Geocache Description:

The Coordinates listed is NOT where the cache is hidden. You must solve the puzzle below to find the Final Coordinates. This cache was hidden mainly to Thank fellow GeoCachers. It's hidden along a new Nature Trail and the cache is hidden in plain sight.

You must figure out the first letter of the following GeoCachers:

Cacher 1) This person is responsible for half the CVNT power trail series plus numerous other fantastic hides.
This person also is well known for taking & posting photos of himself near GZ.

Cacher 2) This person is the other master cacher responsible for the CVNT power trail series and many other great hides.
For a burrowing animal I don't know how so many of his caches end up high in trees.

Cacher 3) This biking couple creates the very best Multi-Stage caches around. I think I've added a favorite vote
for every one of them. Their traditional caches are equally as creative. It must be the wings.

Cacher 4) This person is responsible for the 2010 Days until Christmas series. Very Fun Series.
Other great caches have been hidden with the help of his daughter.

Cacher 5) This person is responsible for the H.A.C. series to honor Boy Scouts. I love the Eagle Scout hides because
I recieved my Eagle scout award when Jimmy Carter was President. I still enjoy the flag flown over the White House.

Cacher 6) This couple I think enjoys creating puzzle caches as much as they do solving them.
They also create Traditional caches that helps every one out just when they need it. The Size Does Matter series helped me out greatly.

Cacher 7) If there was an award for the most FTF's during the Days of Christmas series this couple would win the prize.
They also have a very impressive consecutive day streak of 370 days, and their pet dog even has their own user name. Wow!

Cacher 8) This person is responsible for the Bridges of County Series plus some very cool and well hidden caches.
You have to think outside the box to make some of the finds.

Cacher 9) This person is out in the trenches
almost every day with his Mag Flashlight in hand and almost always is one of the first few to make the find. This person also has hidden so many caches in Seminole Valley Park I think they are going to rename the Park in his name. The suspenders tell it all.

Cacher 10) This person actually lives in the state of 10,000 lakes, but I am alway blown away and inspired by the
amount of Caches found. Current total is over 70,000.

Now that you have your list of famous GeoCachers first letters, use that information to solve the puzzle below.

Example would be: "TeamBecks" A = [(cacher letter) - 15] or [T-15] = 5

A = [(cacher letter #1) - 14] = ?
B = [(cacher letter #2) - 17] = ?
C = [(cacher letter #3) - 12] = ?
D = [(cacher letter #4) - 4] = ?
E = [(cacher letter #5) - 18] = ?
F = [(cacher letter #6) - 15] = ?
G = [(cacher letter #7) - 6] = ?
H = [(cacher letter #8) - 10] = ?
I = [(cacher letter #9) - 7] = ?
J = [(cacher letter #10) + 6] = ?

Use the numbers above to fill in the Coordinate Digits.

N41' AB.CDE
W091' FG.HIJ

You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com.

There is a small access road near GZ but I recommend parking at the Trail Head in Ely to fully enjoy the trail.

Permission was granted to place this hide. Good luck and have fun.
