Geocache Description:

Cache is not at the posted coordinates.

The other day, I visited my grandma, it had been quite a while since I had seen her. During our conversation I mentioned geocaching. What did I get myself into? She sounded really interested and decided to try hiding a cache herself. I didn't quite expect that, but I gave her a 3x1" camouflaged container, let her borrow my GPSr and have a shot at it.

Now, you don't know Grandma. She's not an outdoorsy type of person, and last time I checked, she wasn't the least bit tech savvy, I can tell you that. But she never gives up, so I really didn't know what would come out of this.

Today, I got a phone call from her. Guess what? She went to hide a cache. She said she turned the GPSr on and since she didn't know what to do next, she just pulled out her camera and took a picture of the screen! Ha! I can picture Grandma holding her vintage 1952 camera in one hand and the GPSr in the other and juggling with them to immortalize the moment.

The problem is, she was on her way to her round the world cruise and didn't have the prints yet. She had sent the pictures for processing and so she gave me the receipt number over the phone:

6A490134 - 5BB5 - 463C - BC6B - 53390D815723

I didn't quite understand where she said she got that from, so I called around and checked every film processing shop and camera store, none of them recognizes this receipt number. I'm starting to wonder about Grandma's abilities now. Anyway, since I have no idea what to do with this, I'm posting it here just in case someone figures it out. I'm guessing that if anyone knows, this would be the place to ask.

Thanks for your help!
