Geocache Description:


This is a puzzle cache that requires knowledge of the movie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and the park where the cache is located. The movie clues can be found by either watching the movie, using the Force, or searching the internet. Some of the park clues can only be answered by actually going to the park.

The cache is located in Cherbourg Park. This is a nice little park that has a lot to offer. My family and I have been coming here for years and I thought it would be a great location for my very first hide.

To get the coordinates to the cache, you must first solve these clues.

N42° AB.CDE W087° FG.HIJ

A = (The number of engines on the Tantive IV) MINUS (the number of tennis courts) MINUS 8

B = (The number of times "The Imperial March" is played) DIVIDED BY (The number of basketball hoops)

C = (Number of times Obi-Wan says the phrase "May the Force be with you.") TIMES (the number of benches in the park)

D = (The number of letters in the words that appear directly under the blue arch) MINUS (the first digit of Princess Leia's cell number on the Death Star)

E = (The position in the alphabet of the letter used to designate Luke's fighter) MINUS (the number of sand volleyball courts) MINUS 14

F = (The sum of the first two digits in the number of the room where Chewbacca discovers an incredible smell) DIVIDED BY (the number of soccer fields)

G = (The number of tire swings) PLUS (the number of words in the first sentence of the opening crawl)

H = (2 TIMES The number of pillars that hold up the shelter) MINUS (the number of parsecs in which Han Solo claims he made the Kessel Run rounded up) PLUS (the number of credits paid to Han Solo in advance by Luke and Obi Wan DIVIDED BY 1000)

I = (The year Star Wars was originally released) MINUS (the number of flat turnable dark and light tiles under the blue arch) MINUS 1800

J = (The number of gates in the fence around the tennis courts) DIVIDED BY (the number of lightsaber duels)

Once you have these coordinates, you will need to make a projection from these coordinates of 53 feet at 323°. There you will find the cache.

Note: All movie related questions pertain to Episode IV only.

Watch out for muggles. Bring a pencil. Please replace the cache as you found it.

Be careful and good luck!
