Geocache Description:

At the cache location either you decide to visit your friend Pépé in Quito or Santa at home you’ll have to fly the same distance!

At the posted coordinates look for a date printed in the concrete. Use this number to figure out your second waypoint:

To get the north coordinate N 45°XX.XXX divide that number by 5813.9534883 and to get the west coordinate W 72°YY.YYY divide that same number by 335.1768057

At the second waypoint look for a date printed in the brass. Use this number to figure out your third waypoint:

To get the north coordinate N 45°XX.XXX divide that number by 5790.5604719 and to get the west coordinate W 72°YY.YYY divide that same number by 301.8606796

At the third waypoint look for a date printed in the concrete. Use this number to figure out your forth waypoint:

To get the north coordinate N 45°XX.XXX divide that number by 5449.7041420
and to get the west coordinate W 72°YY.YYY divide that same number by 278.0377358

At the forth waypoint look for a date printed in the concrete. Use this number to figure out your fifth waypoint:

To get the north coordinate N 45°XX.XXX divide that number by 5690.3409090
and to get the west coordinate W 72°YY.YYY divide that same number by 234.7907630

At the fifth waypoint look around and answer this question: How many white columns in Canada? Use this number to figure out your sixth waypoint:

To get the north coordinate N 45°XX.XXX multiply that number by 0.0865 and to get the west coordinate W 72°YY.YYY multiply that same number by 1.97425

At the sixth waypoint look for a 3 digit number followed by a letter printed in the concrete. Forget the letter but keep in mind the 3 digits. They'll be usefull at the last waypoint to spin the "wheels of fortune". Use this number to figure out the seventh and last waypoint:

To get the north coordinate N 45°XX.XXX divide that number by 1580.73654
and to get the west coordinate W 72°YY.YYY divide that same number by 69.63684

Congratulations! You can now spin the wheels and do your trades. The cache contains: a logbook, a ve2ogh post card, a thermometer, a CD, a ball, two canadian flags, two stamps, a loonie, some stickers and the "Lady Liberty" TB.
