Geocache Description:

Cache is not at the posted coordinates.


Deputy Tallstone was apprehensive of this Friday the 13th and wondered what kind of bad surprise awaited him. He was sipping a cup of coffee with his assistant in the break room when he noticed his office mailbox wasn't empty. Intrigued, he came closer and saw what appeared to be a letter bearing no stamp or return address. He grabbed his handkerchief and carefully retrieved the envelope. On it was written this simple address:

POLICE HEADQUARTERS
TIM TALLSTONE

Tallstone pulled out his pocket knife, cautiously cut the envelope open and extracted a single page.

"What the heck does this mean?" he shouted. He turned to his assistant: "Robert, I want you to send this to the lab immediately, I want to know who is behind this and how this thing got here. Tell them to run all their tests on it: fingerprints, X-ray, UV light, DNA analysis, you name it. And fax a copy of this gibberish to the NSA, see what they come up with. I want the results by the end of the day".

A few hours later, the telephone rang on Tallstone's desk. "Sir, this is Robert. The results are in. There's nothing."
- "What do you mean nothing?"
- "Everything is clean, they couldn't find any clue to identify the author, nothing."
- "Like there would be any doubt in my mind about who did this..." mumbled Tallstone. "Anything from the NSA?"
- "Well... I got a call from them too. First of all, the director was not amused by the fact that we didn't follow the protocol. He even used a four-letter word, something like "RTFM" and said we should have sent the page in the original envelope instead of faxing it. Then he asked if this was some sort of a bad joke becaus...". He was interrupted by loud knocks on the line. "Sir, is everything okay?"
There was no response. Tallstone was banging the handset against his head in desperation.
