    My own Puzzle Cache

    This just goes to show you that those WHO you think are your friends will make fun of you!
    Maybe he is trying to help me out?
    I am not all that bright and I can't tell Which it could be?
    I saw this posted on GC today.
    http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache...9-e2bfccd72b58

    I have been working on trying to decipher that puzzle. What is a "Shift Key Encription"?
    I have tried to Google it and came up with nothing. I have spent several hours staring at it and I just don't get it!
    I have even seen a couple other cachers posting notes on it. I guess they are as smart as me?
    I thought for sure that I would be able to solve it before anyone else, because he named it after me.
    I just hope he isn't making fun of me! If so I will get even

    Has anyone ever seen HikerRon in a pair of overalls
    I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.

    wait a minute! AR-Hick has FRIENDS?

    Everybody that has met Hick has liked him.
    and all prominent geocachers should have a tribute cache done up for them.

    that's my story and i'm sticking to it.

    (notice, he hasnt found the cache yet

    I had to put that cache on my watchlist. That's going to be the best "found it" log ever. Well, when AR-HICK finally deciphers it anyway.

    Sorry AR-HICK i can't help you with this one.

    I'm not very good at foreign languages and those two long words he uses as hints sound like Russian or something.

    I tried to decipher those two words in all the translation dictionaries but none of them are any help.

    Maybe they speak that way in Colorado.

    Ya'll aren't much help, although I did look it up in the Cabotian Dictionary.
    This is all I could find
    Cabotian Dictionary

    HikerRon - HiK`R'on 1. Affluent Citizen who is way to smart for his own good. 2. Geocacher with the ability to seem smarter than he may be. 3. A person who likes to make fun of Hicks.
    I may have to resort to some other means of deciphering this puzzle ????

    Just wanted to add a little fuel to the fire. I've solved the puzzle but I'm not willing to drive the 383 miles to find the cache right now.

    You better get to Cabot AR-HICK before them Tenneseen's invade your cache. Looks like the Tenn. Hicks are pretty smart.

    I bet if you traded your overalls for a nice suit the Cabot Haberdasher would give you another hint.

    But that would be too much of a bribe.

    Maybe you could go to the middle of town and expand your search 500 feet in every direction and keep this up until you eventually find it.

    Just a thought.

    Not to make matters worse but my seven year old found it.. Might have taken two trips but he came up with a smiley. He is like a bloodhound though, thats why we call him the ShadowHound. This cache could have started a new series of caches called the Geobash Series. What will be next... Cabot-1 Morrilton-0
    Geocaching may be a sport, but it's also a way of life!

    ar-Hick just came in our store in Cabot, all wet from the waist down, saying he couldnt find the cache.
    i warned him not to go in that pond

    just kidding. he found the cache this morning, came by the store, and we had a good visit.
    no black eyes or anything
