Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.

Park on Sterling Road.
As an English teacher and librarian, I wanted to combine these interests with my other
interest---geocaching. I have accomplished this in a series of caches of which this is the first. The first set of coordinates will give you the last name of a famous author in American Literature. THE CACHE IS NOT THERE !!!
Please don't disturb the residents while looking for the cache !
The second set is as follows: 40 59 xxx
73 42 yyy
This is where the cache is. It is a metal tin about 3 1/2" X 1 1/2".
PLEASE NOTE: IF THERE ARE TWO AUTHORS WITH THE SAME LAST NAME, ALWAYS CHOOSE THE EARLIER ONE !
To find "x", convert the letters of the author's last name into numbers, using simple substitution. (A -1, B - 2, etc.) Thus, Poe would be 16-15-5.
Add them together (for Poe it would be 36), and subtract 1. Place a zero in front of your answer,
To find "y", simply add 524 to "x".
