How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Well, seldom|seed2 couldn't stand the idea that seldom|seed1 had his own cache and she had to have one of her own right next to his (well, as close as you can get anyway). So we thought about it a bit and came up with an idea that reflected her love for visual art. The location is muggle heavy but you should try to do this one in daylight (or not).
The listed coordinates will bring you in proximity to the cache but not right on it. From where you are, you will see some signage that is the subject of the photograph below. To determine the location of the final you'll need to get some numbers from this signage. Take the first 3 of the 4 10-digit numbers and stack them in sequence as you find them on the signage. Next, working vertically, cross off the duplicate numbers appearing in each column. Arrange the remaining numbers in a row as they appear from top to bottom through the columns, moving left to right.
These number will be ABCDEFGEF and the final coordinates are N44°BC.FCD W88°FC.FCA
Once you find the final, you will notice that it is the optical device used to generate the image below. If you want, take a picture with your camera or phone and the optical device in the final. I've included a couple samples in the picture gallery that I took using my camera phone. The pictures can be of anything you like, be they physical attributes of yourself, fellow cachers or furry park critters. The only criteria is that you have some fun doing it! When you upload your image, put just the find date (MM/DD/YY) and your geocaching name in the caption (in that order). That way they will show up sequentially. I know getting a pic may be tricky, but give it your best shot and that will be good enough for me!
UPDATE: 4.8.08 Final location moved for a more winter friendly hide. Puzzle reflects update.
