Watertown History Cache

The best multi-cache we've done so far - The Watertown History Cache - covers a portion of history of Watertown, MN. Comments left by some of the finders...

  • "AWESOME!!"
  • "What a great container!"
  • "Caches don't come any better than this."

The finder has to discover three separate caches; Tyler Got Old, Furrow, and Skinny Mills. Then the finder has to assemble & decode the clues taken from each cache. Those clues reveal the coordinates of the final cache.

When we had all the clues, we retired to the Luce Line Lodge (a must stop when in Watertown) to decipher them. I can't tell you how the deciphering was done, but it involves a magic decoder device. Even with it in my hands, I had no idea how to use it. But the revelation came to us like a bolt of lightning. It was brilliant! So much fun. One of the caches even included finding a birthday cake geocache.

Update: Furrow has been archived! The cache container, chain, pulley were all stolen. It's no wonder. This cache was in plain view of new housing in the area. It was only a matter of time.
