Geocache Description:


The cache is not located at the posted coordinates. You can find the coordinates by solving the puzzle below.

It was nearing the end of the month, and I was reminiscing that our First President used to have his own holiday when I was growing up. Now, all the Presidents are lumped together. And this year, we will be searching for yet another one. Both right and left are competing. Some are up in the polls, and others have dropped down and even out. Soon, all that will be left will be our future for the next four years. We'll see whether we're moving forward or backwards. In the meantime, let's see what you make of this:

Special Notes about the 2016 Puzzle Challenge: To be considered for Fastest Solver points, you must verify your solution with Certitude. Finders will receive Top Finder points when submitting Found It logs to the cache page. All "point" scoring is arbitrary, subject to change, at the discretion of the cache owner, and probably completely meaningless (unless you just want to be announced sooner at the celebration party in December, and even that might not happen in the right order). The real challenge is just to see whether you can solve all of these caches by the end of the year. To maintain fairness, hints should not be offered by the cache owner or other solvers until the fifteenth of the month.

Special Notes about this month's cache: It's reported that the park hours are 8am to 8pm. I've removed duplicates. There is a chance that in constructing the puzzle, I screwed something up. If you find an ambiguity, feel free to contact me. This is an old-style kablooey container (that's not necessarily a good thing, but I didn't think I could hide something larger around here).
