To find the cache coordinates, you will have to look up some geocaching history.
We have placed our “Original Stash” geocoin in the cache. Feel free to take note of the coin number and log the coin but leave it in cache for others to do the same.
Answer the following questions in order to find the cache.
A. The year in which the first cache (then called stash) was placed.
B. The state in which the first cache was placed.
C. The color of the first cache container.
D. The coordinates for the original cache were N 45 17.460 W 122 24.xxx
E. “Geocaching” was first coined by Matt___.
F. Jeremy____ created Geocaching.com.
Now that you have the answers, a few guidelines for what to do with these answers:
If the answer is a number, leave it as is. If the answer is verbal, convert each letter as follows:
A=1, B=2, C=3,…., Z=26. Then, sum the total of the resultant numbers. So, as an example, “Cache” would convert to 3+1+3+8+5. Totaling these, our final answer is 20.
The coordinates for the cache itself are: N 41 37.UVW W 091 32.XYZ
X= F ÷ 7
Y= C * 4 - 109
