Geocache Description:


Cache isn't at the listed coordinates - instead solve the puzzle below.


I grew up being forced to listen to Genesis. My older sister used to put her prized LPs on the record player turn up the power and sing along. This was all while I was trying to sleep next door with  paper thin walls. The "noise" continued until my Dad shouted enough at her. In time, I learned to love their music especially the early formative years. Here's a few of my favourite albums:
