Brief: Go to given location, collect information, calculate final co-ordinates. Go to final location. Find a one litre green painted sitema container.
The 'end of the road' is the one thing that we can be guaranteed will come to us all (that and taxes, apparently!), but we just don't know where or when. In the days of our pioneering ancestors, the act of living was often a lot riskier than it is for us today, and death was a closer companion. Old cemeteries such as this one often have many many stories to tell - of love and sadness, heroism and hope, despair and peace, and a good few mysteries as well.
The given co-ords take you to a gravestone (though stone is not quite the right word) that set Annie to wondering about one of the mysteries.
Next to it is the information that will help you with your co-ordinate calculations.
