Geocache Description:

You are looking for a frog trying to figure out how he just got across eight lanes of speeding cars without getting squished.


Frogger was a 1981 arcade game developed by Konami, and licensed for worldwide distribution by Sega/Gremlin. The object of the game was to direct frogs to their homes one by one. To do this, each frog had to avoid cars while crossing a busy highway and then navigate a river full of hazards.



Finding the location of our hero, Frogger, involves a two part puzzle.

To find the first location, you must play the Frogger puzzle below. It will give you a location in the center of eight lanes of traffic at N42° 21.B W071° A.C where:
   A is the number of moves necessary to solve the frog puzzle when there are 3 frogs on each side of the pond.
   B is the number of moves necessary to solve the frog puzzle when there are 13 frogs on each side of the pond.
   C is the number of moves necessary to solve the frog puzzle when there are 30 frogs on each side of the pond.
The puzzle is set up to solve for answer A. Note that the puzzle doesn't actually allow for number of frogs needed for answers B and C, so you must extrapolate. Do not go to this location or you will get squished!

From that location, Frogger hopped southwest eighty feet crossing four lanes of traffic and jumping a fence to get to the closest safe resting spot. Park across the street from the final coordinates.


You can validate your final solution (not initial) with certitude.
