Geocache Description:


This puzzle series was inspired by ePeterso2’s series “Puzzle Solving 101”. Even though the traditional method of learning is the best, there is always something to be said about taking shortcuts. This series should be a sort of “Cliff Notes” for those that would like to get some of the pesky “?”s on their solved list. Follow along and make sure you keep the final coordinates for each one of these puzzles because they will help you to solve the final puzzle.

Search engines are your best friends when trying to solve a puzzle. They can help you find anything. We looked up our top 10 searched for phrases over the past year, and they go as follows:

1. Numbers in different languages
2. Types of ciphers
3. Reverse image search
4. “Different names of the geocaches”
5. “Hints”
6. Online barcode reader
7. Sudoku solver
8. “Different flags and country names”
9. HTML code
10. How to read EXIF data

Here are a few search engines and information sources:

1. Google
2. Bing
3. Wikipedia
4. Gazopa
5. Tineye
