Geocache Description:

Two stage cache. Solve the Lego puzzle at the first cache by building the items with Legos. Then find the coordinates to the second stage nearby where you can trade your special Legos. Head up the Zinfandel Trail, then take a secondary trail to the cache. Please be very careful - there is a lot of poison oak in the area.

We love Legos and were inspired by WeBeDND's Lego caches. At the first stage, you'll find a small bag of Legos and pictures of Lego boats and Lego robots. You'll only be able to build one boat and one robot with the Legos included. Build the boat, and write down the the coordinates on the back. Then take the boat apart, build the robot, and write down the coordinates on the back. You'll now have the coordinates of the second stage nearby. These are simple Lego creations, but the color and size must be exactly as in the picture, so make sure your creation matches exactly, or you may have built one of the wrong ones (you don't want to use the coordinates on the back of the wrong ones).

The second stage, in a Bionicle container of course.

Overall FTF gets a sweet treat. There is also a special prize from Zapboy for the first person under 12 years old who solves the puzzle and reaches the second stage. Please let us know in the logs who this Lego-crazy kid is!

If you don't know anything about Legos, you'll still be able to get this cache. We intended to make this hard enough so that you can't just look at the pieces and tell which one is correct - you have to build them. However the youngest Lego builder should be able to make them. The little ones may need mom and dad's help to tell which of the creations is exactly as in the pictures.

Park is open 8am to 1/2 hour before sunset. Here's the Trail Map. You can park near Sycamore Group Picnic area (for free along the road) or in the Picchetti Ranch parking lot on Montebello Road.

Note: 12/27/06 added more instructions on the Lego building to hopefully make it easier.
