Geocache Description:

About 3/4 mile total travel and a brief puzzle are required. The puzzle component is trivial and can be performed by a small child. It is meant to get you to look at what's around you, not befuddle you. All but the last few hundred feet are on asphalt paths. The cache can be completed in under 25 minutes on foot and much faster than that if you have any form of (non-motorized) wheels. Bug spray is recommended during the summer months.

This is a well known landmark; most of you have driven by it. But did you know it contains a bomb shelter AND a direct line to the president?

All but the last step of this multi-cache can be done on wheels ranging from a baby stroller to roller blades. I scouted it on foot, but did the research and hide on bike. I've since travelled the majority of this route on scooters and skates. The last step will require you to leave the path and leave any wheeled objects behind briefly. Take a pencil for working out the puzzle below.

The container has information sheets on the reason you're here. Even if you don't read them all, at least skim the one with highlights.

Park at the coordinates above. If you cannot get that precise parking space, improvise.

Enter the Big Tunnel. (If you have entered a tunnel with no lights, you have done WAY too much geocaching...) Let A == the number of light fixtures nearby.This step can be tricky. If you compute an answer that's not in this park, this step is probably where you went wrong.

Proceed to the sign that explains why you are here. Read the sign. Let B == the first digit you see on the sign. Let C == the last digit you see on that sign. Let D == A + B.

Proceed to 35°5D.8D3N 86°4C.653W. Let E == the number of pipes you're standing on. Let F == E + B

The final cache location is 35°FD.DB2N 86°EC.3BFW.

As affirmation, if you add A + B + C + D + E + F you will get a two digit number. If you add those two digits together, the sum is "seven". So if you don't get "seven" with the digits you've computed, you can either search the wrong spot or try again. :-)

A ___________ Number of Lights
B ___________ First digit on sign
C ___________ Last digit on sign
D ___________ A+B
E ___________ Number of Pipes
F ___________ E+B
