Geocache Description:

There are 3 stages to this cache, then the final. There is a theme with the last two stages but I had to throw in the first stage to get approved (distance regulations).

At the first stage count the # of benches. Add 646 to this number. This number is JKL. Take same # of benches and add 81. This # is ST.

N 43* 26.JKL
W 093* 13.0ST

When you find the second stage there is some info imprinted on the object at one end. There is some imprinting that goes like this No. _ _ (it is a double digit #), use this number and add 881. This number will be ABC. Use the same # imprinted and add 756. This # will be EFG

N 43* 26.ABC
W 093* 13.EFG

At the third stage about 5 feet from the main black object there is a piece of cement that would hold something related to the big object. Count the # of dimples in the cement and add 914. This # is PQR. Using the same # from the dimples add 856. This # will be XYZ.

N 43* 26.PQR
W 093* 13.XYZ

Using the last set of coordiantes you should easily be able to find the final cache. It should be easy and is in a typical normal hiding spot. You will not have to go more than 15 yards from the mowed grass.
