This cache has been archived.

Krypton: As there's been no response to my previous note, I assume that the cache is not going to be repaired or replaced, so I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If you wish to repair/replace the cache sometime in the future, just contact us, and assuming it meets the guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it

Thanks for your cooperation!

Geocache Description:

The cache is not located at the posted coordinates, but our intelligence has told us that it is within 2 miles of that location.

We recently found what appears to be a coded message. The envelope we found the message in was labeled: WW1 Battleship Cache. Does this have something to do with a World War One Battleship in some way? We have no idea. See what you can make of this message:

  • 1/2 cup marinated artichokes
  • 3 cups caesar salad
  • 1 cup cherries
  • 1 glazed cake-type doughnut
  • 1 cup macaroni and cheese
  • 2 slices french toast
  • 1 frozen fat free vegetarian burger
  • 4 Tbsp fat-free mayo
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 small apple
  • 1/2 cup baked beans
  • 8 oz orange juice
  • 2/3 cup premium ice cream
  • 10 tsp peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp powdered lemonade mix

From what we understand, this WW1 cache is magnetic. The difficulty is a lot less than 5, but some could argue that special WW tools are required to decode the message so I'm rating it 5.
