How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
The cache is NOT at the given coordinates. The cache is hidden in a small wooded area with parking close by. It deserves a terrain rating of 2 because of a small steep ditch that needs to be crossed to access the cache.
The name BERT means "Bright". Boy, did they ever get that one right!!! I have a wonderful geofriend, BERT, venturer_catt, who certainly lives up to his name. The complex math, calculations or logic problems are never troublesome for him. As a scout leader, he has made tremendous, selfless contributions to his community by guiding and shaping our youth. When we cache together not only do we share an enjoyment of nature, exercise and the game, but I feel protected and safe, for which I am eternally grateful. This cache is a tribute to BERT and a heartfelt thankyou.
To get the coordinates for GZ please do the puzzle below.
On each line, there is a one word hint, to help you identify the last names of nine FAMOUS BERT'S. The number in the brackets after the hint, indicates how many letters are in that last name. One or more letters will be given to you to steer you in the right direction.
Used (9), third letter is C, seventh letter is K
Football (9), second letter is R, sixth letter is M
Politician (8), second letter is O, fifth letter is D
Comedian (9), third letter is U, seventh letter is A
Orchestra (9), fourth letter is M, fifth letter is P
Cabaret (8), third letter is S, fifth letter is C
Medicine (7), third letter is K, sixth letter is N
Australian (6), third letter is W, fourth letter is T
Pageant (4), last letter is K, drop the S off the name to make it 4 letters, just to avoid any ambiguity
The cache can be found at: N45 15. !@# W075 34.$%^
! = pageant + cabaret – football
@ = medicine + used – orchestra
# = football – cabaret – politician
$ = used – medicine – Australian
% = Comedian – pageant – politician

Enjoy, and I sincerely hope that each and everyone of you has a caching partner like BERT.
