Why this is the Geocache of the Week:
On March 14, aka Pi Day, you can earn two special souvenirs. One can be gained by attending an event. The other, by finding a Mystery Cache like this one. This Mystery Cache in particular takes you on a tour through the many art installations on and near the MIT campus. Throughout your journey, you’ll have to take a few directional readings and solve some relatively easy math. After you find this one, all you need to do is log an event for the other souvenir—and then, maybe there’s a surprise waiting for you…
What geocachers are saying:
“Finally! Brewer has been going to MIT for five years now and during that time he has been working to solve this. Patience, grasshopper. Well, sort of… there always seemed to be something that kept him from completing the cache. Today, he took his saved coordinates and went to GZ. His coordinates were within 6 ft. Not bad. So I guess all that time at MIT has helped. He even opened the log book. Seriously, this was a wonderful cache, A favorite in our book!” – Trail Buzzards
“Found it! Found it! Catkin is back in her office (on the campus of a fine institution…) doing the happy dance post-find, since that might have proven embarrassing at GZ. Add me to the list of seekers who did not recognize the cache and ignored it a frustratingly large number of times in search of this smiley. Fortunately I came prepared for the field work and the smiley is now mine! Cache container is in great shape, though the log is close to full. Thank you NTP for this engaging, edifying expedition!” – Catkin&Golden
“Waaa! Awesome! I finally discovered this brilliant little hide after several fruitless trips to the river (I couldn’t get the sculpture coordinates/bearings right and would wind up with a different GZ every time). What a wonderful cache– everything from the creative hide to the simple adventure-oriented puzzle to the beautiful buildings and sculptures and views. Here, have a favorite point to add to your well-deserved pile!” – Rainbow Crash
