Geocache Description:

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year


Twas the night before Christmas Eve

The sleigh was packed and ready to leave

The email list was checked twice

Ok let’s check it thrice

 

What’s this? The Grinch published a cache?!

Hurry to be FTF we need to leave in a flash.

Come on Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen

Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blixen

 

But Wait we have a puzzle to solve

It doesn’t look too hard to resolve

Come elves power up and help

Santa said with a yelp.

 

All pulled up the cache page

Looks pretty easy for any age.

“I got it” shouts Elf Snow Trekker

Yes, I ran it thru the cord checker.

 

 

HERE IS THE PUZZLE SANTA AND HIS ELVES READ

 

 

Santa this is a FTF opportunity for you and your elves.

Hurry up and solve this puzzle before your big night.

 

 

This should be easy since you calculate your Roof -Top

stops using this measurement to prevent “In Air Stops”

 

(This may explain why there is “yellow” snow on your roof)

 

 

PRONKUSEMA

 

Reindeer can’t walk too far without answering the call of nature.

 

In fact, they are unable to walk and pee at the same time,

so they have to take a bathroom break roughly every 6 miles.

 

In Finnish, this distance is also known as “reindeer’s piss”

And was an old-fashioned description of distances in the countryside.

 

Santa has found the “measure” could vary for each of his reindeer

So Santa STOPS every 6 miles.
