Geocache Description:

THE GIVEN COORDINATES ARE NOT THE LOCATION OF THE CACHE. THERE IS A CLUE AT THE GIVEN COORDINATES TO HELP YOU SOLVE THE CRYPTOGRAM. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO SOLVE THE CRYPTOGRAM WITHOUT THE CLUE, YOU DO NOT NEED TO GO TO THE COORDINATES SHOWN. THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO WAYS TO SOLVE IT WITHOUT THE CLUE.

I like to do the cryptoquote every day in the Rockford newspaper. It is a rare day that I can't figure it out pretty quickly. But if you have never done one, it can be rather daunting. However, like anything else, it gets easier each time you solve one. If I can do it, you can do easily. I will admit that right now I have 4 that are giving me fits. I haven't given up, though. The cache is located at: XYBDR PYBDI DGY NOQBOOC DGY YXO WSXEDOC ZYSXD JOBY COFOX YXO COMYXNC GOCD OSQRDI XSXO NOQBOOC JOBY DGY WSXEDOC ZYSXD OSQRD DGY COFOX COMYXNC QYYN VEMU! This is an area of a lot of activity. You will need to use as much stealth as you can. Try to stay away during the time people are on their way to and from work. There is a business on the corner. The cache contains only a log, and for the First To Find a $5 gift certificate to Starbucks. If you are the FTF and hate coffee, you can leave it for the next person. You will need to bring your own pencil. Here is the clue: If you go to the coordinates given and look to the south you will see a sign in huge letters. The first letter in the sign equals R. The second letter equals U. The third letter equals H. The fifth letter equals D. On week days there are no clues for the cryptoquote in the newspaper. However, on Sundays you are given one letter. I have given you 4.
