Cache is NOT at the posted coordinates!
Please be careful and watch out for snakes at GZ, particularly in the afternoons and evenings of summer. I have not seen snakes at GZ, but others have.
In order to find this BONUS REWARD cache, one must first find the other 6 'History of Coppell' caches, which are:
GC6YMYB - History of Coppell #1 - Mustang Grapes
GC6YMYG - History of Coppell #2 - Windmill Historical Marker
GC6YMYQ - History of Coppell #3 - Water Supply Tank
GC6YMYX - History of Coppell #4 - Train Depot
GC6YMZ0 - History of Coppell #5 - Bethel School
GC6YMZ5 - History of Coppell #6 - Gibbs
On the log sheets inside each cache will be letters and numbers. With this information, one can determine the coordinates for this BONUS REWARD cache, which are:
N 32 5X.ABC . . . . . . please adjust ABC, DEF as indicated below
W 96 5Y.DEF . . . . . . if numbers were found before July 2018
Please note that the cache was moved to a new location July 30, 2018. If the other caches in the series were found prior to this date, please make the following adjustments:
- Subtract 005 from ABC
- Subtract 024 from DEF
You can check your answers for this puzzle on GeoChecker.com or by using the solution checker below.
Please note that the cache is not too far off a nice groomed trail. No need to bushwhack until one is relatively close to GZ. See hint for more help.
Please note that there is a lock on the cache! Please pull down hard on the lock to open.
The combination is a significant date in the history of Coppell.
