Description   EN   

This cache can be a stand alone cache or part of the planetary trail that I have created over the years. You will be seeking the marker for the planet Uranus.

The B&A Trail is a park and is open from dawn to dusk (notice the limited hour attribute). Wink

The B&A Trail is about 14 miles long and paved with asphalt. It parallels MD Route 2 most of its length. There is a connector at the northern end to put you on the BWI Trail which circles BWI Airport. The B&A Trail is a very popular trail for walkers, runners, inline skating and bicycling. I walk/run a portion of it for exercise starting at the Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie.

Parking is available very near the cache location. Remember to bring a camera or something to write with.

I hope you noticed that the cache has an offset attribute, so there will be some field work once you find the marker. When you find the marker project a waypoint, in feet.

Let the first four numbers on the marker = ABCD

Distance to travel, in feet = EFG
E=2*A
F=C
G=B
E+F+G checksum = 17
Bearing in degrees = LMN
L=D-A
M=E
N=D
L+M+N checksum = 9

Please stay on the trail to within 10 or so feet of the final. You will find the cache just a few feet off of the trail. I placed the plants and critter attributes as this area may not get attention from the grounds personnel.

You must physically visit this location to take credit for this cache.

The confimation code is at the bottom of the BIT cache itself. Please leave it the way you found it. Thanks!

I do believe that I will have the last laugh. Laughing Let me know if I do.

Still working on getting all the planets. This one was no problem. Lovely bike ride up on a Sunday when it was sunny for a few hours.
