Giriando: This series needs to be replaced, the puzzles are missing or lost and some containers are broken.
I want to thank everyone who did this series.
I hope to replace this series this fall with a new set (So you can all get new smiles out of it!).

Geocache Description:

Welcome to The Riddler Series!


This cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. You need to find the first five caches in this series and solve a field puzzles in each cache to determine the location of this cache.


Riddle me this, Riddle me that, who is afriad of the big black bat*
Riddle me this!

The Riddler has stolen this cache and has given this clue for Batman to find it!

Riddle me this Batman:

Find cache number 5. Solve the field puzzle contained in that cache and it will give you the location of this final cache. NOTE: You must solve the field puzzles in caches 1-4 before going to cache 5.


NOTE: You will find a bridge at N41 23.799 W73 20.712 which you take you back to the parking area.


I would like to thank the following people:

  • El Nimrod who gave me the idea for one of the puzzles.
  • Guy Peterson from the NFA who gave me the permission for placing these caches.
  • Josephine H. Holcombe who donated this land to the NFA.
  • GEL who writes all the cache page poems for me!

Holcombe Fact:
The Dana-Holcombe House's name has its source in two legacies. "Dana" is the maiden surname of the lady of the house, Jane Dana Vouros. "Holcombe" honors a dear friend of the Vouros family, Josephine Holcombe. Josephine was a believer in dreams, in this dream, and was philanthropic towards this endeavor. The Dana-Holcombe House is a rebirth of the hospitality experience in this location. The Yankee Drover originally stood at this property for 131 years, but was destroyed by fire in 1981, and construction on the Dana-Holcombe house began in 2004 to continue the historic legacy of hospitality and service in Newtown.

Congratulations to:
And Sister on 1000!
Sonoluminous on 1200!

Three, first to find for woodct624,
Who could ask for much more?

“Bazinga!” yelled Mr. Wood.
Before sunset, they knew they could.

Team Mumu came along next,
Four, five and six they did best.

Riddle me this, riddle me that,
Who's afraid of the big black bat?

Woodct624 and Team Mumu are not,
and six, first to find they've got!
