Pie are round, Cornbread are square! Mystery Cache

This cache has been archived.

KA&JWest: I'm not real happy with the final location. There is a dog behind the fence that really takes offense to anyone searching nearby.

I like the theme and the math, so I will probably rebuild this with a totally different final.

Geocache Description:

Pies may be round but this cache is based on square cornbread!

The funny thing is, most authentic cornbread recipes are cooked in a cast-iron skillet, so cornbread are round too! But not for this cache!

Consider, if you will, a circle centered on the coordinates above (Don't go there unless you have a deceased relative you would like to visit). For reasons known only to the demented, the area of this circle is measured in square cornbread (which is not cornbread2.. Or maybe it is. Who knows?).

The area of this circle is 31,658,390 square cornbread. The cornbread stash is located at a true bearing of 60.06 degrees from the center of the circle, on the circle.

"Ah-Ha!," you say. "This is a piece of cake!"

"Uh.. How big are these cornbread?"

I'm glad you asked! These square cornbread have a lesser radius of 5.25 inches, and a greater radius of 7.425 inches.
