Geocache Description:

*** UPDATE: On the morning of April 17, 2009, this cache received a much needed upgrade in size.

Many thanks to JohnLeo for use of the 50 cal ammo can. I hope you see it again one day!

Of course, some goodies had to be placed inside the cache to entice future finds. They include: an unactivated travel bug tag, one 1 euro coin, an old Garden State Parkway token, several Sudoku puzzles, two old baseballs, and three unopened packs of Fleer baseball cards from 1988. Happy caching! ***

The above coordinates are for a Leatherstocking Trail sign. You cannot park at the sign. Closest, legal parking is on Highview Street. You will need to solve the “Greater Than Sudoku” puzzle to come up with the cache’s actual coordinates.

Here’s a brief explanation on how to play Greater Than Sudoku. The rules for regular Sudoku still apply: each row, column, and three-by-three block must contain the numbers 1 to 9 without repetition. In addition, the value of each individual cell must obey the relationship between the cells specified with “greater than” or “less than” symbols. For example, 7 > 1 is correct, while 7 < 6 would not be right. Got it? See example picture.

Cache coordinates are: N 40° 57.ABC W 073° 44.DEF Substitute the letters with the numbers in the coordinating squares in the Sudoku puzzle.
