Geocache Description:

A puzzle about an amazing person, easy once you know who it is!

The cache is not at the above coordinates. Do not attempt to go there – you would be killed.


The cache is in honour of a hero of mine, one of the most significant figures in history.


Our hero’s full name was A B C, count the letters.

He was born in the year 1DEF.

His most famous book when originally published had five words in its title G H I J K, count the letters.

(Arguably it had 21 words in its title, GHIJK were the first five and the original short title, which was later changed to HIJK.)

The date it was published was LM/NO/1PQR

The date our hero died was ST/UV/1WXY


The cache location is N52 3a.bcd W001 0e.fgh
where:

a = C+V-G
b = B+H-R
c = E+P-Q
d = O+X-D
e = I+W-A
f = F+N-M
g = L+T-J
h = K+S-Y


The cache is hidden on a street that is almost certainly not named after our hero. If anyone knows after whom it is named please email me.

The cache is a magnetic nano in an absurdly busy spot; great stealth please!
There is an explicit hint to facilitate finding the cache without looking too conspicuous.





Congratulations hathi on FTF!
and to hal-an-tow on STF
