Geocache Description:


The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates, but these coords are where Robin Hood might park. Small-to-medium lock and lock. NO FENCES NEED BE CLIMBED.

For each given word or phrase, remove one letter, then rearrange the remaining letters to form the title of a Hercule Poirot novel by Agatha Christie. The green highlighted squares contain punctuation. Fill only white or yellow squares.


The yellow squares, taken in order top to bottom, spell out the name of a character in several Poirot stories. Copy that name into the yellow squares in grid #2.

The pink squares in each grid are to keep track of the unused letter from each word or phrase. Keep these in order also, and copy them into grid #2.


Use the alphanumeric table to convert each letter to a number. Then add to fill the blue boxes. The first box in each row is already filled in to get you started. Finally add all the blue numbers together to get "x."

The cache is found at N 41 22.abc W 96 03.def.
abc=(2x+31)
def=(x+40)

First-to-find prize: DVD-R with 2 Poirot films in .avi format, and 7 Poirot e-books in epub, pdf and Kindle formats.
