How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This is a multi-part cache with some swag in the final cache.
The posted coordinates take you to the first clue.
This cache ends up in Scott County Park.
Final container is a 'regular', size 3 container that had originally been loaded with a 2003 survival calender, sand dollar, yo-yo, kids game, screw driver, jellyfish, keychain clock, etc.
***Note: The original listing used a wooden plaque next to a door of a log building at the posted coordinates. That sign has since been removed, so adjustments have been made to use another nearby sign.
To begin the hunt for Br'er Rabbits Bramble Patch, find a very large nearby sign that contains yellow etched letters, and the outline of a famous person's face etched in white. Use that sign and assign a number to each of the following letters:

D = the number that is on the BACK of the sign
E = the total number of letters in the 5th word on the front of the sign, PLUS the number of letters in the 6th word on the front of the sign
