Geocache Description:


NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO CROSS PRIVATE PROPERTY TO RETRIEVE THIS CACHE!!!

From Chicago Landmarks

One of the last of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's designs for a small urban house, this residence combines elements of the Prairie style with a compact plan well suited for its mid-block site. The inward orientation of the house--with its entrance virtually hidden from Sheridan Road--ensures the privacy of its residents and reflects Wright's ideas for the importance of family life. The house was designed for Emil Bach, who was co-owner of the Bach Brick Company and a great admirer of Wright's work.

Using the information available at Ground Zero, solve the following to find the final hiding spot for this cache:

First year on plaque = 19AB
Second year on plaque = 19CD
House number of location = 74YZ

3 x (C + A + Y) = EF
B x (3 x D + E) = LMN

Add EF to North coords, and subtract LMN from West coords to find the final spot for this cache.

CHECK SUM: E + F + L + M + N = 16

Container contains a waterproof log only, so bring your own pen (felt or ballpoint work best).

The cache area can be very busy, especially in summer months - so as always, use stealth!!! You may also want to wear shorts and sandals to blend in...
