Did this one in the rain. A couple of steps took a little work, but wasn't too bad overall. Have no idea how to get the unlock code, though :(

Thanks!

Wow! That was a challenge. Especially since numbers and math are not my particular strong point (LOL). Managed to brute force through a couple of sections, had a couple "hand smacking the forehead" moments, but generally had a great time. Luckily, I got to the Market as they were just closing things up, so was able to hustle through all the Zones and get it done before they rolled up the carpet for the night. Followed up the Cartridge with a dinner at the Coop with my GBA friends. Pretty perfect day all in all.....well except I had to work the first part of the day :P

This was a fun place to check out. One huge problem was when we called the number it was garbled and could not be understood. Glad Marky had done it and gave us a clue to finish it.

Also, tried to upload the gws thing and got the
The file was unreadable by the system. Are you sure you have a valid GWS file?

Where do we get the code?

After having brunch with BuckyD, WalruZ and GeoBaby, we decided to go do the Flea Market Wherigo Cartridge. After a bit of a shaky start, we got into the swing of things and were able to complete the mission. It was amazingly crowded today. Afterwards, we strolled through the Flea Market, but didn't end up buying anything besides a shaved ice and a couple of corn on the cob. Nice day to be playing about. Afterwards, we did a few nearby geocaches.

WalruZ, Geo Baby and I met up with Marky and Joani after a breakfast unevent to play this cartridge. Although we had some technical difficulties with our PPC device, Marky and Joani had 2 Colorados with the cartridge loaded and ready to go. I took over one of the Colorados but at one stage ended up entering information incorrectly and subsequently couldn't get back to the screen I needed to enter the info again, then I stupidly restarted the cartridge. I wasn't going to go all the way back to the entrance with the entourage in tow (or waiting for me), so we continued on with just Marky's device running. Another point of confusion happened toward the end, when it was unclear whether we should do something in real life or in the virtual cartridge world, but we resolved that by trial-and-error and went on to the finish. I think I need to become more expert on how to use our PPC devices in this way...
