Geocache Description:

A Marine-grade mid-size camoflaged tupperware..

This is the fourth of four in a series – the object is to figure the coordinates for the fifth and final cache below by substituting a number , found inside the first four caches , for a given letter , as such :

Ryan’s Treasure Chest -- N. 42* 54.5(A)(B) W.087* 58.1(C)(D)

Cache 1 : Kyle’s Krazy Krock of Kitsch
N. 42* 54.508 W. 087* 58.239
A = ?

Cache 2: Nya’s Mystical Wonders
N. 42* 54.247 W. 087* 58.204
B = ?

Cache 3: Esme’s Extravaganza
N. 42* 54.249 W. 087* 57.949
C = ?

Cache 4: Christopher’s Mess Kit
N. 42* 54.501 W. 087* 57.971
D = ?

These five caches are named after Great-nieces and nephews of mine , and each are detailed in their own Geo-cache webpage .

This cache is named after Christopher , Kyle’s brother, my oldest Great-nephew , married , a father himself , and a proud member of the US Marine Corp , stationed in North Carolina – soon headed for Germany , so I’m told .

Check out the miltary-related gear initally requisitioned for this mess-kit , and feel free to contribute , or exchange , similar type goods , relating to any branch of the Armed Forces !
It’s the American way !

This entire series resides within the Victory Creek Special Park in the city of Franklin ,
an undeveloped area park ( no facilities ), that does , however , have a system of cut-grass pathways maintained within it, ROUGHLY CONNECTING ALL CACHES. About 84 acres in size , it is largly open prairie , reverting to that state from earlier farmland , with some scattered woodlots , bordered on the south by Victory Creek itself , and on the west by Pleasantview school grounds and the future Pleasantview city park . I’ve hiked & mountain-biked this place for a while, and it’s a rural ‘hidden’ gem in the city , home to racoon,deer,coyote,Sandhill Crane and , now , the occasional lucky Geo-cacher ….Take good care of our park & Enjoy !

Another parking and access point is at the southeast corner of this Special park at the intersection of Victory Creek drive and Bridge view drive –the city owns an undeveloped lot between the fire hyrant and the pond .. follow your nose north and then west around the pond to an old farmer’s bridge traversing Victory Creek.

Congrats and a hearty HUZZAH! to First-to-finder YOUNGINS3 !
