Geocache Description:

I re-did this fun hide today… (4/4/2010)
You are no longer required to look for any 'keys' but you will need to find the last three digits for the North Coordinates AND the last three digits for the West Coordinates.

This is pretty simple…
Go to the posted coordinates.
You should see something that looks like this:

Stand here and face North (an old rusty 55 gallon drum should be to the North of you) .
O.K. it's off to the right a little

Now take 40 paces (about 124 feet) to the North.
You will need to find something here that will give you the last three digits for the North Coordinates.

Now, face East (to your right).
Take 42 paces (about 128 feet) to the East and locate the last three digits for the West Coordinates.

Now go find the Cache!

You will be looking for a Decon at an altitude of about six feet.

Since the concept of this Cache has changed, the previous finder's of this Cache:
