w00fel: Visited the final today to move the cache away from the PO, but after 15 minutes of searching I couldn't find it. I didn't bring a replacement with me, and the PO is so thick that I decided it's time to let this one go.

Anyways, the puzzle that inspired this one has been archived, so archiving this one as well seemed to be very 'in theme'.

Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the listed location. Solve the puzzle to obtain the actual coordinates.

I came up with the idea for this puzzle as a result of one of the (many) incorrect solutions I obtained to kanchans slightly underrated puzzle Where's Your Hometown?.

I've spent hours staring at the other puzzle so far, with no solution yet*. The solution to this one only requires about a minute or so.

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.

Congratulations to kablooey & kanchan for Co-FTF.

* Update 10/14/12 - I finally solved it!
