Geocache Description:

This is a brand new kind of cache, never before seen in Tennessee. ChileHead, a cacher in New York, has developed an application for what he has described as an Interactive Geocache. He calls it Intercache. 

Friends, I bring you Tennessee's first Intercache!


Your smartphone will lead you on a Walking Tour of Colierville.  

Simply proceed to the posted coordinates, park your cachemobile and and click the link above in your smartphone's browser.

Follow the instructions on the screen, answer the questions posed to you and, eventually, reach the physical container at the end of your tour.

Tip: Your phone isn't as sensitive as your regular GPS unit. Give it time to settle in. I have set the proximity requirements pretty loose to allow some flexibility, but you have to be within 75 feet of the coordinates at each point to enter your answer.

Notes

  • This is a new way of looking for a geocache. It is possible that you may encounter some problems.
  • I recommend that you do NOT leave the browser during play. At minimum, don't open a new web page. The developer successfully switched apps while playing/testing an intercache, but if you close the browser window, you may have to start over.
  • It's safe to let your screen timeout while walking. When the screen times out, your GPS *should* go off and not waste battery. When you turn your phone screen back on, it might take a few seconds for the app to get your coordinates again.

InterCache is still in Beta mode, and this cache is set up as a beta-test-proof-of-concept. Please don't rush out to create your own just yet. I'll let you know when (if) it goes live. Heck, some of you might find out before I do.
