This geocache is unique and could be difficult to sovle.  This is a difficult gadget cache / field puzzle.  I marked it as a traditional cache with the attribute of "Field Puzzle" as the log is technically at the coordinates posted.  This is the methodology that most gadget cachers use, so I followed this method.  Puzzle caches are normally caches where you have to do work at home to figure out a puzzle to get the coordinates of the final log.  If I'm mistaken on any of this, please let me know so I can do better going forward.  If you don't like puzzles or a serious challenge, you might want to skip this cache.  I do want everyone to be able to get the solution, which is why I've included the phone number above. Feel free to text for a hint.  I want everyone to be able to experience the adventure.  Now that the cache has been solved by someone on their own, I'll be glad to give out all the hints that are needed.  Lots of time, effort and materials went into making this geocache, so please leave things as you found them and only take things from the swag bag or any travel bugs you might find.  Pictures have been added inside so that you can see how things should be returned once you are finished.  If people enjoy this type of geocache, we have more possibly in development.  Feedback and criticism is always welcomed.  I hope everyone enjoys it.  Good luck cachers!

** On To The Cache Description **

Greetings new recruit!

We at the Jungle Navigation Co. want to welcome you as part of the crew and congratulate you for being accepted as the newest skipper on our team.  Before we let you take excited tourists on magical journeys through the darkest depths of the many jungles across the world, we need you to complete a simple task.  A cargo crate that is near and dear to our company has been swept away to a foreign location.  Actually, this is no ordinary cargo crate.  The crate was aboard the Kwango Kate when it mysteriously disappeared decades ago.  This is your first task as a skipper for The Jungle Navigation Co.  We need to see if you can locate the crate, figure out how to get inside the crate and finally sign the log found within.  Do this simple task and you'll be ready for many adventures in your future.  Please do not bring any tools as all the resources you'll need will be provided for you.  Well, you will need one tool.  That tool would be your vast knowledge of river systems throughout the world.

Good luck skipper ... you'll need it!

Also ... we had to make an update to the way you enter the cache.  The original plan was very simple, and as a result, people that were not geocachers accessed the crate and sometimes caused chaos.  Use the ship manifest below to enter the cache now.  Good luck!

Jungle Navigation Co. Rules

1.)  Please only take items found within the "Swag Bag".  Bugs of the travel variety might also be found within.  The jungle holds many secrets.
