Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Scrabble Series!

This is 1 of 7 caches located on the Brunot Preserve located off Taunton Hill Road, Newtown CT. Cache 7 is a puzzle cache based on the first 6. The preserve is open year round but is closed at night. No motorized vehicles; dogs allowed on leashes.

Start (*)


All caches are near the YELLOW trail and NO caches are IN stonewalls.

To find the final puzzle cache (number 7), you will need to find the first six caches (number 1-6) in this series. In each sequential cache you will find a picture of a Scrabble board taped to the log book where one of two players:

Do you feel lucky Heathcliff, well do ya?
Clint Noble

If Clint played with all the powers of his puny being, he could not score as many points in 80 years as I could in a day
Heathcliff Wonderful

has added one word to the board. Thus, each cache is considered one turn of play.

Your job is to determine the point value the player has earned for that turn. You need to remember the player and their scores to find the final cache.

To find the location of the final puzzle cache:

  • Add Clint Noble's total score to: N41 23.216
  • Add Heathcliff Wonderful's total score to: W73 21.597
