Geocache Description:


Welcome to Puzzle #1 in the Bristol County Puzzle Series!  The Series covers all of the towns in Bristol County MA. Yes, all 20.  The Series is broken up into 4 groups with 5 puzzles per group. The puzzles must be solved in order as each puzzle will give a clue that will allow you to solve the next one in that group.  Solve the 5 together in each group and earn the coords for the bonus cache.   Each bonus cache will provide a clue for the series final so pay attention when signing those logs! 

No special equipment is needed to log the individual caches, but if your goal is to find the bonus caches and the final cache in this series, you will need to bring a special "tool" with you to each of the caches.

Good luck and Happy Caching!  Now for your puzzle...

We'll start off easy and go from there.  

 Solve BCPS #1 to find out what BCPS stands for.  You will simply need 2 words to enter into the Geochecker below to solve the quick & easy puzzle and be given the coordinates for the cache.

 Your 1st clue:

    Incorporated in 1685

 Your 2nd clue:

    In 1746, 4 of its towns were awarded to Rhode Island

 Still need another clue? OK:

    Comprised of 20 cities and towns

 When you have figured it out, check with the checker to see if you are correct!

 


You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.

 

SOME NOTES:
The series isn't intended to be difficult but it is intended to be challenging and hopefully fun.
The majority of the puzzles are not hard to solve so try not to overthink them.
There are no park & grabs.
Almost every cache is at least a ~.1 hike (some as far as ~.4) and the terrain can be a little challenging at times.
Some bushwhacking will be involved for every cache. Long pants are recommended.
You will need to gather info from every cache, including the bonuses, and solve the final puzzle to be able to complete the series.
