Krypton: As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If you wish to repair/replace the cache sometime in the future, just contact us (by email), and assuming it meets the guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Geocache Description:

A easy and quick multi-cache about the life of one of Palo Alto's first settlers.

What?!? A park in Palo Alto without a cache? I'll fix that!

The posted coordinates take you to a corner of the park where you can learn a lot about the life of an early Palo Alto settler. The magnetic key case is just a short walk away. It's located at N37 24.ABC, W122 07.DEF, where

A = the 4th digit of the year in which the last train ran on the track.

B = the 3rd digit of the year in which this oak tree is born.

C = the 1st digit of the year in which the settler got married.

D = the 4th digit of the year in which the settler's mother arrived in Monterey.

E = the 1st digit of the year in which Palo Alto incorporates as a city.

F = the 3rd digit of the year in which an elementary school is named after the settler.

I believe that that this park is officially closed from 10:30pm until sunrise.

Have fun!
