Geocache Description:

Photobucket

After 30 years of honorable service in the US Navy, I decided that it was time to retire. A new type of adventure awaited me. Looking back on my life I can say that It had been one adventure after another. I had been lucky enough to serve with some great people, onboard some of the greatest ships in the world. I had visited far off ports and survived many a battle. My life's story can be found somewhere within the tales listed below. Can you piece these tidbits together and accompany me on the final voyage?

This cache can only be found after solving some of the other Sailor Jerry caches and recording their final coordinates. How many, or which ones, will depend on how lucky you are.

Use the last number of either the North (N) or West (W) “FINAL” coordinates only, as stated. Such as if the final coordinates for 'Sailor Jerry: Seasick' were N44 51.673 W 88 29.045 and the puzzle states “Q = Sailor Jerry: Seasick (N) + Sailor Jerry: Seasick (W), Q would be 3 + 5 = 8.

Solve for N44 4A.BCD W087 VW.XYZ

A = Sailor Jerry (W) + Sailor Jerry: Day of Infamy (N)

B = Sailor Jerry: Life At Sea (W) - Sailor Jerry: Gator Navy (W)

C = Sailor Jerry: Oceanus (W) + Sailor Jerry: Day of Infamy (W)

D = Sailor Jerry: Battle of Sunda Strait (N) - Sailor Jerry: Gator Navy (N)

V = Sailor Jerry: The Navigator (N) - Sailor Jerry: Oceanus (N)

W = Sailor Jerry: Full Astern (W) + Sailor Jerry: Battle of Sunda Strait (W)

X = Sailor Jerry: Life At Sea (N) + Sailor Jerry (N)

Y = Sailor Jerry: The Navigator (W) + Sailor Jerry: Full Astern (W)

Z = Sailor Jerry: Full Astern (N) - Sailor Jerry: Gator Navy (W)

The adventures never end.
