Geocache Description:

Cache is not at the posted coordinates. To find the coordinates to the cache, solve the puzzle below.

I think families can be pretty interesting, especially understanding how they’re connected to each other. There is some sort of appeal to figuring out where relations occur, or to finding an earliest known ancestor. Sometimes, you find families that are huge, and that cover huge portions of the total—sometimes as high as 20.6%! Other times you find really tiny families, with a single ancestral line that doesn’t connect to anyone else. Did you know that, in all, there are only about 500 different families in the world?

You are looking for a camo pill bottle. I didn't see any poison ivy leaves anywhere, but I did see some vines from it so make sure you are careful about those when grabbing the cache—they are very close.

Congrats to spooko13 on the FTS and FTF!!!


Side note on special characters, in case any aren't showing up for you:

-Embera-Baudo has an acute accent over the "a" in "Embera" and over the "o" in "Baudo"

-Lu has an umlaut over the "u"

-The character before "Hua" looks like an equals sign with a vertical bar through it. However, it is NOT a not-equals sign ≠. If you figure out the right place to be looking, you should be fine if you search without that character and then scroll down until you see something like what I described. Note that there also exists a separate Hua, without that character, and that that is NOT the correct one.
