Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A multi-stage cache with a significant hike, a field puzzle, and some physically challenging stages. This is the final cache in the five-part M.I.L.L. series. In order to find this cache, you must find the first four caches in the series. Coordinates to the first stage of this cache, as well as schematic documents needed to solve the field puzzle, can be found in the M.I.L.L. Race: Barracks cache. Cache difficulty partially reflects previous required caches in series.

A note on the terrain: to complete this and the other two final caches in the series, a hike of about 5 miles is required, including some lovely ups and downs of course. There is also a very steep slope to navigate, wading required, and couple little climbs to tackle. Take this information into account when planning your visit--come with not only water, food, and gear, but also a sense of adventure!

Ignition Comm Munitions Barracks Spaceship

Welcome, Earthlings, to the final cache in the M.I.L.L Race series! I'm Commander Eggbert, ready to race home with my M.I.L.L. crew. We need your help to secure our spaceship. There are parts missing that we need you to find and repair!

By now you have completed the preemptive caches in order to safely transport us back home. At the Barracks you'll find coordinates for your first stop on this assignment as well as some schematics for the spaceship. Please deposit used schematic sheets in the spaceship (final container)--they will be beamed back to the Barracks in due time for future seekers. Good luck!

Note attributes: do not attempt during or shortly after heavy rainfall!
