Geocache Description:

Cache is NOT at posted coordinates, but you can park there.

This small cache is placed in Blue Mountain Reservation in honor of the Peekskill High School team mascots, the Red Devils. The cache is devilishly and diabolically hidden, not to mention symbolically.
Now for the math:
cache is at N 41 16.ABC W 073 54.DEF
A^2 (A-squared) = sum(A through F)
DEF is a palindrome, as is ACE
The sum of the squares of the first (E+1) prime numbers = DCB
FEA = sum of integers from 1 through (B times D)
(A+D)=(B+E)
If you turned ABC upside-down you would get GHI; DEF upside-down is JKL. The distance from GZ to N 41 16.GHI W 073 54.JKL is (CDF + 102) meters, at a bearing of (ECB - 343) degrees.
Musical Riddle #1 - What was Nelson's TV theme song?
TV riddle - Over the years, where might you see both Buster Keaton and Robert Redford?

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.

Congrats to Byrdcache for FTF and to Ripemous for FTS.
