THE CACHE IS NOT AT POSTED COORDINATES, BUT IT IS WITHIN A MILE. Bring your own pen!
This fast food jester named Jack,
Who's well known for his grub in a sack,
Snuck out of his shop,
Just to make a cache drop,
Or was it really a Big Mac attack?
This puzzle involves a keyword substitution cipher. The hardest part may be in determining the key. But then again, maybe not. I learned how to do this type of cipher by doing one of The Rat's puzzle caches, which may help you get started. Decrypt this ciphertext to determine the correct coordinates for the cache.
3/15/05 - Added hint numbers 2 & 3.
4/23/05 - Clarified hint #2 (thanks zipcode!)
11/11/05 - Sometime in the next 2 to 4 weeks I intend to provide instructions for solving this cache... To make it more of a cipher tutorial... To convince those of you that may have an aversion to puzzles that these are indeed solveable by anyone. So if you've solved the puzzle, get to it soon! Once I add the instructions, the difficulty will be reduced from 3.5 stars to 2.5 stars.
01/21/06 - SOLUTION SPOILER: If you want explicit instructions on how to solve this puzzle, click HERE. If you used the spoiler solution, the difficulty is reduced to 2.5 stars.
