Geocache Description:

This is an 8 step mystery cache in one of Columbus' parks (closed 10 pm to 6 am), and leads to an ammo can final, full of swag. You will need to take NOTES throughout your hunt, so be sure to have a note pad & pen along. As you will notice, you are going to have some decrypting to do, you will need the Clue Decoding Table now (which we've provided), as well as AT THE LOCATION to complete this cache.

To start off, you will need to begin your hunt at N 43° 20.550 W 089° 00.706, where you will find some dates. You will need to do a little math in order to get your next coordinates: At the above coordinates, you will find two separate dates. In order to get your next coordinates, GNXR GUR LRNE BA GUR CYNDHR = !$&) - A$#° "@>/// GNXR GUR LRNE BA GUR PRZRAG = !#(( - J@()° @@>/// From here on out, your next hints and coordinates will be located in different types of cache containers until you reach the final. *Congratulations 2olFarts on the FTF!!!! *(Want to make an honorable mention: My3SonsOfBeaverDam were first on scene the day this cache was published, but due to our error in transcription they couldn't get past the first waypoint and had to give up. Could've been their FTF?...we'll never know...we apologize)! All waypoints may not be findable in deep snow or during high water.
