Geocache Description:


The Scouts (BSA) "Cache to Eagle" series is a National program to highlight past Eagle Scout projects. This is the thirteenth and final cache for the Chester County Council (CCC) BSA Cache to Eagle series, celebrating our council's 100th anniversary on January 17th, 2019! 

This WVTim inspired Smart Gadget cache requires 4 AA batteries. Boy scouts will have no problem answering the questions that follow. For everyone else, Google is your friend. And remember, order matters!  Fear not if you get the answers wrong, you'll get a chance to start over. Scouts are Persistent! It's the law.

Note that the Pi takes about 20 seconds to boot, and seems to be a bit slow to respond in the winter cold. If you get one of the questions wrong (remember order matters) or you accidently double-press a button, the questions start over. Half-dead batteries cause erratic behavior.

This geocache is placed thanks to the Chester County Council BSA. This cache location and hide style is placed by request of and with permission of the land owner, Chester County Council BSA.

Replace the cache exactly as found. Close and latch the door to keep the electronics as dry as possible. Push the log container back into the tube until it latches. If you have difficulty with the cache or container, please contact the CO (Cache Owner), CCCCacheToEagle. Don't forget to write down the keywords found in each cache of the series. 

This cache is available from sunrise to sunset. Parking is available at the scout headquarters; please do not block the driveway.

This is one of 13 caches in the Chester County Council Cache to Eagle series, highlighting dozens of Eagle projects and Chester County Council BSA Headquarters. Collect the keywords from all 13 caches and visit Council Headquarters to obtain a patch commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Chester County Council, BSA (while supplies last). Headquarters hours are M-Th 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; F 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Download the Chester County Cache to Eagle Passport here. Use this form to collect the 13 keywords from the 13 CCC Cache to Eagle caches. Take your completed form to the BSA Headquarters (location of this cache) to exchange it for the commemorative patch. 

Congratulations to Stews Crew, not only for the FTF on this cache, but for the first FTF on the whole CCC Cache to Eagle series!

Congrats to BainbridgeKid and Pineapple King, the first three scouts to complete the entire CCC Cache to Eagle series! No one needed Google in this crowd, though the giggles got the best of them a few times. Congrats, Chester County Council Scouts!
