Geocache Description:

First in the POP (Plain Ol' Puzzle) series.
Posted coordinates are bogus.
Solve the puzzle to find the real coordinates.
Bring your own pen.

408 592 176 415 862 309 510 793 846
209 648 157 916 024 873 510 389 247
805 164 392 408 523 769 714 908 635
408 793 615 916 524 738 650 432 978
916 750 348 805 143 692 916 325 807


The final coordinates are in a park that is shared by a school and the public. So I don't recommend going for the cache between 7am & 4pm on school days.

P.S. DON'T call what might appear to be phone numbers!


Update 5/12/04: Upped difficulty to 3 stars based on feedback.
Update 7/26/04: Had to move the cache and implement an offset due to the original cache being muggled. The puzzle remains the same. Added a half star due to the extra offset exercise.
Update 3/4/06: Cache is once again at solution coordinates and offset is no longer required. Rating stays the same because now the cache is a blinker (hidden in plain sight at least.)
