Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the above coordinates! Instead, you must follow the directions below...

Reservoir album cover

Best matching photo by Trail Buzzards!

First, you must find the location where this album cover photograph was taken. If you are already familiar with the Wachusett Reservoir, this task may be easy. However, the difficulty and terrain ratings assume you will be doing some amount of trial and error, circling the Reservoir until you find the correct vantage point. Some areas around the Reservoir are off limits, so please obey all posted signs! Park where it is safe to do so, and don't block any gates.

Now take the coordinate of your vantage point, and offset it by +.166N, -.631W. This is the location of the physical cache. The more accurate your vantage point coordinate, the smaller your search radius will be. It is certainly possible to determine the exact location based on the photograph. The regular size ammo can is about 100' off trail, though the area is not terribly dense in all places.

The cache is a CD trader, so please don't leave other trade items. Travel bugs are welcome, though! Feel free to take a CD even if you don't leave one, as long as there are at least 3 or 4 left in there. Similiarly, you can leave one without taking one, as long as there is enough room! Only legal copies of CDs may be placed in the cache. See if you can guess what the cache is originally stocked with.

Optionally, you may take a photograph from your vantage point and post it with your log. We will showcase the closest match we've received to date in the cache description next to the original. (You don't have to be in the photo.) Have fun with it!
