spinowner: This was a spur-of-the-moment decision but I think it's time to free the space up for someone else to place another cache or two.

Geocache Description:

THE LISTED COORDINATES ARE FOR ON-STREET PARKING. THE CACHE ITSELF IS NOT AT THIS LOCATION.

"Good morning, class!"
"good morning, mr. spinowner."
"Come now, boys and girls! We can do better than that! Good morning, class!"
"GOOD MORNING, MR. SPINOWNER!!"
"Much better! Today we are going to take a U.S. Geography quiz. Let's get our minds and pencils sharpened and get to work."
____________________________________________________________________________

1. What is the northernmost state in the U.S.?
2. What is the southernmost state in the U.S.?
3. What is the easternmost state in the U.S.?
4. What is the westernmost state in the U.S.?

Determine the numerical equivalent of each answer using A=1,B=2,C=3,...,Z=26. (For example, the numerical equivalent of "cache" is 3+1+3+8+5=20.) The sum of these four numbers is the quantity Q.

The cache is located at
N45 00.ABC
W93 31.DEF

ABC = (59 x Q) - 10116
DEF = (15 x Q) - 2553

It is Mr. spinowner's policy not to divulge test answers. However, he encourages those students who would like a tutor to assist them with their studies to contact those who have previously passed the test.
