Geocache Description:

Do not use the above coords. as you must calculate the real ones by answering the questions below. You will also need a 3 digit code to unlock the treasure box.

Final coords. are: N35 AB.CDE, W106 FG.HIJ whereas: A = The third digit of the year the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe was built. B = The New Mexico state mammal is : 1. Black Bear, 2. Mountain Lion, 3. Coatimundi. C = The New Mexico state flower is: 1. Yucca, 2. Sego Lily, 3. Cholla. D = There are 19 Pueblo groups who speak ____ distinct languages.

The following information will supply you with clues for the 3 digit code needed to unlock the treasure box when you find it. Although the Egyptians knew all about pies, and the scribe Ahmas wrote about them in 1650 BC, it was Archimedes of Syracuse who published the first book containing pie information around 200 BC. As we remember from our math class, it has to do with the mathematical relationship between the diameter of pies and the circumference of one's tummy. (It has been a long time since math class!) So, was Archimedes' book the first ever diet book published? :-) If you need more hints, after studying recipe books, diet books, and at least 3 math books, feel free to e-mail us via our profile page. Stop by and say hello. The cache owner lives just west of the cache. If I spot you, I will come out to greet you.
