How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

DO NOT GO TO THE ABOVE COORDINATES. THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF LAKE UNION. THIS IS AN OFFSET CACHE. SEE CACHE DESCRIPTION TO OBTAIN CORRECT COORDINATES.

This is a micro near the edge of Lake Union, located near Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, ZymoGenetics, and if Paul Allen's Vulcan gets it's way, many more biotech companies in the future.

In order to determine the correct coordinates, you'll need to decode the following:


Cache location: N 47 37.QRS, W 122 19.XYZ

Step 1: Obtain the three letter sequence for both QRS and XYZ.
QRS=CACGAAGAC
XYZ=GGGAAATGT

Step 2: Substitute the proper number for each letter.
A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, K=0



Look around. Are you being watched? Maybe you are and you'll never know!
The cache container is a magnetized painted Altoids-style tin. Please be very careful when retrieving it, or it may end up in the water.
