Geocache Description:

This puzzle cache is NOT at the published coordinates listed above.

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.

Nearby is a 3.5-difficulty cache, "Ancient Secret", that requires decoding Egyptian hieroglyphs. Well, the ancient Egyptians had a way with mathematics as well, and it's a bit more complicated than what most of us are used to handling. "Zep nefer, chen!" -- Good luck, folks! There is a golf pencil included inside, but you can't always rely on those... I also placed an unpublished "FTF" trackable for the FTF! (This cache was procured from Cache full of Cache(s). Thanks!) Congratulations CasheNCarry for finding the cache 1st!
