Geocache Description:


The final installment of the Harry Potter movies arrives on July 15, 2011.
If you’re familiar with the series, you probably know what happens in the end…but do you know how?

During his travels as the “boy wizard”, Harry came into possession of something called the Marauder’s Map, which was a very unique folded piece of parchment paper. Harry used it often during his adventures leading up to the final confrontation with Voldemort. And just before that happened, he discovered something hidden in magic code on that map that revealed the secret how to defeat Voldemort – by realizing where the “special place” was that he needed to visit. While not revealing the destination where Harry went, solve the puzzle below and you will know where to go to find this cache!!

Got magic? You can check your solution here:

Disclaimer (really!):
The events listed above are only partially true, as Harry never really saw any magic code on the Marauder’s Map.
But, for us mere “muggles” (non-magic folk), the code is perfect for non-muggling geocachers!!

Special thanks to 3AMT for permission to use the fantastic idea behind his cache GC1RMG4.
Good Luck, and Happy Caching!!
First to Find receives a set of Harry Potter Gringott's Bank coins!!

Congratulations to Cosmic*Cachers for FTF
