Geocache Description:

***CACHE IS NOT AT THE LISTED COORDINATES***

This is my forth hide and my first puzzler. I was presented this sequence a number of years ago and I have to admit I gave up before solving it. Once I was told the answer I kicked myself and have remembered it ever since. Hope you enjoy it.

Solve the sequence to find the coordinates and the cache.

The next sequence contains 10 digits. Each digit is represented by these corresponding letters:

A B C D E F G H I J

Solve the sequence, then use the formulas below to get the latitude and longitude for the hide location.

North (A+B+G) (A+C+F) deg (C+D+E) (G+J) dot (F*J) (E+F+G) (E+J)

West (A-A) ((D*(E+G)) (A+A) deg (F+G+H) (G*J) dot (F+G+H+I) (A+B+H) (G*J)

I'll see how tricky this one is before posting any hints. You can check your answers at GeoCheck.org. Here's the link and the tally.



Good Luck!
