Geocache Description:

*** Cache is NOT at listed coordinates ***

This Word Search uses words which describe grandchildren’s personalities, some of the places they like to go and the things they like to do. We are dedicating this geocache to grandchildren everywhere and the happiness they bring to their grandparents. Do the word search below and then follow the directions to find the correct coordinates.

Word Search Words

comical dream energy fun happy helpful
hiking hugs laugh love memories movies
pictures playcatch quizzical smart special swings

Use the completed Word Search to fill in the equations below.
There are 225 squares in the Word Search grid and each square has a numerical value from 1 to 225. A1 = 1, O1 = 15, A15 = 211, O15 = 225 etc.

(c)omical (d)ream (e)nergy (f)un (h)appy
“A” “B” “C” “D” “E”
(h)elpful (h)iking (h)ugs (l)augh (l)ove
“F” “G” “H” “I” “J”
(m)emories (m)ovies (p)ictures (p)laycatch
“K” “L” “M” “N”
(q)uizzical (s)mart (s)pecial (s)wings
“O” “P” “Q” “R”

The location of the first letter of each word in the search has a value based upon the square in which it is located. Here’s how it works. The first letter of the first word, comical, is ( c) and is located at grid O6 which has a value of 90. Since the ( c) in comical is represented by the letter “A” then A=90. Now find the value of letters, “B” through “R”. Once you have the all the values, you will then be able to solve the equations below to get correct coordinates. (Math Rule: Always multiply & divide before adding & subtracting.)

N 41(G-L-P) (M*L-E) . (B-O-F*M) (I-J-M-F) (E/L)
N 41 ____ _____ . _____ _____ _____
W 090 (M-F) (D-H) . (C-R-F) (K-Q) (A/F-N-F*F)
W 090 ____ _____ . _____ _____ _____

Happy Caching!
