FSU*Noles: Container has been removed and the cache is archived. I always did have a soft spot for this one, and am glad it lasted over 9 years. Special thanks to bauercache14 for the help, and thanks to everyone who visited!

Geocache Description:


CACHE IS NOT AT THE ABOVE COORDINATES!!


Cache Details

The cache is not at the posted coordinates, but it is nearby. The coordinates above will take you to a specific location, that for me marks the exact halfway spot between my house and my job in Bloomington. When I pass this spot on my daily commute home, I know there's finally some light at the end of the tunnel!

To find the actual coordinates of the cache, go to the posted coordinates and answer the following two questions. You should be able to do this part from your car, but if you prefer to do it by foot, please don't pull over on the busy highway...you can walk it from the pizza place nearby if you wish. The questions are:

1. What animal do you see here?
2. How many are there?

Write the answers down, using word(s) for the first answer, and a number for the second answer. Take all the letters in the first answer, and convert them to numbers using A=1, B=2, C=3,...Z=26. Then follow the instructions below:
  • Add ALL the numbers from the first answer together, to get a sum. This is SUM1.
  • Add SUM1 and the value of the second answer together, to get a new sum. This is SUM2.
Your coordinates then for the final hide location are:

N 45º 01.(SUM1 + 119); W 093º 28.(SUM2 + 220)


Location, Parking, and Access

This is meant to be a quick and fun Kids and Family caching experience, in our old hometown of Plymouth. My oldest daughter Mei-Mei helped to put this one together, scouted the location, and placed the final in it's hiding spot! It is located in a Plymouth City Park, with plenty of free and legal street parking within 80 feet of the final hide. You're looking for a 7.8 cup Lock 'n Lock container, with the usual assortment of new toys and trinkets, plus a West Tennessee geocoin for the first interested finder.

Please do not post the answers to any of the questions in your log, no matter how cleverly you do it...As always - thanks, have fun, and happy hunting!
