Geocache Description:



There is absolutely nothing wrong with the coordinates above. I'm sure they would take you to a very nice location where you could enjoy nature. However, if you want to find this cache, I don't recommend going there; I recommend solving the puzzle in the cache description below instead.

That being said, the cache is within 3.14159265359... km of the posted coordinates.



Happy Pi Day!


March 14th (3/14) is celebrated as Pi Day (3.14) by math enthusiasts around the world. Pi is the mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Mathematically, it’s transcendental and irrational. Its decimal places go on infinitely.

To celebrate the holiday, I have been serving up a Pi Day puzzle every year since 2014; here are the caches in the series thus far:

2014 - GC4ZJ6K
2015 - GC5N33X
2016 - GC6CCXC
2017 - GC71EYQ
2018 - GC7KADF
2019 - GC82DRP
2020 - GC8KCRK

For 2017, I presented this conundrum:

82237  73182  12172  35291  43354  21451  58422  37383  41488  43234

As the geocache owner, I ensure that these links are to a local geocaching group that is active in the community and contributing to geocaching in positive ways. These links have not been checked by Geocaching HQ or by the reviewer.

 

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning and effort to create and place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, the journey or location, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or "copy and paste" logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.

Travel Bug Etiquette: Cachers pay good money for Travel Bugs and Geocoins. If you take a TB or GC from a cache will you PLEASE ensure it is correctly logged in and out. If you take one that still shows it is somewhere else, please be patient before “grabbing” the item; it does not get its mileage by being grabbed before the last person to drop it has had time to log their placement. This is particularly important on busy and new caches. If you have an issue with a bug or coin, please e-mail or message the owner through their profile and advise them of the issue; they will be pleased to hear from you.
