Nothing Could Be Finer Than To Cache In Carolina!

THE CACHE IS NOT AT THE COORDINATES ABOVE!!!

You are looking for a plastic, camoed container. Some bushwacking involved. Not much of a trail except the one you make. This is near the city, but you quickly find yourself in the woods. During the warmer months, there WILL be snakes and other kritters. I highly recommend a walking stick to give a target for any unseen wigglies!

Human rest stops are easy to find. Maybe a traveling bear needs a rest, too!

Do you remember the question, "Does a wild bear...?" Well, you know the rest!

Everything you need to find the actual coordinates are right in front of you.35You have two eyes...Use them both.43Use your deductive reasoning.899

Don't leave any one stone unturned.81Remember, two heads are better than one.07If you really need help, you may want to ask Double-zero-seven. How many "bear cubs" are they?680

There you have it.

NOTE: After you "solve" the puzzle, use this calculation to check your findings:

35 XX.XXX
81 YY.YYY

XX.XXX * (times) YY.YYY = 337.14432


Original contents of cache are:
  • Log and pen (Please don't take the log and pen!)
  • North Carolina Geocoin
  • A large-carabiner
  • GPSr food (AA batteries)
  • First Aid To Go! (mini-first aid kit)
  • Emergency Poncho
  • On The Go Trash Bags (1 gallon size with dispenser)
  • Dog training whistle
  • Bouncy ball
  • Ant ring
  • Rubber snake

This page displays the detailed description for a cache.

Explanation of buttons. Depending on whether you are the cache owner or not, different buttons will be available.

  • Log your find: Click this button if you found the cache. The right to log a find is defined by the cache owner. For traditional caches, it usually means you signed the paper log.
  • Log your DNF: Click this button if you attempted to find this cache and failed (Did Not Find).
  • Add a note: Click this button if you did not hunt this cache, but want to add a comment about it anyway.
  • Review this cache: New caches are reviewed by volunteers using the cache descriptions submitted. Until reviewed, new caches will not, by default, appear in search results. Reviewers should be independent and impartial. You cannot review your own cache. Do not review your friends' caches. Click this button if you want to review this cache. Your review will be public information.
  • Grab it!: If this is a moving cache or hitchhiker and you have found it and took possession of it, click this button to record your log, which signals other players that the cache is on the move.
  • Move it!: If this is a moving cache or hitchhiker and you have re-hidden it, click this button to record the new location.
  • Edit cache details: If you are the owner of the cache, click this button to edit the cache description.
  • Watch this cache: Click this button if you want to receive an email every time a new log is added. (You can see the list of caches you are watching by going to your Profile.)
  • Quit watching: If you already watching this cache, click this button to delete this cache from your watch list.
  • Ignore this cache: Click this button if you want to filter this cache out of all future cache searches you do. You can see the list of caches you are ignoring by going to your Profile. Although other players cannot see your profile, be warned that it is still possible for other players to determine which caches you are ignoring.
  • Quit ignoring: If you are already ignoring this cache, click this button to delete this cache from your ignore list. This will work only for caches you have explicitly selected for ignoring, not for caches on another player's ignore list that you have decided to share.
  • Show logs: Click this button to see all the logs for this cache.

Explanation of fields. Depending on what cache attributes were supplied by the cache owner, not all of the following fields will be visible.

  • Name: the name given to this cache by the hider.
  • Owner: the player who placed or adopted this cache.
  • Country: the country where the cache is placed.
  • Region: the state, province, bundesland, kantone, etc. where the cache is placed.
  • Near: the nearest city or town, based on a database of over 3 million place names. Use this as a guide only. Accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • Latitude: the latitude (WGS-84) where the cache is placed.
  • Longitude: the longitude (WGS-84) where the cache is placed.
  • Hidden: the date that the cache was hidden.
  • Cache type: see Cache Types
  • Difficulty: a subjective rating from 1 to 5 describing the difficulty in finding the cache itself or solving the puzzle needed to learn the cache's location.
  • Terrain: a subjective rating from 1 to 5 describing the environment, taking into consideration the length of the hike, trail condition (or lack of trail), elevation changes, etc.
  • Equipment needed:
    • 4 wheel drive: a site far enough off paved roads to make travel in a 4 wheel drive vehicle recommended.
    • Boat: anything from a canoe, rowboat, or kayak, up to a cruise ship to a private island
    • Diving gear: anything from snorkeling to Scuba tanks
    • Climbing gear: anything from ropes to oxygen tanks
    • Proper clothing: anything from a swim suit, or long pants and long sleeves, to hazmat protective suits (let's hope not)
    • Compass: perhaps for navigating from one waypoint to another in a multiple stage hunt
    • Flashlight: perhaps for night caches
    • Phone/Radio/Internet: if some kind of communications is required (e.g., for the geocacher to tell someone to capture a screen image of himself on a web cam), check this and specify details in the comments
    • Other: Specify in comments
  • Environment:
    • Safe: sites that do not put geocachers at undue risk of injury or death.
    • Kids: suitable for children. At the minimum, an environment safe for young children to walk and run freely. At the maximum, a location with activities to keep young children amused before or after the geocaching hunt. The cache theme should be suitable for children.
    • Public or private: Public sites are generally accessible to the general public. Private sites are not. Examples of public sites: city streets and parks, private businesses that serve the public, such as stores and amusement parks, private land that is unmarked and unfenced and that you have obtained permission from the landowner to place a cache.
    • 24x7: accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week
    • Free: no admission charge required for entry
    • Non-commercial? a cache, cache contents, cache site and cache description that are not intended to solicit customers. This includes solicitations for non-profit organizations and causes.
    • Parking: either a site with its own parking lot or adjacent to a paved street where parking is allowed.
    • Handicap access: a site that has made provisions for people with mobility difficulties, both in reaching the cache site and retrieving the cache itself
    • Dogs: A site where dogs are allowed and can be off leash.
    • Permission granted: a site where the cache owner has explicit permission from the landowner to place this cache. A "no" answer is used if there has been no contact with the landowner. A "no" answer is not an admission of a violation of land use laws or private property rights.
  • Cache condition: the general condition of the cache container and its contents, considering things as wet/dry, damaged/restored, empty/restocked, etc.
  • Rating: After three players have found and rated this cache for overall experience, an average rating will be computed and displayed.
  • Waypoint: the ID for this cache in the database.
  • Maps: links to mapping sites.
  • Nearest: links to other caches hidden nearby.
  • Watches: a list of players who are "watching" this cache.
  • Ignores: a count of players who are "ignoring" this cache.
  • Description: A description of the cache.
  • Hint/Spoiler: Encrypted information that provides hints of the cache location. No automatic decryption is provided (you shouldn not expect to have it too easy, after all).
