Barking Dog Cache
In Iowa, United States
How Geocaching Works
This geocache is located on the grounds of a high school. You will be on paved surfaces and will not have to walk far. You may need a calculator and something to write on. You probably won't experience the cache name-sake but if you do, he's behind a fence and harmless.
Stage 1: Walk to the coordinates listed above. Look up at the building and write down the year engraved near the top (This is hard to see if it is dark out).
Using the Stage 1 coordinates, replace the last three digits of each coordinate as follows:
Add 294 to the first three digits of the engraved year (i.e. if the year is "ABCD", 294 + ABC). This will give you the last three digits of the N (latitude) coordinate.
Subtract 662 from the last three digits of the engraved year (BCD - 662). This will give you the last three digits of the W (longitude) coordinate.
You now have the coordinates for the cache.
The cache is in a red plastic container with camo tape on top.
