How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

Cache is a camo'd bison capsule. Area is near a neighborhood park, just off one of Missoula's trail systems
The cache is camoflaged because it was muggled before--please replace it as it was after you have logged it TX. Please be careful with the new camo job.

This is the fourteenth cache in a series of caches I am loosely basing on the JRR Tolkien book "The Hobbit" AKA "There And Back Again"
Each Cache in this series will contain a clue that will be necessary to have in order to find a future cache. (designated by a multi-cache icon) It will be beneficial to write down each clue as you find the cache and keep it for future use. I hope to avoid patterns which will make future caches predictable. As all caches are found (not necessarily in order) the clues in them will ultimately lead to a final cache. Remember the placement of these caches is based on my intrepretation of the book -and having to work within the limitations and my knowledge of the local area. I will give a general clue for each cache based on the story.

This cache takes us away from Bilbo and company and fills us in on what Smaug is doing while away from his lair.
He is attacking the village...until Bard finds his weakness
and shoots him with an arrow, burying its head through Smaug's armor and into his heart...Smaug is dead.
