Geocache Description:

THE POSTED COORDINATES ARE WRONG!
YOU MUST SOLVE THE PUZZLE BELOW
TO LEARN THE CORRECT LOCATION OF THE CACHE.

Can't see the forest for the trees???



Solve the puzzle below to find the coordinates of this cache.
N 35° 9.XXX W 080° 43.YYY
XXX = Answer to Puzzle, YYY = Answer to Puzzle + 33


A = 11, B = 10, C = 16, D = 21, E = 69, F = 36, G = 14,
H = 2, I = 45, J = 7, K = 9, L = 8, M = 6,
N = 72, O = 117, P = 5, Q = 123, R = 132, S = 24,
T = 50, U = 1, V = 90, W = 48, X = 4, Y = 67, Z = 13


The container is a bison tube located in plain sight containing only a log. The 3 star difficulty is a combo of the puzzle and a micro in the woods - neither of which should be TOO hard.

Coordinates were averaged but still might be slightly off. Cache should not be hard to find if you are within the general area.

Need a Hint?


Congrats to NASCAR3nut for FTF and First to Solve!
