Geocache Description:

This multi-cache will take you to various points of interest on and around the University of South Carolina campus. All routes begin at the same location and end at the same final cache. However, what you see and learn along the way will depend on which route you take.

At each stop along the way, you will be required to find numbers within the surrounding environment.  These numbers should be placed in the appropriate A-F space to solve for the next stop's coordinates.  HINT: Collect the data carefully and immediately write it in the space provided.  Do not write down numbers you don't need (indicated by an *), since this may lead you to inadvertently use those numbers.  Double-check the coordinate once you've entered it into your GPSr.  One erroneous number will lead you astray.

The final cache is well-integrated into the environment and is located in a HIGH traffic area.  You will need to carefully choose your time to attack the final cache.  The cache is accessible from one of the many walkways in the area, so please do not leave the path and damage any landscaping!
