Barking Frogz: Hello,

Based on recent logs, this cache may be missing. I'm temporarily disabling it to give the owner the opportunity to check on the cache and, if necessary, repair it. Cache owner, if you check on the cache and determine that all is well, or if you repair or replace it, then feel free to re-enable it at any time. If you feel that you will not be able to do this in a timely manner, then please archive it. Whatever your intentions, please post a note here on the cache page (not email) to let us know that you are still active and maintaining the cache. If you reactivate the cache and/or post a note here within a month, then no action will be taken. However, if a month passes with no response, then I'll assume that I should archive this listing.

Geocache Description:


Pi Day is a lot of fun, it all starts with the US abbreviation of March 14 (3/14) and the first three digits of pi. And who doesn’t love pie? It was a match made in heaven. But here’s the thing: π as a number is bad, and therefore, so is the entire misguided day dedicated to its celebration. It’s a lot to take in, and I, too, was once like you: I was taught the virtues of pi for years, going back to Pi Day parties in middle school. But instead of pi, we should celebrate tau, an alternative circle constant referred to by the Greek letter τ that equals 2π, or approximately 6.28. For the full low down, just do an internet search for “tau manifesto”.. Placed with explicit permission from Kennewick Parks. The need of a shovel to FIND a cache is expressly forbidden by groundspeak rules. This hide was placed with specific permission of Kennewick Parks. DO NOT copy this hide type without such permission.
