Geocache Description:




We are relieved that you have successfully navigated the time stream and have arrived on Earth in the early 21st century. As stated before you left Ape City, stealth is off the highest importance. Apes in this century are considered entertainment and imprisoned in zoos. They will be of no help to you. If you are spotted by a human, this will cause alarm and endanger the entire operation. So again, be cautious, be safe, and be invisible.

Your first mission is straight forward. You will need to retrieve your field guide, which will aid you in the rest of your missions. At the final location for this mission, do not forget to locate the clue for Mission 11: Final Objective. Use the clue and coordinates to retrieve a letter code and copy it in your field guide. You may also choose to take a stamp and affix it in your field guide. Collecting one stamp from each mission will allow you to receive one limited edition Operation A.P.E. Pathtag upon completion of all 12 missions. Refer to your field guide for more information.

Warning: Due to the sensitive nature of this mission, your objective is not located at the posted coordinates! It is merely a convenient location to use as the starting point of your mission. Use the map located below in your effort to find the cache!

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