Geocache Description:


This is a letterbox-hybrid/mystery bonus cache you can find by completing the Roo's Rescue Adventure Lab (link). The lab entails a hike of 6 to 8 miles (depending on your approach) in the nearby parks that will leave you poised to nab this extra find.

When you complete the final stage of the adventure lab, go to the Journal Entry for "Home" (click on the "View 5 Journal Entries" link below the description on the main page, then swipe to the last one) to access the video (42 seconds, with subtitles). Watch for the code word to unlock the certitude below, which will give you what you need to find the cache. It will be necessary to project a waypoint to the final location.

There are waypoints on the cache page to help guide you on the trails to the lab locations. Please note that the crossing of Pope's Head creek (waypoint T2) is dangerous after heavy rainfall. I've also created a bookmark list of other caches along the route.

The cache container is from an archived cache. Enjoy the decorations/code but the info is not pertinent.

A Big Thank You!
