Geocache Description:



Cache description :

  • The Atlanta Area Geocachers have reached out and formed a sister caching relationship with the Amsterdam Area Geocachers. To commemorate this friendship across the ocean, the two groups have created a unique cache in both countries. It's called the "Atlanta-Amsterdam Foreign Exchange Program. In order to find this cache, you must go to GC4D3NM and team up with a Foreign Exchange Cacher to get the information you need to find the cache in your area.

Rules :

  • Cachers can go to this link and post a note that they are looking for a Foreign Exchange Cacher to help them find the cache in their area.
  • The Foreign Exchange Cacher will go to the posted cords on their cache page to get information to help their Foreign Exchange Cacher find the cache in their area (example: The Atlanta Cacher will go to the cords post on the Atlanta-Amsterdam Foreign Exchange Program cache page and get information that will help the Amsterdam cacher find the Amsterdam-Atlanta Foreign Exchange Program cache) and vice versa.
  • When posting a "found" log, the finding cacher would want to put in their log who they teamed up with to find the cache.
  • Cachers who have already "found" or have teamed up with another cacher should not help anyone else.

Finding the cache :

  • Go to the posted cords and you will find two four-digit sets of numbers (on the part of the monument facing the paved path). Note the bottom set of numbers, which answers the question "When was this a gift of the state regent?" This set of numbers will help the Foreign Exchange cacher in Amsterdam find their cache. In order to find the Atlanta cache, your Foreign Exchange cacher will need to go to the posted cords for GC4D3NM and get the numbers (5 digits that represent ABCDE) from that location to help you find the cache in Atlanta. This cache is located at:

N 33° 47. (A+2) (B-1) (C-2)

W 084° 22. (D-1) (A) (B-C-E)

Difficulty/Terrain :

  • The hide itself is a 1.5 difficulty with a terrain of 1.5 and a 3.5 challenge difficulty. With all of this combined, the cache is rated as a 5 difficulty with a terrain of 1.5. A special prize will be awarded to the first cacher who is able to find both caches and sign both logs solo (without any help from any cachers).

Container :

  • The container is a small lock and lock type container with room for travel bugs and small trade items.
