Geocache Description:

This cache is not located at the above coordinates, there is no need to visit the posted coordinates for this cache.


As the end of July 2014 looms on the horizon, I note that I am rapidly approaching my 5K milestone. To commemorate this (approaching) event, I have decided to create a bit of GeoArt - specifically a jet airplane on final approach to Piedmont Triad International Airport just a few miles downrange. The resulting plane has a wingspan of just under 2 miles, and measures just over 2.5 miles from tip to tail.

Each cache in the series will have a simple puzzle to solve. To get the correct coordinates, simply take the number at the beginning of the line for the correct answer, and put it where the "X"'s are located to achieve the correct coordinates.

 

Most of the caches you are looking for are Micro caches, but there are a couple of small caches in the series to keep things interesting. Similarly most of the caches are hidden in a similar fashion, with a few deviants in the mix to keep things interesting. (Boy does that sound wrong.) 1/2 of a star has been added to the difficulty rating of each cache for the work of doing the puzzle. The caches were all hidden in a park and grab fashion, and it is expected that they can be found in the same way. That being said, please be safe. Be sure to pull all the way off of the road when stopping roadside, look both ways when crossing the street, and other assorted motherly nags. Likewise while the caches were placed with an eye toward avoiding overt muggle awareness, please exercise stealth to promote the longevity of the series. While you are welcome to find the caches in any order, doing them in numerical order is a (relatively) efficient route, resulting in roughly 48 frequent flyer miles.
