hmarq: Well the first point is missing again and while this one will always hold a place in my psychy as the first geometry problem I used, it's time has come to pass in to that good night ...

Besides, rumor has it the troll has a new condo in someones naval ...

Perhaps the concept will live again ... go look for half a Pi or something :)

How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:


At the posted coords, you are searching for a Bison capsule that will give you directions to find the final cache; a distance and bearing to the center of a circle and the distance to the final cache along the perimeter of the circle. Your success in finding the cache will depend on the following factors:

  • Knowing what a radian is and how it's useful
  • Really *knowing* how to work your GPSr

Provided your GPSr has a calculator mode (most do) this is field solvable with no additional equipment; bring a calculator if you feel you must (+-*/ are all you need). A pen and paper if you need to 'visualize'. The final destination holds a smallish rubbermaid container with small trade items; initially a roll of magnets, a soapstone butterfly necklace, GPSr food and an unregistered travel bug tag.

The distances are more appropriate for bike than by foot. There is handy parking available at the starting point.

Please, no spoilers in the logs, they will be deleted -- this cache is intended to make you learn and use your GPSr, as well as, think creatively about cache layout and placement.

Have Fun!
