Geocache Description:

It's the year 1847. The new Oak Grove School has just finished its first round of classes. It's a fine opportunity to visit the teachers and try to get a diploma by proving yourself to the teachers. You can choose any four subjects you'd like. All you have to do is make a passing grade (83%).

This Wherigo geocache requires a GPSr or cell phone equipped with a Wherigo Player. Please download the cartridge to play.

When playing this cartridge, please remember that nothing will usually happen when you enter a zone. Upon entering a zone, you'll see the teacher. Select the teacher, say hi, and choose their questions in any order you'd like (please note your Wherigo Player controls the question order, so #1 could appear at the bottom of the list; there isn't anything I can do about it).

The questions themselves were derived from a school primer published around this time as well as common knowledge during the era.

The original final was a nice ammo can. Now, it's a black waterproof box for cell phones. That is, it's only waterproof if you make sure the log book's baggie does not lay across (and bend) the orange waterproofing seal. It does not go without saying to take care how you repackage the cache.

Important for Garmin users: When answering a question a Garmin Wherigo Player will not advance to the next question (a bug due to the difference between Wherigo's spec and Garmin's implementation). Once you answer the question, select the cancel command in the upper-right corner. Your answer will still be counted and you'll be able to advance to the next question.
