Geocache Description:

Please note: The clue to this cache has slightly changed due to the removal of the Entomology sign from the Entomology builing. The word entomology is the ten letter clue word.
The sign has gone but in my mind this will always be the Entomology building.


Big bugs, little bugs, thin bugs, fat.

Creepy, crawling, creepy, crawling. Just like that!

Black bugs, brown bugs, green bugs, too.

Leaping, jumping, leaping, jumping right past you!

A little more bug poetry? (visit link) (visit link) (visit link)

A simple little offset cache in an interesting part of Canberra. There are a few popular destinations around here.

To find this cache go to the location and look at the big white building. It was once the entomology building. Use this ten letter word as the clue piece.

Do the usual deal and substitute the letters for the numbers. A=1 B=2 Z=27 You know how it goes.

Then do the bunch of sums

The south co-ord. 35 16.SSS
Take the 2nd letter and double this number. Times this number by the 8th number. Add this 3 digit number to the original south points of minutes co-ord.

The east co-ord. 149 05.EEE
Minus the 3rd letter from 869. The final east point is 149 05.EEE.

#### Note. if your calculations put you in the ANU ground you have got the sums wrong. You need to be on black mountain.

I have themed the contents of this cache. They are all plastic bugs, if possible please continue the theme.
And last but not least enjoy the view at the end. You guessed it, its on a hill.
