Geocache Description:

Welcome to Hunter Park!




Hunter Memorial Park in Douglasville is an 83 acre park with a variety of ways to entertain yourself. There are ball fields and tennis courts, batting cages, a playground, a walking trail around the lake, and even a community center (with an arcade!) In earlier years, there was even a train that would take children around the lake. (See the Terror Train cache nearby.) This Intercache will take you on just over a 1/2 mile hike around the lake over the path of the old train ride and you will visit 4 different locations along the way.

*** YOUR DEVICE MUST HAVE INTERNET ACCESS AT THE CACHE SITE ***

 

Note: This is an Intercache, a brand new way to complete a geocache

Put away your GPS, and get out your smartphone/tablet. Enjoy yourself.

What's an intercache?

An InterCache is an interactive geocache. An intercache is a new way of creating a mystery geocache, similar to a wherigo geocache. The biggest difference is that the entire geocache can be developed, edited, and played on your mobile device's browser with no software required to download!

How do you play?

First, make sure you have a compatible device. Make sure the GPS on your device is turned on. Go to www.intercaching.com/intercache/ on your device's browser and select the test button. I recommend doing this outside for best results. You should see your current coordinates as well as the estimated accuracy. If you see something reasonable, you are all set. If you get an error, you may need to enable the GPS and other geolocation settings on your device. You may also not have a compatible device.

Play 

If your device is compatible, then head on over to the Link to play the game and start. At each of the stages you will be given coordinates, though you should not actually need them. There is a compass that has a red arrow pointing you the right direction as you move. You may have to walk a little bit before the arrow points in the right direction as this application does not have access to your phone's digital compass. At some stages you will need to answer a question. All questions are based off of existing signs. All of the stages will require that you are within a given radius (20 feet) of the location before you can move on. At the end of the InterCache, you will find a traditional cache container and log.


Many thanks to Asgoroth for allowing me to use elements of his Intercache in Hinesville, GA. (Intercache: Eagle's Nest)
