Geocache Description:

*** The coordinates above are not for the cache, but are within a couple of miles. Solve the puzzle below to find the cache.***

8/27/08: Puzzle updated, be sure to check your numbers!

Another in a series of common hides, with a twist.

Part of the fun of caching is meeting all the other great cachers out there. This eventually leads to a collection of "lifelines" you can call when you get stuck at a troublesome cache (more often than not, for me, a 1/1). Trouble is, I never seem to have the right number with me when I need it...

So I decided to get all the little scraps of paper organized and put into my black book.
After I finished, I saw I still had several numbers left over that I just could not figure out. (I think I was making some notes on one of my new caches, but coded them so Nazgul wouldn't see what I was writing down.) Maybe you can figure it out...

687-9376 the way, please don't try calling any of them!

The cache site can be busy but I doubt anyone will pay attention to you. You can also try visiting after hours. Please do not disturb any plants, or dismantled any infrastructure.
The cache is a log only, bring a pen. Non-puzzlers: give it a try, it does not require advanced calculus or programming skill. You probably have all you need to solve it within easy reach. Check sum is 52.
