Geocache Description:

The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. This is a mystery cache that you must solve to find the actual coordinates of the physical cache location.

Lets keep the Geoart alive! If you feel you have made an honest attempt but were unable to make the find it is OK (and encouraged) to replace the cache. All I ask is that you note it in your log so I can check it out the next time I am in the area.

To find the actual cache location, you must solve the puzzle below for the missing digit(s). All the information you need for the solution is contained on this page.  Most caches will be easy park and grabs, while others may involve short hikes over uneven terrain.  Placed with permission.
