I'm stuck on a puzzle cache GC1TY6G. Yes, it's in Ohio. All it shows are two JPG's of patterns. I've stretched, shrunk, changed the hue and color, and reversed the images, but can't discern a pattern.

Solved.

HP2 is correct. Stereograms or "Magic Eye" puzzles. This version has a little twist though which is pretty unique.

My eyes do not function correctly and I have never been able to see an image on that type of puzzle....kinda bums me out.

There's a couple of these in Appleton and I've been following one down in N.C. called Under A Rock that I solved but couldn't find.

That one shows you the rock and then the stereogram was made of the .jpg. Very cool.

Actually started to get a headache digging this one out. As CJ says, nice twist. Now just need to find someone to team up with in Ohio to make the grab.....that's OK, right? Shocked

Check out the enhanced Bing Maps. It's appears to be a pretty easy find, so do we really need to visit? Maybe when Hack1of2 is out there we can give them a little under the table to have them add our names to the log. wink

I'm with you, they have to be pretty obvious for me to "see" them, I can do the color things at the dmv w/o issue but not these.

You must relax and give yourself over to The Force. Do not fight it! Rather, become one with it. It's kinda like Tron, only different. Cool

TRY THIS: http://www.vision3d.com/methd02.html and notice the last word in the instructions: "COOL!" Good Luck!

I have great difficulty seeing in stereo. At the DMV when I pass the test I always consider my self lucky.

So I see the numbers now but I must confess that they are still just a little difficult to make out. Plus, there seems to be more there than you need, another part of the puzzle I suppose. But this is pretty intriguing, may have to create my own cache like this and dedicate it to the Hacks. Smile

Hmmm. Premium cache. Wonder what the CO thinks of all the hits from cachers in Wisconsin all of a sudden?

alrighty, this one lost me at step 1 when it told me to "Prepare to assume a slightly contorted position."

i fell off my chair laughing and now am seeing circling colorful stars Shocked
