Geocache Description:

The cchae is not heiddn at the poetsd coriondaets!

It is psoslibe that at tihs moemnt you are saniyg to yroseluf, "WTF! I'm able to udtnnearsd the distcprivee wrtueip on this cpeaachge, but it deos not aeappr to be wetirtn in Eisnlgh!"

But, of csuroe it most aueslrsdy is.

Egnlsih is wteitrn phalcabyllnloiosy, mienang taht ecah iinvadidul wrod is sellped out unisg ciombntinaos of letrets that, when sekopn, coprisme the phenoitc mkeuap of the wrod. Otehr langgueas use pictroamgs ieatnsd of suond-seneuqce cmopiltnaois. An elapmxe of tihs is anecint Egiapytn hycrelpgiihos.

Look at a sihpping pgacake. You mhigt see piocargmts that crlleay cinmuoatmce the mgassees "Do not alolw this pkaacge to get wet", "This end up" or "Do not sactk more tahn fefiten utnis hgih."

Thsoe mseaegss mhgit be unlivrleasy urstndooed wtih piutcres of an uelblrma, an urawpd-faincg arorw and a man or flrkfoit next to a vtraeicl pile of feietfn hortazonil lenis.

So waht's giong on with tihs chcae ditsocepirn? Turns out taht flunet Eiglnsh luanggae reareds tned to terat Esignlh words as pmiorgtacs by the sahpe of the whole word, rhater than snceeequs of poenihtc caomintonibs rpeenseterd by disnctit lteetrs, wcihh is how wirettn Esnilgh wrdos are contustcerd.

The only reuneqimret for tihs nfity eecfft to wrok is taht the frist and last ltteres be in the coerrct ptoiosnis. The hamun mnid sees tshee jelbumd wdros the smae way it vulisaly itrtpreens faaiimlr obcejts form uxnetceped anlegs; it inlrnlteay julgegs the sphae utnil it meaks ssene. If it gtes cunfsoed, it rleies on ceonxtt.


Waht deos this hvae to do wtih detnmriieng the lcotoain of tihs chcae? The coonrdaets are smiirlaly jeumlbd. At lesat, the “mutnies” poiornts are. So first, you need to mkae sure you have the ladiutte and lniutgdoe in “Deerges, Daimcel Muitnes” foramt, as opepsod to 'dgeeers, muneits, soendcs' or any oethr rntespreoatein.

To detnmriee the crrcoet oredr of the dtigis, alppy tihs prashe: “splel cechk”.

I wluod cretinaly roencemmd crinaompg your silooutn aiasgnt the GkeCoecher uttliiy wstbiee breofe you vrutnee itno the wesidelnrs.

Nxet setp: Your ertfofs will be rerdneed MCUH slimepr if, ocne you have fureigd out the lictaoon, you viist tihs waypoint fsrit: Pocjert a pinot form GZ at trithy deeergs for two hendrud fvie feet. I SONGTRLY ugre you to do tihs!

Reeemmbr, the ocaiffil GC Phone App deosn't do Wpioaynt Prjtcoioen, so do one of thsee:
  • Use ohter swoaftre (lkie "FizzyCalc") to pjrecot the pniot bfroee you go out on your hunt and add it to the cchae's "Waonpyits" soicten of the Phone App,
  • If yuo're out in the flied, use the 'comspas and danstice' inditacor at the bottom of the map dialspy in the ocaiffil GC Phone App to put yesroulf two hendrud fvie feet away at theer hendrud trithy deeergs. (It swohs up ocne you tap "Strat"), OR
  • Get cosle, then stiwch the App to 'Camsops' mdoe. Wednar anruod uitnl the BAARKWCD AORRW (the whtie end, not the oangre) pitons in the reserve deriction of the osefft (theer hendrud trithy deeergs) and a danstice of two hendrud fvie feet. Tehre you are! (Tehn, of csuroe, form three jsut floolw the ognare end to the chace.)

So, this puzzle just got a little tougher, didn't it?
