Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

To begin, the posted coordinates will take you to a parking area of a little town park in Gowanda. The final cache you will be looking for is a small match case that has a pencil and log sheet in it. To get the coordinates of the final cache you will need to solve this puzzle. The final cache location is located inside the Park.
Step 1. First locate the park name on a sign posted at the entrance.

Step 2. Now with the letter A=1, B=2, C=3 and so on fill the blanks below with the corresponding letters from the park name.

__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __

Step 3. To find the change to the Longitude of the posted coordinates subtract the number value of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th letters of the Park name from the fractional value of the Longitude.

Step 4. To find the change to the posted Latitude multiply the number values of the 4th and 5th letters of the Park name.

Step 5. Add the number value of the 1st and 9th letters to the result of Step 4.

Step 6. Subtract the Result of Step 5 from the posted coordinate of the Latitude.

You now have the coordinates of the cache. Please return cache where you found it and beware of peeking eyes, as this park is quite busy at times.
