Geocache Description:

This cache is the last in a series of monthly puzzle caches to be placed in the Ithaca area during 2011. We hope to start a new series in 2012. You can find the first in the "PIE" series here.

There is nothing hidden at the posted coordinates, but they are recommended for parking. You must solve the puzzle below to determine the coordinates of the cache. No late-night caching.

You will be looking for an ammo can with an unactivated trackable "Signal" Tag for the FTF. There are also five pins as prizes for the first five finders who have found all of the other "PIE" caches set out this year (one per cacher, please, and no trade is required). There is a small selection of swag including a nice bison tube for you to set out your own cache (maybe a puzzle cache?) Please re-hide the cache as well or better than you found it. Cache should be accessible in snow up to a few inches ... any more than that we'd recommend waiting.

We've been working on our Christmas shopping, but some of our relatives have put in some slightly demented requests. We still need to buy:

A simulated alligator wallet, green polka dot pajamas, turtlenecks, an indoor plastic bird bath, a pair of teakwood shower clogs, a chromium manicure scissors and cigarette lighter, pounds of back bacon

and: A pink satin pillow that says San Diego with fringe all around it, a hammered aluminum nutcracker, turtledoves, comic books, drummers, lords-a-leaping, and a statue of a lady with a clock where her stomach ought to be.
