Geocache Description:

Geocaching was originally similar to the 160-year-old game letterboxing, which uses clues and references to landmarks embedded in stories.

Geocaching was conceived shortly after the removal of Selective Availability from the Global Positioning System on May 2, 2000, because the improved accuracy of the system allowed for a small container to be specifically placed and located. The first documented placement of a GPS-located cache took place on May 3, 2000, by Dave Ulmer. The location was posted on the Usenet newsgroup sci.geo.satellite-nav as N 45°17.460 W 122°24.800. According to Dave Ulmer's message, this cache was a black plastic bucket that was partially buried and contained software, videos, books, food, money, and a slingshot. A geocache "Original Stash Tribute Plaque" and plaque called the "Original Stash Tribute Plaque" now sit at the site.

Your task is to find the first ever published caches in Latvia of each type (except Lab caches). Count all the ordinal numbers together and multiply this sum by the count of caches and you will get the number ABCDEFGHI.

You will find the cache in N 56 5A.[EIG+CFB+A+H] E 023 3[I+3].[ABC+FDH+BAG]
