Geocache Description:

This is a mystery of garments that have been lost somewhere in the capital region.

To find the cache, you should familiarize yourself with this story of a student of technology called Teemu.

Waking up around 4 pm in Otaniemi after some late night partying, Teemu notices that he has lost nearly everything he had with him the previous night. His memory of the events that took place is pretty faint, but he is sure that he still had his leather pants and his outdoor hat on, while travelling on a bus from Otaniemi to downtown Helsinki.

Having been on a student party, Teemu naturally had his student cap with him. He still has the cap but it is missing its most crucial part, the bobble. "It must be those darn humanists from East Helsinki", Teemu swears, knowing that they are known from stealing other people's bobbles as trophies of their hunt.

Hint #1 Hint #2 Hint #3

Your job is to help Teemu to figure out where his garments have gone.

When you have found all of the missing garments, collect the following information:

  • A = Minutes in longitude of Hint #1 (rounded down to the nearest minute).
  • B = Minutes in longitude of Hint #2 (rounded down to the nearest minute).
  • C = Minutes in latitude of Hint #3 (rounded down to the nearest minute).

The final cache is hidden in:
N 60° 11.(C*(A+B)/2.813) '
E 24° 49.(((A-1.4)*B*C)/(B-C)) '
