Geocache Description:

Where would you rather be?... Anywhere... Anywhere but here

If you go to the listed coordinates, you will find a park in Livermore, but you won't find this cache because it's not there. This is an Urban cache.

Note: The original style tracking tag as shown below is required to solve the puzzle.



[ BRIEFING ]


As you may know, sensitive materials occasionally fall into the hands of SF2062. These items have a tracking tag attached to them. Intelligence indicates that SF2062 is using the encoded coordinates below as a cache location for captured artifacts until they can be transferred to Syrinx for investigation. Your objective is to locate this dead-drop and extract an item, switching it with a Bug if possible.


[ INSTRUCTIONS ]


Reconnaissance has located the cache at the encrypted coordinates:

3U441 V7W60 2XY1Z

Contents at time of initial contact:
  • Cache identification paper.
  • Log book.
  • Ball point pen.
  • First To Find cache card with gold star pin.
  • FTF! Bug.
Note: A list of items (if any) known to be in the possession of SF2062 will be maintained to the right of this page.

Do not place anything without a tracking tag.
The information we collect by tracking the movement of these items within the SF2062 organization is crucial. Any items that you place or retrieve must be entered into the tracking system located here (type tracking code in box and click Track button).

Do not include any description of the cache location or container in your log.
Your computer log is not a secure form of communication. Any logs that threaten the security of this resource will be deleted.


[ KEY ]


U = M+(B*B)-(P*D/L)
V = (D*B*L/P)-D
W = B-(P*(B+B)/L)+D
X = (S*B/((L-B)*P))-B
Y = (B*B)+(B*P/L)
Z = (P*(L-B)/L)+B

Where:
M = Le nombre de mois dans une année.
D = Le nombre de jours dans une semaine.
S = Le nombre de secondes dans une minute.
P = Le nombre de points sur le Étoile Rouge.
B = Le nombre de B sur les deux côtés de le étiquette de suivi.
L = Le nombre de L sur les deux côtés de le étiquette de suivi.

Double check your calculations and solve the cipher.
