I definitely feel like I earned this smiley. Right from the beginning I kept having to restart because I kept getting an error message, something along the lines of "can't be played in virtual mode." Not sure how I fixed that but on take four or five everything ran smoothly. I elected to just walk the whole thing (or I just didn't read the waypoint descriptions) since it was a nice day. Then I got to zone 4 (I didn't read any previous logs either) and was able to solve it with some googling. Glad there were no penalties by then. Then there was the cache itself. Even with the spoiler pic from the cartridge, it took me about 20 minutes of aggravation to come up with it. I would get a reading of 10 feet or less only to have it bounce to 40 a few seconds later. Finally decided to try the other side of the creek and spotted it in about a minute. Of course I also had to break out the tweezers for the log. Glad I was persistent on this one.

The last time I was here, I was probably 11 or 12 on one of my dad's Sunday excursions. I definitely didn't appreciate the museum or my dad's fascination with the canal workings then, but after reading all those markers closely today I think I understand.
