This cache is NOT at the posted coordinates, so don't wander around the interstate exchange looking for it. Instead, look at the picture in the link below and solve the puzzle for the correct location. Also, I strongly advise against hunting for this cache at night. During the day the final location is a lovely family spot in a beautiful, well patroled area; but, after dark it does sometimes become a camp for the less fortunate.
This puzzle cache is designed to test your powers of observation and to let you see first hand that someone could be watching you from miles away. Ultrahigh-resolution, gigapixel cameras can let observers see the title of that book you're reading from a mile away. Are you scared yet?
The link will take you to a cityscape of Knoxville. Your job is to use the clues below to find the numbers scattered throughout town that you will use to fill in the blank spaces to get the final coordinates. For the purposes of your search, consider north to be the top of the image when a clue references a direction. The beginning numbers of each coordinate are obvious, but I thought you might enjoy hunting them down anyway.

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.
