stbk: The area where the final was doesn't really support a container any more. I think it's time to open this area up for other hiders.

Geocache Description:

A simple three-stage multi that takes you for a walk around the newest incarnation of the Cupertino Library.

This is (at least) the third incarnation of the Cupertino Library on this site. It was a neat little three story building when I first encountered it in the mid 70s. They added an annex in the 80s, but the community soon outgrew the expanded building. The newest version is much larger and much more open inside. After you're done with the cache, go on inside and explore!

Your journey starts at:

N37 19.097 W122 01.737

Here you will find a neat little statue. Examine it closely to determine the latitude of the actual cache.

A = # of shelled animals here.
B = # of letters in the artist's name as shown on the statue (not on the plaque -- look on the back side, near the ground on the far left of the statue as you face the back).
C = (# of non-humans) - (# number of humans).
Ok, now walk over to

N37 19.038 W122 01.724

This plaque was placed when these trees were planted. I played soccer on the nearby field in those times, and I remember these trees when they were little. Read the plaque to determine the longitude of the actual cache.

D = The last digit of the year associated with people doing the dedication.
E = (# of times the word "with" appears) * 2
F = The last digit of the year associated with the people that this plaque is dedicated TO.
You'll find the actual cache at:

N37 19.ABC W122 01.DEF

Please be sure and cover it up when you rehide it. Also, please try and tread lightly as you enter the area, so that we don't get too much of a geotrail going. Have fun!

PS: A, B, C, D, E, and F add up to 26. (I hate it when there's no checksum on these sorts of caches.)

[12/23/04 -- Updated the description for B, since folks were having trouble with it.] [7/13/05 -- Cache is now a micro in the same location.]
