Geocache Description:

Coming soon, in a Geo-Galaxy not that far away...

There is unrest
in the Geo-Empire.
It is a period of war as
sinister Rebel geocachers from
outside the County continue to plant
powerful geocaches in Cache Ba$h territory.
The geocachers of Washington County banded
together to form an army known as The Alliance.

Hoping to outwit and out-hide the Rebel forces,
The Alliance has been strategically hiding their own clever
geocaches assisted by a small rogue group of Freedom Fighters.
Jedis have been dispatched to restore peace and order. In the tenth year
of the Ba$h, the Alliance and Rebel forces prepare to battle and seize power
fueled by hider Favorite Points....
