Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the posted coordinates but is less than 2 miles away

Most of us are familiar with a chirp™ geocaching beacon but I recently discovered this new bird.

At this time, those who have access to an IOS or Android device will be able to solve this puzzle as rated (2.5-stars). Those who are “resourceful” can also join in the fun with a 4-star solution. For extra credit, do both!

Cache is sign only. Don't forget to bring your pen.

Please leave the camo in place.
