Geocache Description:

The cache is not located at the posted coordinates and has been relocated since the original was muggled.

This is a puzzle cache originally created for the "Oxnard Open - Puzzles & Pleasure" event (GC167QP) in October 2007. This is an EASY (and hopefully FUN) puzzle!! Special thanks to G-WIZ and GSMx2 for their help creating this.

And now... for the puzzle!!

Remove one letter from each word below so that the remaining letters form a word relating to the highly favored state of slummmberrrr.

Original Word / Letter Removed / Final Word

Now rearrange the four removed letters to form a controversial food word:
___ ___ ___ ___
1st 2nd 3rd 4th

Next, determine the cache coordinates by using the numerical equivalent of each letter:
___ = ♠ = number corresponding to the first letter minus 14
___ = ♥ = number corresponding to the second letter plus 4
___ = ♣ = number corresponding to the third letter plus 0
___ = &#9830 = number corresponding to the fourth letter minus 5

Cache Coordinates:
N 34 0♠.3♥6
W 119 11.♣5&#9830

Take a little time to enjoy the fresh air and ocean views once you find the cache.
