Geocache Description:


The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. Solve the puzzle below to find the cache location.

I was out for a hike the other day and placed a new geocache just above the trail for you to find.  I drew up a clever puzzle for you to decipher the coordinates.  I used a 5x5 square grid with each cell having a dot or dash and then the plan was for you to figure out that the coordinates were encoded using Morse code.  Like this:

The cache is at N37° ab.cde' W122° vw.xyz'

The only problem was that a pteranodon swooped down and grabbed the answer page from me before I could get home to type it up, and now I've forgotten where I actually left the cache!  Fortunately, I know you're a very intelligent puzzler and I'm sure you can find it anyway.  There's a physical puzzle in the cache as a prize for the FTF.

Thanks to J5 Crew for play testing.

As with any of my puzzles, I'm happy to provide nudges if you need them and let me know what you've tried so far.


You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
