Geocache Description:

This cache starts at the same place that my archived cache "Does a Bear Sit in the Woods?" started... I love this spot!

A 2-stage multi that will require just a little bit of math.

A = The distance to John Tigard House
B = The distance to Samarinda
C = B - A - 8000
D = The decimal portion of the posted Longitude

WWW = C + D

E = The distance to the Eiffel Tower
F = E / 3
G = F - 207
H = The minutes (with the decimal places) portion of the posted Latitude.

NN.NNN = H + G

Final coords are N45 NN.NNN W122 47.WWW

Have fun.
