The above coordinates are not the real location of this cache!
You must first solve the SoDuku puzzles below to obtain the coordinates for this cache. Plug in the appropriate numbers from the puzzles below. The real coordinates are:
N 41 3A.BCD
A SuDoku puzzle must have all of the digits 1 thru 9 in each row, each column, and each of the nine 3x3 boxes.
W 93 4E.FGH
These two puzzles should only have one possible solution, but make sure you are in the general Des Moines area before you start hunting.
You MUST approach this cache from the east, NOT from the south. Subtract about .200 from the west component to set your parking coords.
You may email me your solution, and I will verify it for you, but I don't know how quick my response will be. Better yet, use this handy coordinates verification link, and you don't have to wait for me:
It has come to my attention that some people may be "cheating". I can't do anything about this, but keep in mind that these puzzles are designed to test your brain, not some computer program. I would ask that the "cheaters" wait at least a week to do this cache, to give the real puzzlers out there a chance for the FTF. Thankyou.
