There are 4 steps with only one actual cache (hidden treasure) to find. The first two clues can be done by automobile and the last requires walking maybe slightly over 1/2 mile.
I have corrected the error in the original coordinates. 1/07/03
#1 clue is at N41.17.166 W092.33.289
Note the two numbers and add 543 = ABC
Use this for clue #2

Decode the five letter name for this lane using the code A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4. ECT. Then add the five number together and multiply by 10
Use this three digit number for clue #3
#3 clue is at N41.17._ _ _ W092.32.192
This location lists a company number. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd digit coded as (X,Y,Z) and use for #4 clue
#4 Is the actual location of the cache (hidden treasure) Using the clue from #3 insert the X,Y,Z and find it at N41.1X.X4Z W092.32.514
The cache is a green ammo box. It was fairly well hidden, but seems to manage to get uncovered, so please, when returning it cover it up. This area gets a lot of traffic in the Spring and Summer.
Initially the cache includes: a fur-by toy, Velcro strips, super glue, refrigerator magnets, candles, earrings and a travel bug.
