Geocache Description:


128 MB of Uselessness!
The cache is not located
at the posted coordinates!

Wow! There was once a time when 10 MB was considered huge! But not today! With 128 GB (and larger) flash drives on the market, 128 MB seems piddly! A 128 MB flash drive can hold about 32 songs and about 70 photos but that's about it!

So wouldn't you want to have one? And for free?

The cache contains around 50 128 MB flash drives (from a non-defunct company I use to work for). So when you find the cache, feel free to take one (and only one) of the flash drives you find there! And use at your own risk, of course!

So, here's how you find the cache...

Simply do the really easy calculations found below and replace the [aaa] and [bbb] seconds as appropriate!

N 42° 02.[aaa] W 088° 01.[bbb]

  1. Replace the seconds of the north coordinates [aaa] with the size of the flash drive multiplied by three thousand, nine hundred and twenty eight and then convert that number to gigabytes.
  2. Replace the west coordinates [bbb] with the size of the flash drive plus ten.


You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
