Geocache Description:

Not exactly a micro the container is a black tube 2” round and 3” tall.

This is a two step Multi cache. I have tried to get virtual caches approved. This might otherwise be a virtual cache but I gave up trying to get one approved. I thought they were so good they deserved a visit so I am doing it this way. There are some "Lawn Ornaments" at 45:14.433 by 93:11.753 (same as given above) stop here first. This is a street location(first stage:is private property but there is no need to trespass to get the clues or to finish the multi.)the objects will be obvious from there. Go 47 yards due SOUTH. There are more of the same type there, and a Yellow sign. Count the letters in each word. Please be careful in your postings, DO NOT mention to much about what the sculptures are as some might be able to guess about the sign.

As of 6 May 05 it has a new home in the final leg. The old one was being abused. Also a hint for the new spot.

Since the sign seems to be gone CLICK Here But if you must go see what's there.

Word 1 count (W1c) = ____
Word 2 count (W2c) = ____
Word 3 count (W3c) = ____

North Minuets (NM) = (W2c + W3c) – 2
X = W1c/3     Y = W2c     Z = W3c – 5

West Minuet (WM) = (W2c/2) + W3c
A = W3c/2     B = (W2c/2) + (W1c/2)     C =[(W2c + W3c)-1]/5

Now go to this place to find the cache. There are multiple access points into this park. The perfect place is at the end of a Dead End street.
Good Luck.
