Zero or 2181 Miles To Go Multi-cache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is all about the posted coordinates which are approximately one mile from the parking coordinates. It is a spot where a chosen few have answered the call of the wild. The southern terminus is the official starting point (or ending point if you start in Maine) of the 2181 mile Appalachian Trail. I have always dreamed of walking this trail and now my journey has officially started. Well at least one mile of it.
Due to the current Geocaching guidelines concerning the AT, a multiple was the only way to get you to the Southern Terminus. Just know that the journey to and from the terminus are your payoff on this one. However an ammo box has been placed as convenient as possible to your journey. There is no need to leave the trail at any time (meaning DON'T BUSHWACK TO THE FINAL). The ammo box will be accessible from your car as you get ready to leave. To get the final coordinates you will need to get some information off of two different plaques at the posted coordinates.
Final Coordinates: N34 38.XXX W084 11.YYY
XXX: XXX = Date - 1548. Go to the plaque where the blue and white trail blazes converge. Take the Date on that plaque and subtract 1548.
YYY: YYY = Date - 1114. Go to the other plaque that has elevation on it. Take the Date on that plaque and subtract 1114.
Make sure to write down the information and re-check your math. The final coordinates are not too far from the parking coordinates just off the road.
Congrats FTF - ELJLYLE and Athrilla TheHunt
Small note: As required by the USFS for caches hidden in the Chattahoochee National Forest the cache is prominently labeled as a geocache and the label includes the GC3406Q waypoint number and the owner's e-mail address. Enjoy!
