I was using the Internet in my usual productive and educational way when I came across a website that offers us something to do while traveling to the cache locales.

The link is here but I offer a summary:

The game is to locate road signs that can be used in a balanced mathematical equation. If you are still reading, the picture below is one of the first (and few) Wisconsin finds:

Image

This qualifies as a find because 15 + 16 = 31.

Unlike geocaching, it’s all about numbers. Image
The current ‘leaders’ have 30+ finds/signs.

The game has rules that would make a geocacher rebel, but still it allows for ‘creative accounting’.

I just checked out the site. Pretty cool! Will have to show this one to the kids at school.

Oh no! A whole website of people whose brains work like mine! This is one of those things I have always noticed, although I tend to do it more with license plates instead of signs. I stopped mentioning these to Julie after the third "Yeah, real interesting (yawn)". Thanks for posting this.

I've driven by that sign almost daily for the last 10+ years and always thought it interesting that it "added" up. Now there's a game out there that supports that type of "thinking" and I'm on the inside looking out!!

That's just my luck, my curse, or dare I say my in appropriate verse?

Keep on cachin'!

I've seen that site. There's one near me that I'm going to get once I remember to bring a camera out with me.

Don't you need to make use of the "95" on your sign as well?
