Geocache Description:


This cache is not at at the posted coordinates. But it's close. In fact, you might think about parking at the coordinates if you drive to the cache. I'd give this cache a lower difficulty rating, but there is a heavy muggle presence. Very heavy.

Are you a cacher of average intelligence (or perhaps lower) who gets frustrated by some puzzle caches? We've all been there. Perhaps you've been expected to calculate coordinates after:

- Being shown 15 pictures of the same cactus,
- Being told to calculate the combined thrust of all jet aircraft in the Chilean air force,
- Reading the 64th paragraph of Ronald Reagan's 1984 reelection acceptance speech,
- Shown a menu from Reese Witherspoon's favorite restaurant,
- Calculate the number of stars in the sky at the listed coordinates at 2:14am on October 23, 2038, or
- Determine the probability of getting a perfect hand in cribbage.

If you've experienced such frustration, then this is the puzzle cache for you. And you can be smug in knowing you're an expert in all of the listed fields.

The cache is at N AB° CD.EFG W HIJ° KL.MNO.
