it would be a pretty unsafe and ignorant place to put a cache!
An obscure read my mind, guess what I’m thinking puzzle….Again? Well, what else to do for a cache with the temperatures and the snow falling than a puzzle. So... cozy up by the fire with some hot chocolate or a hot toddy and get solving.
General rule of thumb for solving this puzzle -- there was a farmer had a dog and bingo was his name-o has little or nothing to do with solving it. BINGO is child’s play. This one takes an older seasoned cacher with a little more experience under the belt!
As for the hide, I know some people don’t have the spine for tall tree climbing, but in the winter, an ammo can under a pile of sticks and a foot of snow has just about the same degree of difficulty. You can start thanking the gods in geocaching heaven that I’m not that cruel in either of those departments. Once you get the coordinates, the find should come easy.
Second rule of thumb is that you can’t come knocking on my door for solutions (even if you are one of my clever cyber stalkers that know where that might be), because I’m not giving any and I have a large dog set to attack mode and although I’ll give him a bone, I’m not throwing you one… well, at least for one week!
Cache is located at N43 xx.xxx W077 40.xxx
The final is a small lock&lock. BYOP. Once you've located it, add your name to the log book and when you write your online log/note for the find please include the number beside your log entry. Please only one cacher per line in the log book. There is a "lammy" for the FTF.
50 bonus points for independent solvers of this puzzle, and 25 bonus points for independent solvers after a hint is posted.
Also, the OC is running out of clever ways to hide "clues" to the bonus cache, so this cache like several before it, has no hidden clue to the final.
There will be 10 bonus points for the first 3 cachers to contact me with the title of the R.E.M. song that has this cache's title as part of a word in the lyrics. Obviously the OC likes R.E.M. That's just a fun fact for you!
Happy solving and safe driving!
Congratulations to StrivingforCamelot, nebula5, and jfw26 for being the quickest 3 to answer the bonus question correctly, the word "bushwhacked" is in the lyrics of the R.E.M. song entitled "Drive."
Congrats to Sase Mc-T for being first to find. 2000 points for cachers who sign in #0!
