Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Enter the world of Zorky Rooster to discover secret locations and proceed towards the final prize.

You are an elite cache hunter, sent by your handlers on a secret puzzle-solving mission. You have learned that the distinction between simulation and reality is blurry, and it is up to you to determine when, where, and how to do your field work.

As you board a small fixed-wing aircraft, you are handed a sealed envelope. You hastily open it and read:

Click below when you are ready to start simulation.

It is unnecessary to save your progress in the game in between stages. Teamwork is encouraged, but please keep team sizes to a maximum of 6. Feel free to post your progress with logs. If you believe that you have found a bug in the game, or an issue with the hides or locations, please let us know.

Some notes on the attributes:

: none of the stages are available after dark (duh, grues!)
: woe be to you if you embark upon each trip without the proper information
: while efforts have been taken to ensure safety, please use caution at all times
: all stages are kid-friendly with proper adult supervision
: you'll need a boat
: always be on the lookout for beasts!

This cache has received written approval from the Northern Virginia Regional Parks Authority. NVRPA Parks are open daily, dawn to dusk, please do NOT hunt this cache at night or any other time the parks are closed. Thanks to NVRPA for permission to place this cache.
