Sapience Trek: As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If you wish to repair/replace the cache sometime in the future, just contact us (by email), and assuming it meets the guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Geocache Description:

I ranked this a 3 for terrain due to the length and a 3.5 for difficulty due to the possibility of math errors.

Since this is my first cache, I stocked it full of items that fit the tone of the trail. There are items large and small both in size and value including an HP ink cartidge.

This is a multipoint cache with all points except the final on a trail so there is no need for bushwacking until then. I tried to get off the trail to give some privacy while you sign the log but I'm not sure if I succeeded since the place is riddled with trails. Please be careful so as to not give the location away.

Count carefully and make sure you get them all.

Artifact 1:
This is the iron that turned the earth to let things grow.

This is the waypoint that was vandalized. It's still an interesting stop on the trail. It's located at 43 deg 12.001 and 077 44.031

The new coordinates point to the new starting point below.

Artifact 2:
Round and round to carry the load.
Count the spokes and multiply by 2.5. Subtract the result from the current latitude to get the next.
Subtract the spoke count from 35 and subtract the result from the current longitude to get the next.

Artifact 3:
Pumping water or grinding grain, it did the work of many men.
Count the spokes on the outer rim and add 85. Subtract the result from the current latitude to get the final.
Subtract 5 from the spoke count and add the result to the current longitude to get the final.

The cache is a .50 caliber ammo can painted black with geocaching logos.

Please sign the log book and trade fair.
