Geocache Description:

This cache is an Altoids tin loaded with postage stamps from around the world. All are old and many are quite collectible. (Can you find the one worth 200x it's original face value?) If trading, please try to stay with the theme.

Remember the days before e-mail? "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." is not actually the official motto of the US Postal Service, contrary to popular belief. But at times we bet it could apply to some Geocachers. In honor of the old but still well used "Snail Mail" system, we've created this cache.

The cache is not at the posted coordinates. But at the posted coordinates you can buy postage stamps or send a snail mail letter. You might even be able to get info to solve the puzzle there, but very nice web tools exist that allow you to do the research from home. The cache is less than a 5 minute drive away, hidden in a typical cache and dash manner. (note: placing caches on mailboxes in technically against the law, so you won't find mine on a mailbox or on other government property.) The interestingly-named towns below hold the key to solving the puzzle that will lead you to the cache coordinates.

Okay, OK

Dinwiddie, VA
