Geocache Description:


Fill in the Blanks

Cache is not at the posted coordinates - you must solve the puzzle to find the actual coordinates

Solving this puzzle is as easy as filling in the blanks with the words associated with the given numbers. Once you've filled the blanks, count up the number of letters in the answer to calculate the correct coordinates.

For example:

 24 h___ in a d___.
The correct answer is "24 hours in a day" so adding up the number of letters gives you 5 (hours) + 3 (day) for the answer 8

Got it? Good. Let's go!

Final coordinates are N 38 ab.cde, W 122 fg.hij where:
ab=O-P-Q+R+S-T+U
cd=A+AC+AE+P-W-K-V
e=A+B+C-D-E+F-G-O+P

fg=H-I+J+K-L-M+N+AF-AE
h=AF+AG+AH-AC-AD-AE-AI-B
ij=V+W-X-Y-Z-AA+AB+F

I strongly suggest that you verify coords with me once you've solved the puzzle :)

As an incentive to solve this puzzle, I've placed a pretty cool FTF prize - an unregistered 2007 Compass Rose geocoin. These sold out almost instantly, but I managed to grab one for this cache.
