Description   EN   

This cache will take you on a tour through the Washington State University campus. Go to the coords listed for parking (payment required). If the spots are taken, head a few blocks North or West to find some meter parking and eventually you'll find some free roadside parking. Sorry about the parking situation, it is a college campus, after all.

This cache will take you to 10 different waypoints. Each waypoint will require you to look at your surroundings to figure out the number needed for the final. Two of the waypoints are located inside the Compton Union Building. This building is open to anyone, for no charge. The hours of operation are usually 6am-2am M-F, 10am-2am Sat/Sun. Holidays, school breaks, and large weekends effect the hours of operation. Check cub.wsu.edu for current hours before heading out. Below is a list of waypoints with a question and math to figure out the number that corresponds with the letter. Go to http://nuttyguy.com/geo/CCP.pdf for a downloadable (and printable) PDF file with all the waypoints and questions. It might make this cache a little easier for you.

Take lots of pictures and enjoy the tour. Cache should take 1-2 hours. Bathrooms, water fountains, atm's, restaurants, gift shops, and coffee shops are all located in the cub. If you like this cache, favorite it, bookmark it, and share it!
