Cache attributes

Kid Friendly  Big Rig Friendly  GeoHotel 

Please read the Opencaching attributes article.
Description EN

The cache is not at the listed coordinates.

In order to find this cache, you will need to answer some questions about Troop 424 of Savage, in particular, and the Boy Scouts of America, in general.  These answers will allow you to calculate the actual coordinates of the cache container.

The final coordinates are N 39 AB.CDE / W 76 FG.HJK

A = Number of Eagle Scout Ranks earned in the year it was introduced.

B = The first digit in the address of Troop 424's meeting place minus 1.

C = Number of stars on the Eagle Scout Badge

D = Number of Boy Scout "ranks" (to include the "joining badge")

E = Troop's PO Box is XYZ.  E=(X-Y)+Z

FG = Troop 424 was founded in 19VW.  FG = VW+3

H = Number of letters in the 2nd point of the Scout Law (the single, specific word)

J = Minimum service hours required for Star or Life rank.

K = Number of Eagle ranks earned in the troop from 1982-1997

NOTE - You will not need to disturb any vegetation to retrieve the cache.

I've added the "GeoHotel" attribute and would be glad to see various GeoKrety or other trackables pass thru.

After nearly 2 years, I've decided to go ahead and list this on Geocaching.com to share the fun and make it useable to our scouts toward their Geocaching Merit Badge.  I have, however, added a hint here that will not be on the other listing.
