Geocache Description:


RE-READ THE VARIOUS CACHE PAGES. FROM TIME TO TIME WE MAKE CHANGES FOR PURPOSES OF CLARITY BASED ON ANY E MAILS WE RECEIVE.

PLEASE IGNORE THE ABOVE POSITION, IT ONLY TELLS YOU PART OF THIS CACHE IS IN CALIFORNIA, THE OTHER PART IS IN NEVADA.

THIS IS A VIRTUAL CACHE.

TEAM KFWB GPS HAS BEEN TO BOTH THESE LOCATIONS. YOU'LL BE REQUIRED TO VISIT IN PERSON THE FOLLOWING TWO LOCATIONS.

#1 ZONE 11T 299939 EAST 4503340 NORTH. YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF IN A CEMETERY. PLEASE TAKE AT LEAST SIX PICTURES OF THIS CEMETERY, AND POST PHOTOS ON THIS CACHE PAGE. HAVE SOMEONE HOLD A LARGE PIECE OF PAPER WITH THE WORDS 'TEAM KFWB GPS' ON IT, SO THE WORDS ARE VISIBLE AND READABLE IN THE PHOTO.

#2 ZONE 11S 418250 EAST 4062453 NORTH. AT THIS LOCATION YOU WILL BE IN THE RUINS OF ONE OF THE TOUGHEST GHOST TOWNS TO GET TO IN THE UNITED STATES. YOU MUST PHOTOGRAPH SOME OF THE RUINS AND THE TURN OF THE CENTURY AERIAL TRAMWAY CLOSE BY. AT LEAST TWELVE PHOTOS WILL BE REQUIRED, WHICH YOU MUST PUT ON THIS CACHE PAGE. AT LEAST TWO PHOTOS MUST INCLUDE A LARGE PIECE OF PAPER WITH THE WORDS 'TEAM KFWB GPS' THAT WILL BE VISIBLE AND READABLE IN THE PHOTOS.

TEAM KFWB GPS WILL PAY $1,000.00 U.S. TO THE FIRST TEAM TO ACCOMPLISH THE ABOVE. THIS IS THE ONLY PRIZE TO BE GIVEN.

THE WINNER CAN EITHER HAVE HIS WINNINGS PLACED IN A SPECIAL CACHE (TEAM KFWB'S CHOICE OF LOCATION) IN THE GREATER VICTORIA B.C.(CANADA) AREA, OR, IF YOU OR YOUR TEAM, LIVES OUT OF THE AREA, THEN YOU MUST SUPPLY AN ADDRESS OR A POST OFFICE BOX NUMBER WHERE THE $1,000.00 U.S.CAN BE MAILED TO.

***WARNING***

POSITION #2 IS NOT FOR THE AMATEUR ADVENTURER. THIS POSITION (AND SURROUNDING AREA) THAT YOU MUST GET TO IS IN HOSTILE TERRAIN. YOU MUST BE IN EXCELLENT PHYSICAL SHAPE, ADVISE RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE WHERE YOU ARE GOING, CARRY CAMPING GEAR, WARM CLOTHES, A SATELLITE PHONE, SPARE BATTERY, FOOD, WATER, SURVIVAL EQUIPMENT, ETC.

YOUR PLANS MUST BE THOUGHT OUT WELL IN ADVANCE. DEPENDING ON THE ROUTE YOU TAKE, A FOUR WHEEL VEHICLE WILL BE AN ASSET, BUT ONLY FOR PART OF THIS JOURNEY. REMEMBER, YOU MUST BE IN TOP PHYSICAL SHAPE FOR THIS ONE! IF YOU ARE NOT, PASS IT UP!

FOR THE PROFESSIONAL HIKER - GPS'ER ONLY!

THIS CACHE WILL BE DELETED ON JUNE 30TH, 2003 IF NOT CLAIMED.

REMEMBER TEAM KFWB GPS PAYS ONLY THE FIRST TEAM TO COMPLETE THESE TWO POSITIONS!

YOU, OR YOUR TEAM IS ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.

GOOD LUCK!

TEAM KFWB GPS
