Dead Reckoning: Part 2 of our Geocache Adventure

UPDATE: We have recieved comments from several of our treasure hunters asking whether the treasure had already been claimed. When we went to check on it – still there! – we realized a some additional information might be necessary – as well as a new (clearer) starting point. If you’re planning to try again (or for the first time) start here:

N 29 degrees, 43″ 18.5′
W 95 degrees, 23″ 25.5′

Everything else is still the same. Once you reach this starting location plot a course of 084 degrees magnetic, and take a number of paces equal to the license plate prefix of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Keep in mind that people have different length strides, but this should put you within a few feet of the hidden treasure. Also, should there be any bushes or trees in your path as you walk the paces, simply sidestep them for a few steps, you can still get to the end location without trampling anything.

Your big hint is PLW.

Good hunting!

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.
