Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the listed coordinates!
Do not go looking there. There is no container to find there.

(But it IS a blue spot on the map.)

In case you haven't run across a "KenKen" puzzle before (it's also called "mathdoku" and "calcudoku"), we've listed some of the directions you might want to know about the puzzle. Once you solve this particular puzzle, you will see numbers in the boxes that have the letters A-F in them in the grid. Replace the corresponding letters in the red coordinates shown below with those numbers. You can then find the cache container, a bison tube, at that winter-friendly location. It's not all that hard... just use a bit of brain power (or an online solver, if you're ... lazy).

Some directions for solving this puzzle and others similar to it:
  • Fill the whole 7x7 grid, one digit per square.
  • Use the digits 1-7 so that there is one and only one of each digit in each column and each row.
  • An outlined box can contain a repeat of a digit as long as they are not in the same row or column.
  • Within each box, place chosen digits so that they give the indicated number for the box by using the indicated operation. ( + is add; - is subtract; * is multiply; / is divide )
