Geocache Description:

UofR Meridian Items you will need:

1) GPS

2) Mobile Phone

3) A friend at a computer with internet connection at the site

When you arrive at the University of Rochester using the Elmwood Ave. entrance, proceed straight on Wilson Blvd. and park at one of the meters (parking can be hard to come by during the day, but if you are on campus on the weekend or after 7 p.m., parking is open and no longer ticketed). From there, you will be a short walk to the coordinates above.

The spot you will find is known as the Meridian. You will be able to check the accuracy of your GPS here, and be inspired by Mr. Einstein's most famous formula. When you have found the spot, look toward the southwest, at the Interfaith Chapel (the cool building with all the stained glass). Call your friend up, and have them take a picture of you on the webcam. Please have your friend save a picture of you and your group waving, holding a sign, or whatever you like. The camera has a zoom, so they can get pretty close. If you want a closer shot, you can walk toward the chapel and take a picture at another spot on the Eastman Quad. Please upload your picture with your e-log entry to verify your visit. Mac's with Internet Explorer browsers don't jive with the webcam, so use Netscape if you can.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
