How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates

(Optional) Please include in your log the time you found the cache (for scoring).

At a recent geocaching event I happened to run into a former math professor of mine. He has really gotten into caching, and told me me how he decided to test his students by embedding a cache location in their homework.

I thought it sounded like fun and asked him to send a copy of it along to me. Looking at it, though, I can't make heads or tails of it. It makes me think I'm going to have to go back and repeat the class.

Note about the Triangle Puzzle Series: To be considered for the solver points, you must verify your answer with certitude (anonymous certifications will get you no points). All point scoring is arbitrary and subject to change. One challenge puzzle will be posted per month around the 5th and hint added on the 20th of the month. Please do not share the hints with others. Finders who did not certify their solution will get no points as well. Please note in your find log your position in the cache log and the TIME of your log. Logs without time will have scoring based on log submission time instead. Best of all, have fun.


You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
