Geocache Description:

Within Seattle's Lakeridge Park. Must find several easy clues to determine final location of cache.

Coordinates are for the Parking Lot. This is a multi-legged find. You will find clues that will give you the digits of the cache's final resting place.

1. Park in the outfield near the published coordinates. From here you will need to find several clues.

Solve for digits A, B, C & D as follows:

A=Earliest time you can park here (hour).
B=The number of swings in the nearby playground minus the number of trees in or near deep right field.
C=One half of the first two digits of the Metro Bus Route number that stops nearby. The 107 used to stop here. Use 5.
D=The Seattle Municipal Code is a three-part number. The last digit of the first number for the No Tresspassing when park is closed code is D.

2. Walk or drive to these coordinates: 47 30.512 N 122 14.885 W.
Here you will find a trail head. I suggest driving.
(Note: if you do walk here, proceed as if you were driving by going left on 68th. This will keep the neighbors happy.)

3. Proceed on foot to: 47 30.181 N 122 14.774 W
Here you will look up and see some power lines, etc. Count the number of wires, then add 2. This is the letter E.

4. Proceed to: 47 30.191 N 122 14.799 W
Here there is a handrail, across the path from a large tree. Count the number of vertical posts holding this particular rail. This is the digit F.

5. Locate the cache at:
47 3B.FCB N
122 1A.DBE W

The cache is physically a wide-mouthed plastic Mozzerella Cheese jar. Since it is not too big, don't plan on leaving anything very large. When you put it back, please insure that it is right-side up.

Note: Local community volunteers spend countless hours maintaining and restoring this park. Please stay on the trails. Cache is somewhat near the trail, so if you find yourself stomping thru brush, you are not close. Tree cover may hinder your signal a bit.

Note: The travel bug Sleepless 'till Seattle is attempting to find its way back home to this cache. If you see it here, please leave it. Thanks.
