Geocache Description:

Cache is Not at the Posted Coordinates!

I got the container for this cache from EricTheScienceKid, as an FTF prize on GC1NV54.

I finally found a nice place to use the container last night, while Wundercachergirl was at swimming practice. Today I decided to put together a relatively simple puzzle to go along with the relatively difficult hide. It should be a 2 1/2 / 2 overall. BYOP and replace the container as you found it.

I would recommend that you park in the lot at McKnight Park and walk the trail to the cache, but you do whatever you like.

The puzzle is to name the following sciences or studies:

A - Knowledge or learning concerning divining rods.
B - Study of relation between brain and behaviour.
C - Study of cockroaches (or grasshoppers or crickets).
D - Study of funguses.
E - Study of proper names.
F - Study of animals for whose existence there is no conclusive proof.

Then convert your answer to numbers and enter into the coordinates as follows:

N 44 49.ABC
W 093 36.DE(F-1)

The original beacon is gone. I have placed a temp container for now. Check the puzzle as designed and then add .011 to the North and .008 to the West.
