What exactly is organic chemistry? In short, it is the chemistry of life. Organic chemistry is the study of carbon based compounds which all bear similar characteristics based on similar structures named functional groups. With well over 9 million compounds known to humankind, organic chemistry is by far the largest field of chemistry to date.
If you are not familiar with basic organic chemistry, it is recommended that you do some light research prior to attempting this cache. While it is not impossible to complete this cache without any background knowledge, it is certainly easier!
It is recommended that you park at N45 21.811 W75 14.092
Go to the posted coordinates and search for a task tube. In the task tube you will find a laminated sheet of paper with a set of instructions on it. Follow the instructions to find the next waypoint. When mathematical operations are to be performed on a set of provided coordinates, the operation is to be performed on the decimal portion of the minutes. For example, if you are instructed to add 123 to the north minutes and subtract 321 from the west coordinates of: N45 21.000 W075 14.900 the correct result would be: N45 21.123 W075 14.579
When replacing the instructions into the task tube, please be sure to do so gently, rolling the sheet tightly and placing it just within the tube. Also, please be sure to replace the fastener in the holes at the bottom of the tube!
When placed, the cache contained the following: a log book, two pencils, pencil sharpener, an assortment of bouncy balls, pocket screwdriver, brand new flashlight, PDA, and a few other surprises.

The difficulty has been down-graded since there is reliable cellular service in the area now. Pity really - it was fun to see all the honest, hard work people put into this find prior to cell service.
Please do not post any spoilers (including pictures of the cache area). Any such action will result in the deletion of the offending material. Thanks. Besides, you wouldn't want to make it any easier, would you?! ;-)
A world of credit to Rockumulus for keeping this one alive.
