Geocache Description:

The title is a little play with words, but the purpose of this cache is that if you're good with clues, then the locations should be "Dead Give Aways". I listed it as a multi-cache because it is, but it actually has a little of everything: Micros, mysteries, a puzzle, and a traditional ending.

The listed coordinates bring you to the entrance of a cemetery located in Collins Center. Park anywhere inside and begin your search there. To begin, you must know the name of the young wizard that found the Sorcerer's Stone. Now imagine that instead of a wizard, he was a witch. What might her name be?? Find her headstone. On it are 3 dates. Use those dates along with the following clues to locate the first Micro cache:

1. Take the latitude of the cemetery gate and view it as N42.29.ABC. Take the date of death on the headstone and find the answer of: the second digit minus the third digit of the date of death. Subtract this answer from the value of A. Now, add together the last digit from all three dates. Multiply this by 2. This is your answer. The last two digits of the latitude are found by using the equation: BC(use them as a single two digit number, I do NOT want you to multiply them)plus the answer from above.
2. To get the longitude, use the gate longitude and view it as W078.51.DEF. Take the last digit of the date the currently living person was born and subtract 1 from it. Add this answer to the values of both D & E , and subract the answer from the value of F.

The micro will contain clues for the next micro. That micro will contain clues for a mystery. The mystery will lead you to another mystery and the final. If you want or need additional clues, I listed a few more below.

Good Luck and have fun. Remember the most rewarding caches are the ones you work hardest for. I also made this cache family oriented with easy terrain that is good for all ages.
