This cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. You will have to solve the puzzleS to find the final location. The 5 difficulty is NOT because the puzzleS are hard. There are just a few twist and turns in your travels (solving). Shouldn't be too hard, but if you need any help, just let me know. Park in the parking lot. Do NOT walk through private property!
Ever dream of traveling around the world? Well today you can.
And you won't need an umbrella or have to stop and build a snowman.
So it won't be the trip you have always dreamed of, but hopefully it will be fun and you will get to see LOTS of interesting places.

NOTE: To help you out along your journey -
1. Write the letters down in order of your stops. They will spell out a phrase. This should help you, if you can't make out the letter. And you will need them to get the coords in the 2nd puzzle.
2. Also write down the name of the country/state the stop is located in as you travel along.
3. # 14 IS a number (not letter). It is the last number of your final stop (GZ).
