How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The Cache is at the listed coordinates, but you must meet the following qualifications before logging a "Found it" on this cache.

To qualify for this cache, you must have found caches in enough states to make a continuous, uninterrupted line of states stretching from the West Coast of the United States to the East Coast. You can zigzag however you want as long as you get there without a break. For clarification, states on the West Coast would include California and all states north of there; states on the East Coast would include Florida and all states to the North of Florida that are on the East Coast. The map feature on your Profile Statistics will provide the needed documentation to verify that you are qualified. However, if you have elected to not display your detailed statistics and maps, you will need to provide documentation such as a list of your qualifying states and a cache from each of those states. PLEASE NOTE: You do need to physically travel to these States, Exchange type caches are not acceptable.

You are looking for a small magnetic Lock-N-Lock.

This cache is before the trout stream so there's no need to cross the stream for this one. Stealth will be required if someone is fishing for trout here.
