Geocache Description:

Welcome to the

Frederick Puzzler's Corner!

A monthly event to encourage puzzle solving in the geocaching community.


If you have a specific puzzle or puzzling topic you'd like help with, please make note of it in your Will Attend log so others can prepare to help.



This is National Walk Around Things Day.  What might that mean to you?  Some may use it as an excuse to avoid responsibilities by "walking around" them, others may take it to mean it's a good time to get up and move after a long, cold winter.  If you want to set a crazy goal, try walking the circumference of the earth; if it were possible, the average person should be able to do so, walking non-stop, in about 347 days.  That gets you home just in time to take a nap and celebrate the day again!


In 1949, twelve nations in Europe and North America signed the North Atlantic Treaty, establishing what today is one of the world's most important military alliances.  In the aftermath of World War II and as a counter-measure to the threat that the Soviet Union posed at the time, this treaty came together to secure peace in Europe, to promote cooperation among its members and to guard their freedom.  It commits the Allies (as the members are known) to democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law, as well as to peaceful resolution of disputes.  The treaty sets out the idea of collective defence - meaning an attack on one Ally is an attack on all Allies.  The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) ensures that the security of its European member countries is inseparably linked to that of its North American member countries.  It makes me wonder if anyone at the time could foresee how crucial an act this might still be almost 75 years in the future...



Here's the usual spiel…

This event is open to all geocachers, no matter what your statistics say or whether you even like puzzles!  Newbies and addicts, socialites and lone wolves, mark your calendar.


If you've got a puzzle or mystery cache that's currently got you stumped, this event is for you! 


This is an unstructured think-tank assembly where you can collaborate on the latest tantalizing quizzler on your radar.  But you don't have to work on puzzles to attend; there are always good stories and conversations all around.  However, you'll have plenty of others to bounce ideas around with, and you might discover that someone has seen a similar technique before.  We continue to see successes and progress at each gathering.


For the puzzle junkies, bring your puzzle paraphernalia - flagged caches, laptop or tablet (Wi-Fi is available), theories, library card, worksheets, (sp)eye glasses, flight plans, Enigma machine, abacus, scratch paper (don’t forget your writing instrument) - you never know who, or what, will show up, and from whom you can gain an advantage.  It's fun, too, to watch others' wheels spinning on something you may have already solved!
