Teachermom: This cache had a nice long run- almost 14 years! The landscaping in the area has been changed and there is no longer any camouflage to cover the cache container. The fact that the original ammo box was there the entire time is amazing too! Thanks to all who have visited Key of C.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The cache is not listed at the above coordinates. Solve the simple musical puzzle to get the coordinates of the cache. Paperless cachers can use the word clues listed at the ending of the description, but it is harder to read the word clues than to read the musical notes in the photo.

Tired of all the caches that require advanced math, foreign languages or obscure clues? Want to get another use out of all your kid's music lessons (or your own?) To solve this simple puzzle, think of the basic C major scale. Assign each note a value, where middle C=1, D=2, etc. The sequence of numbers will give you the coordinates of the cache.The cache container is an ammo box, filled with musical items and items that start with the letter C. This area is quite busy; stealth is required.

Word description for paperless (PDA) cachers.

North: E, high C, E, D, high D, high C, middle C.

West: middle C, D, middle C, F, F, F, D, G.

Thanks to Hynr for his technical expertise.
