Geocache Description:

The cache is not located at the posted coordinates. Read the description to figure out how to find the cache.

Some set records for being the fastest. Other less talented people may rely on perseverance in order to set new standards.

Recently, many local cachers woke up at odd times in the morning for sixteen straight days. Of course, they sought prizes for their dedication. Some people are just insane and do it for no good reason whatsoever.

Part One
You will need to use the internet or other reference sources to find the following data. The numbers you obtain will give you a set of coordinates that you can use in Part Two.

  • Arnie Wilson on 12/31/1994. (First digit)
  • David Witthoft on 12/16/2005. (First digit)
  • Larry Davis on 2/18/2000. (First digit)
  • Dale Webster on 2/29/2004. (First digit)
  • Donna Griffiths on 9/15/1983. (First digit)
  • Mark Covert on 9/1/2005. (Second digit)
  • Ron Hill on 12/21/2004. (Third digit)
  • Robert Armstrong on 1/15/1969. (First digit)
  • Harry Kraft on 4/1/2005. (First digit)
  • Harvey Pollack on 3/24/2006. (First digit)
  • Ahdili on 5/11/2002. (Second digit)
  • Tim Challies on 1/13/2006. (Second digit)
  • Frivlas on 4/10/2006. (First digit)
  • Valeriy Polyakov on 3/12/1995. (Second digit)
  • Richard Rodriguez on 8/25/2002. (First digit)


Part Two
Starting at the coordinates derived in Part One, you will see points heading southeast and southwest. Determine the number for kablooey on 4/10/2006 (all digits) and follow that number of points southeast to the cache. You do not have to go inside any gates. The cache is an uncamouflaged blinker thin magnetic strip, hidden out of sight, below the point in question.

I counted the points three times (they are not regular). Make a note of where the cache is when you retrieve it, so that it is replaced under the right point. Although this cache is hidden almost completely out of sight, following the directions should leave you very few places to check.
