THERE IS NO CACHE AT THE LISITED COORDINATES

It is the parking location for the final cache.

Below are five puzzles, only two have a solutions that will give you the correct coordinates for cache.

One solution consist of a five digit number ABCDE.
North 44 AB.CDE

The other contains a two digit number AA and a three digit BBB.[or in Rick’s case (NPO)]
West = 089 AA.BBB

As the cache name implies, the remaining 3 are nothing but red herrings.

Plane geometry
You are the pilot of a small commuter service at 0600 you take off with ½ the capacity of your plane.
At your first stop 3 people get off and twice as many get on.
At the next stop all of the original passengers get off and six get on bring you to full capacity.
At 1200 you stop at your third stop for lunch and have a fish dinner.
By 1300 you and 2 passengers board the empty plane, 2 more people board and you start on your first leg home, you have a little engine trouble and are forced to land at the same airport you just left.
One passenger deplanes, deciding to take the bus instead, the remaining passengers continue on with you till you reach your final destination.
Number of passengers on the final leg of your flight? Color and type of fish you had for dinner?

“Word” Problem
Determine the surface “area” of a frustum of a cone with a cylinder removed.
Where the height of the cone was equal to the "perimeter" of a regular polygon A, inscribed in a circle of equal circumference of the base of the cone and the sum of internal angles is 1620.
The height of the frustum only equals the "perimeter" of a regular polygon inscribed in the same circle containing 3 less sides than polygon A.
The sum of 5/7 of polygon B’s arc cords equals ¾ the circumference of the "cylinder".
The ratio of the hollow circle section at the bottom of the frustum to the top of the frustum is equivalent to the number of side of polygon [A] minus a "perfect" number.
The density of the Frustum is 4887 lbs per cubic yard.

Will except, Jeeps [White or yellow only those green one are just plain ugly] TBs, or transportation to a cache requiring water craft, for clues to solving this puzzle.
