Geocache Description:


The cache is not hidden at the posted coordinates. You'll need to solve the puzzle below to determine the decimal minutes.

Back when I was scouting locations for my Pinecone Cache, I stepped on a wasps nest. It was the third time I had gotten stung since I started geocaching and the second time that week. Thankfully I only got stung once as the other wasps were busy trying to get my coat. After a theraputic moment disposing of the attacking creatures I had the delicate GPS retrieval operation as I had hooked it on a tree, averaging coordinates, about 6' from the nest. Turn out it was all for naught as that area is too close to an existing cache.

To solve the puzzle, you must enter the digits 0 to 9 in each row (no duplicates). Cell have wasps between them if, and only if, the cell are off by one. The head end is always 1 greater than the stinger end. There is only 1 solution to the whole grid. Remember, if there is no wasp between cells then it cannot be off by one. Cache is located at N47 36.ABC, W122 09.DEF.
