Geocache Description:

The given coordinates are for the Hardscrabble Wilderness parking area. Solve the puzzle below and find the cache within.

Northbert Vertical and Westley Hortenz were playing a game of scrabble one afternoon and as the game progressed they couldn't take their minds off their favorite hobby.

Northbert went first playing the 2 letter word ON. Westley then made a bingo by playing all 7 of his letters, time for a little CACHING. I hope it's not a MICRO, but Northbert played the word. No, but it's definitely OFFSET from the initial coordinates, replied Westley. Good, we can both have room for our LOGS. Westley was reminded of some SQUISHY swag he needed to bring, and Northbert was becoming JITTERY while waiting for his partner to collect his gear. A journey of a thousand LI starts with a single step as they head off into the PINES to search for an ammo box.

The final location is in the Hardscrabble Wilderness which borders a nearby scout camp to the east. If you try bushwacking from the south or east you'll run into the bottom corner of their property. Avoid trespassing by staying on the red trail till you reach the reference waypoint.
