smilingsteeles: It saddens me to archive this cache. It is one of my favorites. I just don't have the extra time or information needed to replace it. My hope is to place a cache with a similar theme with fewer waypoints. I'll put that on my to do list for winter time. Thanks to those who have found it and sorry to those who never got to the final. Be patient and I will get another one out there for you to visit.-smilingsteeles

Geocache Description:

This cache is in honor of one of my favorite movies, The Princess Bride. You must be familiar with this movie to do this cache. You can watch it or do some research. There are five stages to this cache and will take a bit of your time to do.

The geocache is located in Robertsville State Park and my hope was to show you all areas of the park. So, grab a horse (or car) and join the adventure of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge and true love.

The coordinates above are for parking near the first waypoint. To find the first waypoint you must answer the following question:

In what country does this high adventure take place?

  1. Florence (N38* 25.199 W090* 49.050)
  2. Guilder (N38* 25.698 W090* 49.109)
  3. Florin (N38* 25.056 W090* 49.133)

Once you have found the correct answer use those coordinates to find the next waypoint. Each waypoint will have a question. Choose the answer and if you are right you find the next waypoint, if you are wrong, "and I am never wrong" it will be a long day. The final is a LARGE yellow ammo box filled with LOTS of goodies and a FTF prize. You may need to know the following information in your search for true love.

  • Inigo is looking for a man with how many fingers?
  • Buttercup is from what country?
  • What are the dangers of the fire swamp?
  • What is the name of the powder that Vezzini drinks, killing him instantly?
  • Who gave Inigo and Fezzik the magic pill?
  • How many white horses did Fezzik bring?
  • Who fought Inigo at the top of the CLIFFS OF INSANITY?
  • What did Buttercup fall into while in the Fire Swamp?
  • What did Westley say when he was "mostly dead"?
  • Who can track a falcon on a cloudy day?
  • And while you are on your adventure don't forget, "people in masks cannot be trusted."


If you don't want to watch the movie you can do some research here at The Princess Bride Script.

The terrain rating is for the amount of ground you will cover throughout your trip.
