Found it Team Mumu found Lost City of Babylon

Saturday, October 20, 2012New Jersey

This is it - the big milestone #4000. We actually look at the entire Lost Cities series collectively as being the milestone find, but from a precise numbers perspective this is the one that actually ticked over the counter. It was great having the cache owner along for the journey and being able to include Eric in the celebratory champagne toast to mark the occasion. Also along for the journey were Kevin aka: taxman417 and Matt of Team MSG whose hides coincidentally marked our milestone's 3900 and 3800 on the epic journey to get to 4000 in time for the Lost Cities adventure. Whew! I think I'll take a break now :-).

It's also cool to have Babylon be the milestone lost city. We saw a great exhibition called "Before Pythagoras: The Culture of Old Babylonian Mathematics" that we really enjoyed not too long ago http://isaw.nyu.edu//exhibitions/before-pythagoras/ . It was at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World which fits in really well with this cache series.

Cheers,
Lynn & John

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
