KGC MAPS Many of the smaller caches have been moved to larger combined caches and as a result many of the legends will end up leading to an empty hole For this reason it is best to acquire information on as many as possible research them in advance and pick the most likely ones out before going out into the field Whenever a KGC cache was emptied or moved by the KGC additional symbols were placed on the stone markers to alert fellow members that the cache was no longer there By examining photos of known markers it is possible to determine which caches are worth going after and which are long gone KGC researchers talk about needing a series of two or three transparent overlays in order to make any sense out of the KGC maps This is not true When KGC operatives buried some of the larger caches they marked them with several stones having symbols cut into them as directions The markings were accurately inscribed with the help of these so-called overlays In reality the overlays were tracings taken from each stone and transferred to the next stone made onto the semi-transparent oil cloth material of their slickers raincoats To relocate the cache all overlays would be placed and aligned according to specific instructions over the key stone to produce a very specific map Losing the overlays made no difference since they were made from the markings on the stone in the first place they could be easily reconstructed in a matter of minutes once the original stone was found It is said that no records exist of the KGC after 1916 The locations of all the smaller caches and larger ones too were recorded on maps Each map was rolled up and put into a cylinder made from rabbit fur treated with cosmoline This tube was then tarred and finally waxed with bees wax The maps from all the caches
