Geocache Description:

Swansea's edition to a series of caches which can be found in different parts of New England. 

In order to locate this cache, you must determine the "ground zero coordinates" for Swansea, Massachusetts. Important: you are not obtaining the ground zero coordinates for "02777" as they are different than those for Swansea. Do not overthink how to get the correct set of coordinates either; this puzzle is rated 1.5 for a reason.

Once you have obtained the ground zero coordinates for Swansea, apply the following offset to reveal the final location for the cache:

SUBTRACT .077 from NORTH and ADD .123 to WEST. 

If you have solved the puzzle correctly, you should find a small, round lock-n-lock a few feet off the trail up a small embankment behind a tree. There are a few prickers in the area as well as the possibility of poisonous plants, so please take caution. Please replace as found.
