Geocache Description:

A healthy combination of Wheel of Fortune, Jumble, pop culture, history and geocaching.  Enjoy !!


 

 

Due to the standardized formatting on geocaching.com, if you wish to print this cache, please change your page setup value, so that this cache listing prints in LANDSCAPE (the long way) rather then portrait orientation.

This cache is found in two parts.  In the first part using the coordinates and clues below, you will need to solve the Wheel of Fortune type puzzle for a famous saying.  The second part requires that you know who this expression is attributed to, and using the persons name, calculate the final cache location.

A few guidelines:

  • You will not need to trespass any non-public / private property. 

  • All of the clues / cache can be ascertained / found from your car or a short easy walk.

  • Do not list anything in your log entries that will spoil the surprise / clues for any future cachers.

  • There are specific requirements that are outlined below in order to log the cache as a find.

Now that you have solved the expression, who said it ?  Come on you know !!  If you do not recall, phone a friend, ask the first stranger you see, go to the library, or a quick easy search on the internet.
