That was the first thing I thought of -- the number of windows at the top of 
the Arch. You could use one side or both sides and I think you can find the 
answer online.

  Id say go for it if you want to:  The link to the profile is legit it appears 
and let it be up to them, thier reviewer, and GC if they have a proper cache 
and method of tracking finds.  We do have lots of items in St. Louis that could 
be used:  Someplace like the Arch where normal caches can't be placed but have 
something of interest to those near and far about st louis area or history of.

    I got an email today that I am sorta wondering about. Anybody know who this 
is and why they contacted me? I am attaching the whole email I received.

    We are hoping to put out a multi-cache here in the UK called “The Global 
Village” and want to ask a favour of you. Like most village based multi-caches 
this one requires the cacher to wander around the village collecting six 
numbers off buildings, park benches, milestones or counting the numbers of 
windows, chimneys etc on prominent buildings. Unlike the conventional village 
multi-cache we want each of the six locations to come from places far afield. 
Obviously the cacher cannot physically visit the locations spread across the 
world but will need to use contacts to get someone to visit on their behalf. We 
are hoping it will work on the basis that anyone can contact someone anywhere 
in the world in about six hops, ie one of your neighbours knows someone working 
abroad who in turn knows someone in the destination country, who in turn has a 
relative in the destination town etc. In this particular case the cachers will 
have to use Geocaching.com to make the hops.

    So, the favour we have to ask of you is this. Can you find us an 
interesting object in a village near you with a significant number attached, 
write a clue (and the answer!) exploiting the number (eg the number of round 
windows in the village hall is A), give the location WGS84 coordinates, and the 
location address? We will not be citing your username on the cache page so you 
will not be directly linked to the clues. If you are kind enough to contribute 
and are interested in what happens we will send you the cache number once it is 
out so that you can place a watch on it.

    Kind regards

    Paul & Hilary (aka bill&ben)
