Bring a group to help find clues. Good luck!

Epic Geocaching

The property owner has generously opened his property to the public and is excited about having a cache on the premises. Out of respect for the owner, I will pull this cache if there are any bad reports.

This cache is available 24 hrs a day but the difficulty goes up after dark. If there is snow on the ground or objects, the clues may not be visible.

This can be a busy place so BEWARE OF MUGGLES. There may be people there all hours of the day and night. Do this on a Thursday night and you can cache to live music. You will probably run into the owner while you are there. Thank him for allowing a cache in his great place.


The Rules:

Park and/or start this adventure at the above coords ONLY. This is not life threatening but it makes the second rule easier.

From the parking coords head straight to N 40 34.123 W 084 11.043 and enter the tall gate. If you do not see a gate, you may be at the wrong place. As you approach the gate, it will be obvious if you are in the right place.

The entire property except the driveway is surrounded by a wrought iron fence. This is your playground for the next couple hours. The answers to all the clues below are in PLAIN sight. There is no need to rummage, bushwhack, move objects or enter any of the buildings to get the clues. You just have to get your head in the right spot and open your eyes. The clues are distributed throughout the property so don’t forget the front yard.

The clues make you search for objects to obtain the needed numbers. Their real intention is to force you to see and experience all that is to see here, as impossible as that may be.

Leave no stone unturned but DO NOT TURN OVER ANY STONES!

BRING YOUR CAMERA! Nobody will believe you.
