Are you ready for the 2014 Mad Gab Challenge ?  We are!

This challenge will consist of four caches located around beautiful Pocahontas County. For this challenge you will need to bring with you your GPS unit, a magnifying glass, and a pair of binoculars (any pair of bird watching binoculars will be suitable for this challenge). At each cache you will need to find and unscramble the 'Mad Gab' phrase; once you have completed the four phrases bring to our office to collect your coin. Here's a copy of the Geocache form.


Families, Boy Scouts and individuals completing the Challenge will receive a custom coin.  This year's coin was designed and produced by a team of scientist here at the  National Radio Astronomy Observatory.  The Challenge will be enhanced by a First Finder prize.  Click here to get started at Geocache.com then search Pocahontas County Mad Gab to find the Challenge caches.
