Geocache Description:

The waypoint listed is a placeholder only – you need to do some homework before you can find this cache. The real cache is within 3km of this spot. NOTE: YOU WILL NEED A SPECIAL TOOL TO RETRIEVE THIS CACHE

Puzzles around here are too easy, so it is time to raise the bar a little.

We don’t have a cache that needs a special tool here yet either, so this cache is a test for the puzzle-solving, tool carrying caching geek.

In June 2003 some learned people published document uvw.xyg. You need to find what this document number is, and use the tool it describes.

After your research, solve this simple puzzle:

K = u ÷ 2

L = u + x

M = u

N = u – w

O = v + y

P = y

Q = u - y

R = w + x + y + x

S = w + y + x

T = y- x

Go to 37 KL.MNO, 175 PQ.RST, then use the tool to discover the final co-ordinates.

After a rather drastic makeover of the park, we have had to reduce the cache size to a 400ml sistema.

Please ensure you re-hide the box well against the post - we need to be carefull to ensure it is not seen by muggles.

One of a series of technology caches in Hamilton. If you enjoy this one, then have a look at GC1PRKD and GC1M8WV
