Geocache Description:

DO NOT HUNT THIS CACHE AT THE ABOVE COORDS!! THEY ARE TO THE CENTER OF LONG LAKE!

The only way to get to the Emerald City is to follow the Yellow Brick Road.

There are six caches hidden in six different public hunting/fishing areas. Each cache is a step along the Yellow Brick Road. You must find all six in order to find The Emerald City.

Each cache is "small" but there is a log sheet and room for small trade items. Also, inside the cover of each cache is a number. Keep track of that number, those number's will be used to replace the letter's in the coords below.

The Emerald City is located at: 45 45.upn
91 56.ort'

So, to find the Emerald City, you must go "Up Nort'!" Unless you are one of the lucky ones who already lives "Up Nort'!", then you don't have to go anywhere. Well, you do have to go out and find the Yellow Brick Road, but ya don't have to, well, you get it.

The six caches you seek are:

Y.B.R.-Tin Man........( U )

Y.B.R.-Wicked Witch...( P )

Y.B.R.-Cowardly Lion..( N )

Y.B.R.-Good Witch.....( O )

Y.B.R.-Flying Monkies.( R )

Y.B.R.-ScareCrow......( T )

You can find these in any order, just remember to record the number in the cap.
