LPCs. If you have been caching for more than a week, you know what I am talking about. They are the quick and easy caches that we all love (or love to hate). They are the ideal target for the cacher on the go, on a numbers run, or with VERY limited time. They can keep your caching streak alive with minimal effort. I have claimed a few of them without even getting out of my car… just park close enough to the Lamp Post, roll the window down, pull up the skirt, grab the cache, sign, and return.

So, how to take this to next level, while lowering the physical effort level even more? A SIMULATED LPC! With this hi-tech computer simulation, you can get your name on a SIMULATED log WITHOUT LEAVING YOUR COMPUTER. You will experience the THRILLS and CHILLS of a real LPC hunt while in the comfort of your own home. No need to even take the effort of rolling down your car’s window!

Just click the virtual car keys below to get started, navigate your way through the city based upon your trusty simulated GPSr, get to GZ, and investigate the simulated Lamp Post to find the simulated cache!

Once you have found the SIMULATED cache, you will be given coordinates to the REAL cache. No worries – I won’t make you hike, the cache is right where you think it should be. If you make the effort to go find the REAL cache, you can sign the REAL log and claim a smiley below. Have fun!

Many, many thanks to Puttzy for translating the concept for this cache, originally written as an executable program in Visual Basic, into a web-based format.

Congratulations to TEAM Z for FTF on the Simulation AND the Real Cache!!!!
