Geocache Description:

My Name is Forrest, Forrest Gump

I like caching. Some people think this is a dumb cache. I don't. My momma always told me that caching is like a box of chocolates...you never know what you are going to get. I like this cache because I can sit here on the west end of this _______ just like in the movie. Sometimes when I sit here a feather floats down and lands on my head. I like feathers. Today I can see _______ feathers floating down. I bring peanuts here to feed the squirrels. They often play in that tree that is in the big planter. Today I see ________ squirrels in the tree. Squirrels are funny. That's all I have to say about that.

Sometimes when I come here I like to count things. The red bricks in the planter are stacked _______ high. There is ______ phone booth nearby. At night they turn on those cute little lights that surround the planter. There are _______ of them. The really tall light posts in the parking lot have _____ lamps each. Counting is so much fun.

I like to run. Sometimes I stop here to rest. People come here on their work breaks to smoke. They think I'm stupid, but I can run faster than they can. They often leave their butts in that ash tray for others to clean up. Today I see _______ butts in the ash tray. Momma says , "Don't touch'em, they're nasty." I don't know why people want to burn leaves in their mouth like that. I think its kinda dumb. That's all I have to say about that.

I was never good at math. You can find this cache if you will add up all the numbers that are in the blanks above. Now divide the total by 100 and round off the answer to the nearest whole number. Now subtract that amount from 709. I like 709. Write your answer in the blank below. That's all I have to say about that.

I hope you find what you're looking for. I've got to go now. I thought I just heard somebody yell, "Run, Forrest, Run."
