Geocache Description:

Stop to quench your thirst while you are geocaching in the Speculator area, find the necessary information, and continue to other interesting spots.

Due to the many problems logged in finding the original container at the spring, I turned the spring in to the starting point for a multi-cache a couple years after creating the original. The spring is in plain sight but there is no cache container at that location. Initially I had placed information about the clue location at the spring, but difficulty maintaining this physical clue coordinate data required a change in the hint, as follows:

To start, find the spring (easy). Next, count the number of white columns on the porch of the yellow house nearby. This number is "A" in the following equation: A+1 = 2B.

The clue coordinates: N 43° A1.163' x W 74° BB.548'

At the clue coordinates you will find a plastic jar with coordinates and information to help you find the actual cache container. If you don't have an excellent memory, you might want to bring something to write on so you can copy some information when you find the clue.

The final cache container is a standard ammo box.

This cache requires some effort and using your geocaching sense but it does not require a long hike.

Please note that while many folks (including me) have been drinking the water for years, it is a natural untreated source.

If you are an Amateur Radio Operator, give a call on the Speculator repeater 147.165 (no pl). Several club members are geocachers. Maybe we can meet and compare notes.
