Geocache Description:

Now is your chance to save mankind and ensure we can continue to cache in this forest.


Humans have a way of colonizing every corner of the planet. The local flora and fauna do not always appreciate our encroachment. Whenever possible the local wildlife tries to get rid of the human interlopers using the Natures Automated Defenses. At the posted coordinates you will find evidence of human settlement that was in this location until 1927. During the intervening years you can see how much of the human settlement has been reclaimed by the NAD. Researchers of this phenomenon have labeled the local human displacement here as the NAD ‘27 event.

It’s time we took back this area for human use. Unfortunately the NAD is still in effect and must be defeated before we can reclaim this area. We do not want to urbanize the area but we need to keep the NAD for overrunning the trail system. It won’t be easy but the NAD can be defeated by hitting two weak spots in the overall NAD system with a highly coherent beam of light. The weak spots will appear brighter then the surrounding area.

The last humans left here knew how to defeat the NAD but it was 1927 and the required technology was not even invented until 1959. There are two sensors in the local NAD that detect the presence of humans. You must first disable these sensors. When a sensor has been defeated it will display an error code. Retrieve the error code. The error code was meant for diagnostics, it is not displayed for very long nor is it very bright. It may be helpful to dim some of your lights during the attempt to disable the sensor. Due to the demands of the overall NAD, diagnostics are not available during the day. The last humans knew others of their kind would be back to reclaim the land so they built a vault to hold information leading to the location of the NAD control panels.

Information retrieved from the vault will help you find the control panels for the NAD. Find the control panels and deactivate the NAD. With the NAD deactivated you are free to enjoy the trails in this area. The NAD ’27 event will serve as a warning that we should not take nature for granted. Working with nature instead of against it will help ensure future generations have access to all the resources we enjoy today.

About this cache

This cache was prepared using modern technology. Even modern technology is only as good as the instructions you are given on how to use it. I've taken the time to collect helpful coordinates and to provide meaningful instructions. In the event you want to verify the accuracy of your coordinates, always a good idea, please see the check sum below. There is nothing worse than having the wrong coordinates for your search, good luck!

Pay attention to the terrain rating. The area here is flat and there is no need to climb anything.
