terrkan78: The final has a big homeless camp that's too close for comfort. I couldn't come up with a different location for the final, so I decided it's time to archive.

I'll leave the cache in place for another three months or so in case anyone solved it but hadn't logged the final yet.

Time to take one of these other cache ideas floating around my brain and turn it into reality. :)
