How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

A quick little multi-cache that will take a little time, a little observation, and a little brain work. NOTE: Equations and coordinates for final location were changed on January 1, 2006.

The posted coordinates take you to a spot where an old palindrome is visible. Call the palindrome "abcd". When you find it, use it to give you what's needed for the final coordinates, where:

(a+b+c+d)- 10 = number of decimal minutes added to the last three numbers of the posted latitude for final coordinate

and

((a+b)x(c+d))-33 = number of decimal minutes subtracted from the last three numbers of the posted longitude for final coordinate

The camoflauged waterproof match container holds a Cache note, log sheet. You'll have to bring your own pencil. It's important to leave the container just as you found it!
