Dead Reckoning

UPDATE: The cache is still hidden – More clues can be found on our new blog post.

For the month of July, I have hidden another geocache near the Museum. To nurture the “inner pirate” of our readers,  it is a treasure – a vial of cut and polished colored gem stones. Additionally if you produce the vial at Museum Services (ask them to contact you will receive Museum passes and admission to The Nature of Diamonds exhibit. 

The first step is to find the GPS coordinates listed below. Once you have found this spot,  a compass is needed to steer a course of 084 degrees magnetic.  The number of paces is equal to the automobile license plate prefix for my hometown of Tuscaloosa,  Alabama. (That’s  a bit of trivia that will require an Internet search.)

 Good Luck.

The usual rules regarding geocaching apply: no digging, dismantling or destruction is necessary, nor is there any trespassing or climbing involved.
