Geocache Description:


This two stage mult-cache begins at a parking area at the above coordinates in Rothwell Park in Moberly, MO. Explore the War Memorial whose center piece is a large statue of General Omar Bradley, the Soldier's General. Encircling General Bradley are many other monuments to the various wars. On one of the monuments, chiseled in stone, is Old Glory, in full color. But this billowing rendition of our nation's flag has fewer than 50 stars. Count the number of stars to obtain a 2 digit number XY. Substitute this number into the coordinates: N 39 25.XY2 W 092 27.538 that lead you to an ammo can in another part of the park. This will be a nice easy walk in the park except for the last 30 feet which will be a little brushy. The best approach is uphill.

Also, in this park is "Lost in Rothwell" a cache by Full Quiver. This was the first cache I ever found and it contained the first Travel Bug I ever found. So, I am releasing my first Travel Bug in this cache. Thanks to Full Quiver to getting me started.

You shouldn't need a hint, but I will give one, it gives away the location, so decode only if you're stuck.

Original Contents: Crayons, Skateboard, Wax Ball, Eraser, Whistle, Stickies, 3 Batting Helmets, Baseball Card, Las Vegas Keychain, and Go Cougars TB
