Geocache Description:

With the change in weather and the end of October here, it is that time of year. It is time to relive a little of this old childhood favorite of the season. 

 

Please do not cache after sunset and be respectful of the area and any people who may be in the area. 


Its that time of year again fellow Geocachers… it is time for the arrival of The Great Pumpkin.

 

Here is the story for those of you who may not know.

 

On Halloween all good and sincere geocachers can choose to go to the "pumpkin patch" and "look" for the Great Pumpkin. The Great Pumpkin will rise up from the pumpkin patch and bring toys to all the good and sincere geocachers.

 

The posted coordinates will lead you to the "pumpkin patch".  Once there you will need to be a good geocacher and gather the following information.  Year of Death ____ Year of Birth ____

 

Next you will need to wait in the "pumpkin patch" while you find your final coordinates by subtracting the year of birth from the year of death.  Then before it gets too late you will need to subtract 47.  Once all that is done and you have your final answer…

 

The Great Pumpkin is definitely closer than he has been all year… add your final answer to the last two digits of the posted North coordinate to find the final coordinates that will lead you to the Great Pumpkin.
