How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:


The posted coordinates will get you to parking. This is a 4 Stage Multi. See the following information to complete your mission. Be sure to wear your blaze orange during hunting season.  

Altoona has been threatened by opposing forces and they are looking to gain access to our water supplies. We need YOU to take on the mission of getting to our Kettle Reservoir Lookout Nest. We need you in the nest to watch the entrance of the reservoir. We also need you to pass us much needed information. Information that can only be seen from the given locations. 

This mission is NOT for those who do not like a challenge. You will enjoy all of 250ft of path. After that, it's all UP to you! Footing will be very scary in some locations. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS. We recommend that you take a partner or group to tackle this mission.

To obtain coordinates to stage 1...solve the following coordinates puzzle. At stage 1, you will be given supplies to complete your mission.  PLEASE return them when coming back to parking. The needed tools may be missing if a team is just ahead of you so it's best to have a UV light and binoculars when arriving. Also, in the colder months, cold batteries may die quickly in the UV light. Be sure to have three aaa batteries in case the supplied batteries are dead. Please notify me if the binoculars or UV light are missing from stage 1.

We have coded the coordinates so that the enemy cannot follow you.

To log this cache, you will need to follow all instructions to a T or the enemy will spot you resulting in a DNF.(or deleted log) Along with signing the log, you must email me the information obtained from the field to log your find.

Good Luck!
