We enjoy many freedoms and rights in this great county. Too often we do not stop and think about those who have made it possible. 21-Gun Salute is a series of five caches that will give you the opportunity to reflect; to stop and appreciate what we have and why we have it. To claim all five caches, you will visit 21 sites in Lake County*.
Visting the first 20 sites will enable you to solve the first four caches and give you information required to unlock 21-GUN SALUTE. The other four caches in the series are:
- GCQJ6J: 21-Gun Salute: Our Freedoms (F)
- GCQJ6N: 21-Gun Salute: Memorials (M)
- GCQJ6P: 21-Gun Salute: Service Then and Now (S)
- GCQJ6R: 21-Gun Salute: The Gold Star (G)
At the final location for each of the above caches, you will get a number to be used for the letters in ( ). Using these numbers, calculate the combination for the lock on the cache. The combination is:
The cache is in plain sight. Open the box, take an envelope and sign the log. Leave only your thoughts. Please reset the combination to 000 before you leave.
Our hope is that the time we spent developing the caches and the time you spend seeking them will make us better appreciate our country and those who have defended it.
*The caches are located throughout Lake county. The table summarizes coordinates and requirements for all sites. It will help you simultaneously work the five caches if you so desire. Please visit each of the cache listings before you start.
