Geocache Description:

This is a simple two-stage puzzle that will take you to a recently "uncovered" piece of local American History!   Stage 1 will bring you very close to Washington Rock.


For a complete summary of the history of Washington Rock please read the following article by Phil Reisman:

The rock and the sign are technically on private property, however, both can easily be viewed from the public sidewalk.

Use the information on the sign to obtain the final cache coordinates.

The cache can be found at: N 40 56.ABC W 73 44.DEF
A= The number of letters in the 5th word.
B= The number of letters in the 4th word.
C= The number of letters in the 4th word.
D= The most frequently occurring numerical digit on the sign.
E= The number of zeros on the sign.
F= The number of letters in the 3rd word.

This is not required, but we would love to see you attach a photo of yourself at stage 1 with George in the background!
