Geocache Description:


The cache isn't located at the posted coordinates. Well, they aren't that far but you'll want to solve the puzzle first.

Please be careful of the plants while searching for this cache.

Here's another puzzle inspired by cryptic crosswords. This time, the clues are all double definitions. Let me explain with an example. The answer to "Healthy Water Source (4)" is Well because both "Healthy" and "Water Source" are valid clues for that word. The clues include the number of letters in the answer.

A. British Isle Person (3)
B. First Damsel (6)
C. Togo Native Sheep (3)
D. Burrowing Animal Sauce (4)
E. Duck Color (4)
F. Tiny Time Unit (6)
G. Silent Flower (3)
H. Fruit Engagement (4)
I. Bird Plunged (4)
J. Fasten Claw (4)

After filling in the numbers 1 to 14 above you should be able to derive a 6 letter word. Use the first three letters of that word, convert to a three digit number using the conversion a=1, b=2, c=3, ... i=9, j=0, k=1, ... z=6 and add that number decimal minutes portion of the posted latitude. Do the same for the last 3 letters to the longitude to get the final coordinates.

Congratulations to TheScottFamilyFive on the FTF!
