Geocache Description:

A simple virtual cache on the University of Idaho campus with a lot of history.

One of my favorite places on the UofI campus is rich with history and I felt that it really needed to be a virtual cache.

The listed coordinates should get you close to your destination, but my GPSR was getting a really poor signal when I visited the location today. Even with poor reception you should be able to get close enough to find the needed information.

When you get to the general area, find a tree that was planted on April 10th, 1911. E-mail me with the name of the person who planted this tree to get credit for finding this cache. Do not post the answer to the question in you log entry, even if encrypted. Logs that post the answer or do not e-mail me the correct answer will be deleted.

Make sure that you take a little time to explore the area. You might be amazed how many names from your history classes you will come across.
