Geocache Description:

A special thanks to Ranger Fox for making this cache possible ! He is totally smarter than me (as if all of you didn't already know that part, lol)


The Cache is NOT at the posted Coordinates !!! But you can start the wherigo from anyplace in the World !!!
This Wherigo converts your player into a virtual version of the "Reverse Cache Box" which tells you the distance to the cache, but not the bearing. You may begin your search from any spot in the world using your Smartphone or Whereigo compatible GPS to navigate to the cache.
This is a Reverse Wherigo??? Huh?? I know, what the heck is that, right ? Well, it seems it's a cool new way to do a Wherigo and as soon as foomanjoo and f0t0m0m found a bunch of them out West I knew I was gonna just have to figure this whole thing out.
That was way harder than I expected so I called the wherigo guy himself (Ranger Fox) and put in a request for help ! Yay :)

So here ya go....West Virginia's first Reverse Wherigo ? In order to find this cache you must have a wherigo player on your phone. You must also download the cartridge below.

The concept of the Reverse Wherigo is based on the same principal as the Reverse CacheBox that you can see here and you can start it from any location in the world. It will send you to the final by way of only the amount of feet away from the cache that you are. A bit harder than getting the coordinates first I would say :) You have to move in a direction to see if you are closer to the cache...Give it a try....Once you actually find the spot it will give you a code and you can use that code to build your own reverse wherigo...

The cartridge was created by -Waldmeister- and is available to download from the wherigo.com website.
-Waldmeister-'s "The first Reverse Cache [WIG]" is the original cache in this family.
Your task is to find the cache by periodically querying your Reverse Cache Box for the distance to the final location. Try to use your Reverse Cache Box as few times as possible. All instructions and necessary information needed to complete the cartridge is contained within it. The cartridge is multilingual.

To begin, you will have to type this code into your player:

It is suggested that you take the code with you on your journey. It will be needed if it becomes necessary to restart your player for any reason.
Optional:

When you have reached the final, you will be given some statistics on your quest. If you wish, you may enter the details into your log, and also post the number of times you calculated the distance.

At the end of the game, you will be given a personal pass-code which you can enter into the cartridge if you select "create" rather than "play" when you start the cartridge. Save this code, and if you ever wish to create your own reverse cache, you can do so. -Waldmeister- would like you to inform him of your new edition of his handiwork. Please do not include hints in your log about where and how you found the cache or post photos that would give away the final location.
Have Fun!
