Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the posted co-ordinates.

I was making a puzzle which started with a piece of text, used the Caesar shift (rot-N) on each letter, then converted the Ns to letters (1=A, 26=Z) to spell out the co-ordinates.

If my message was HELLO and my key text CACHE, then the cipher text would be UVQVP.

As I was doing it I realised the easiest way to set it would be with a grid of letters similar to one used for the Vigenere cipher.
