1.5: Piecing It Together
One of the first steps in puzzle solving is gathering information. Check every detail and make note of everything that is provided. It is only after seeing all that is before you that you may start to piece things together. Sometimes it's obvious, other times the data is more subtle.

So now you see how this works. You must complete Puzzle Gauntlet 1.0: Certitudity before starting on this puzzle. Anyone can get this far, but now you'll have to put forth at least a little effort. Really, most people should be able to make it at least past this one too. Some puzzles just take a little patience, that's all. Go ahead and give this one a try. And if you make the hike for the first geocache in the series, it only makes sense to find at least another one or two on the trail.
