How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
ATHENA, virgin goddess of reason, art and literature, was the favorite child of her father, Zeus, and the only one of his offspring permitted to use his weapons, including the thunderbolt. She is the inventor of the bridle, thus making it possible for mankind to tame horses; and of the trumpet, the flute, the yoke and the plow.
You will find Athena's book of wisdom nestled in a tree by a sunlit field.
Team El Fartero presents this tribute to the mythological deities of the ancient world. They may make poor role models, but their stories are never dull and will never grow old. Take the journey and discover the Spirits that may still lurk in the moonlit wilderness, or if not there, at your local Cinema chain!
The Olympic Odyssey consists of 12 caches, each individually crafted and stocked in tribute to their divine inspiration. It is the product of many weeks of planning and preparation, and will bring an afternoon of surprise and adventure to the geocacher who seeks them. Ten of them contain a coordinate which will lead you to Mount Olympus, where the gods have prepared a fitting cornocopia to reward your valor and heroism.
Completion of the series will take about 5 hours, and requires 5 miles of hiking, with some climbing and bushwhacking. Start your journey at the posted Parking Coordinates, where you can enjoy a picnic before beginning your quest.
