Geocache Description:

Second in a series of music-themed caches, "Musicians' Cache #2: Amadeus" is located in the Nature Study Woods in New Rochelle, NY. The listed coordinates are for the parking/first stage.


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

2006 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Austrian musical genius whose name has become synonymous with classical music. Symphonies, choirs, and opera houses the world over are honoring the master with special concerts and festivals. I decided to honor him with a cache.

Before you set out to find this cache, you must use your research powers to find two two-digit numbers associated with the following words and a Mozart composition:

1. "Jupiter"
2. "Prague"

The final coordinates are as follows:

N40 56.xxx
W73 48.yyy

Now drive and park at the coordinates listed at the top of this page, where you will find a brown sign (four boards). This sign will give you the rest of the information you need to find the cache.

To find xxx, take the number associated with Jupiter and double it. From this number subtract the number of of times the letter "C" appears on the sign.

NOTE: This "letter" has changed from the original description, as the sign has changed since the original was placed.

To find yyy, take the number associated with Prague and add 100. From this number add the total of number of words on the sign that begin with "W." You're off to find the cache!

NOTE: If your answer to either xxx or yyy is only 2 digits (and one of them should be), add a 0. Ex: 12 becomes 012.

The original cache was a standard ammo box, well-hidden. In December of 2010, cache was replaced with a camo'd 400 pill container. In October of 2018, cache was replaced with an ammo can. A spoiler photo is attached. Please hide the cache better than you found it.

Boots are recommended, as the trails here can be quite muddy thanks to our equine friends!
