Geocache Description:

Triangulate from three or more micro-caches to find this cache.

You might want complete the Desktop triangulate (GCFC32) cache as a warmup for this cache. Not only will it hone your triangulation skills, but there is plenty of public parking just north of its final location. Proceed West along the path; go up the hill; take a sharp left on the path; cross the bridge; stay on the trail until you reach the top. Keep your eyes open for deer and fox.

You are given the coordinates for three micro-caches. (Two alternates will be listed in the Hints section, just in case.) Each micro will reveal its distance in meters from the main cache. Find three of the micros and triangulate to determine the coordinates for the main cache.

The micros are half-pint, clear containers. The main cache is a 6x7x12 clear container. Please seal all containers completely before re-hiding.

When placed on 4-26-03 the cache contained: a log book with two pens and a pencil; the Cache Cow travel bug; two AA batteries; an In Flames CD; a VHS copy of American Pie; the novel Year Zero by Jeff Long; some geo-swag; and a camera for pictures of the first several finders.

Please note in the logbook if you take pictures and notify me when the camera runs out of film. If you take a book, please leave a book. If you take a CD, please leave a CD. If you take a movie, please leave a movie.
