Geocache Description:


Palestine Township is in the Southwestern corner of Story County, Iowa.  Answer the questions about Palestine Township to get the coordinates.   I do not agree with their answer to the number of cemeteries , but use Wikipedia as your reference for all questions, or spend time looking in the wrong place. 



You do not have to enter a cemetery to find this cache. If you chose to enter a cemetery during the search for this cache, do not do so between sunset and sunrise.

The cache is at N41 54.ABC W093 41.DEF 


A = The number of incorporated towns

B = First digit in the US Highway that runs east and west through the township

C = The number of zip codes in the township minus 6 ?

D = The number of cemeteries plus one

E = First digit in the population according to the 2000 census

F  = Last digit in the US Highway that runs North and South through the township


The final is a camoed bison tube. MOGA 2013 pathtag for FTF.
