Spend some time in Boston walking the famous freedom trail & visiting some historical spots on the way to the cache.

About This Cartridge

A geo-tour of some famous stops along the Boston Freedom Trail. After completing the tour you will be given instructions on how to find the geocache.

This is a super simple tour based wherigo. The next zone will open when you enter the zone you are looking for. No need to answer questions or pick up items, you just need to be in the current zone (within 15 ft) to trigger the next. After you enter that 15 ft zone buffer, click on menu and your next location will be available. At the end you will be given coordinates and a hint to the geocache location.

Goes with geocache (visit link)

Had a lot of fun doing this one. Finished it in slightly over an hour and a half (with a bit of sightseeing along the way). Everything worked perfectly... one of the most user-friendly WIGOs I've done to date.

This afternoon/evening program was walking the freedom trail.
To my annoyance I found the granary burying ground closed for public access. Unfortunately there was no sign why or when it would be open again. But I was lucky and found a way in on the other side. This I could continue the cartridge.
Since I didn't inform my self about the length of the trail I was a bit surprised about the distance I had to walk. It would have been nice if the correct attribute had been set.
I could find the final after a short search. Thank you for maintaining the cache and creating the cartridge.

On a New-England tour, this was the very first cashe to be visited. It was a good insight and a good starting point into a bit of country's history and a good way of exploring the city . The final coordinates were a bit off, but thanks to a previous log (and the hint), we looked "for the other one" and could retrieve the box quickly.
Thanks for developing this Wherigo and for hiding.
