How Geocaching Works

Geocache Description:

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the coordinates above. I'm sure they would take you to a very nice location where you could enjoy God's creation. However, if you want to find this cache, I don't recommend going there; I recommend solving the puzzle instead.

I have been trying to break some of you of the habit of doing these puzzles by hand. This time, I'm just trying to break you.

ASCII is a very widely used character-encoding scheme. Unfortunately, it is a somewhat inefficient scheme in regard to storage requirements, and it is frequently encoded to reduce its size. Also unfortunately ... it must be decoded to be useful again. Or to be read to obtain coordinates.


Please note that the above set of characters should be a single line of characters without carriage returns. I have broken it into 2 lines simply to keep the width of the page down.

The cache is located adjacent to private property. The owner is aware of the cache; however, please DO NOT go inside his fence line.

To check the coordinates, please do not go here.
