This was the first cache I ever placed. I have rehidden it in a new hiding spot close to where the original was located.
In a Cemetery in Georgetown. This should be a fairly easy one (10-20 minutes...about 200 meters total or less). Try to do it without the hints as the hints for stage 2 and final contain the answers. Please respect the graves.
The graveyard is only open from sunrise to sunset (although the gates are always open). Also note that no pets are allowed in the cemetery.
This is a 3 part cache as follows:
1) There is a sign at the posted coordinates. Take the number on the sign which is below the name of the cemetery and then subtract the result from the last 3 digits of both the following Latitude and Longitube: N43° 39.409 & W79° 54.765. This will bring you to a grave. Last name on the grave is Maier. It is the last one in a row so look around if you don't spot it right away. Walk in the direction of Mountainview Rd.
2) On this gravestone is listed 2 people, the man is still alive (well he was when the cache was placed, but has since passed away, but was not buried here and hence not reflected on the gravestone), but the woman has died (He was a friend that lived in town and this was his first wife, who had died over 15 years ago). How many months in total did the woman live (don't include any extra days)? It's a grey gravestone. Take the # of months that you calculated and subtract that # from Latitude N43° 39.913 and add that same # of months to Longitude W79° 54.058. This will take you to somewhere along the fenceline where the cache is hidden.
3) Cache is now a 2 inch black bison tube. It is hanging on the fence to the right of a corner fence post from the old gate. Near the top of the fence in the vines. Bring your own writing instrument.
[Stage 1] Sign is at the entrance to Greenwood Cemetery, before you enter the gates.
[Stage 2] Last name on the grave is Maier (it is the last one in a row). Six hundred and twenty seven months.
[Final] To the right of the fencepost from the old gate. Hanging near the top on the fence in the vines. Cache is at north forty three degrees thirty nine point two eight six, west seventy nine degrees fifty four point six eight five.
