This is our second cache placed on the same day as our first. We were on a "bike hike" while staying for our annual "6th grade camp" week at Grace Youth Camp. We thought this was a nice place to rest, view the dunes, and swim while biking or hiking around the lake. I've been coming to this lake for years, and never noticed these public access places until I rode past them slowly on a bike.
To find the coords of the 2nd stage, you must read the sign nearest the lake at the first stage:
"__ _______ __ _____ __ ______ ______"
Find the MIDDLE word in the above sentence (5 letters).
Write this word into the 5 missing digits of the 2nd stage coords below.
Then use the table below to translate these characters to digits (not all characters will be used):
'A'=6; 'B'=3; 'E'=7; 'I'=2; 'M'=1; 'O'=0; 'S'=9;
