Geocache Description:

Remember my other cache, "My Alien Adventure"??

IT'S BACK......


Alien Resurrection

While investigating Parks in Andover I encountered my ALIEN again. Odd little creature. Seems IT only
had three fingers on each hand. Of course IT had a navigation system far superior to our primitive
GPS system. But IT was fasinated with Geocaching. We talked about geocaching on a galactic scale.
Very interesting idea. Any way we had to work out a conversion back and forth from ITs numbering system
and ours. We Earthlings count based on ten fingers. Works out to be our base 10 numbering system. Like this.....

A number like 234 works out to be:
                          102     101     100
                          100     10      1
x2   x3   x4
                          200  +  30  +   4 = 23410


So this Alien showed me his numbering system based on ITs six fingers. ITs number 234 base 6 would work out like this: 62 61 60 =36 =6 =1 x2 x3 x4 72 + 18 + 4 = 94 base10 So with his advanced math skills he showed me how to change my nubers into ITs numbers. We converted my base 10 number of 380 into ITs numbering system like this.... 380 ÷ 6= 63 remainder 2 63 ÷ 6= 10 remainder 3 10 ÷ 6= 1 remainder 4 1 ÷ 6= 0 remainder 1 ^ reading up 1432 base6 380 base10 = 1432 base6 proof by converting back. 63 62 61 60 =216 =36 =6 =1 x1 x4 x3 x2 216 + 144 + 18 + 2 = 38010 1432 base6 = 380 base10 With these basics set down we aggred that we could encode ITs hiding spot here on earth if we keep every thing as whole numbers "Degrees" "minutes" point "decimal part of minutes" ie 45 degrees 22 minutes and .175 minutes would have each group of numbers converted and set into place. 4510 = 1136 2210 = 346 17510 =4516 would be written as 136 degrees 34.451 minutes To convert back... <hr> 1136 60 = 1 X 3= 3 61 = 6 X 1= 6 62 = 36 X 1= 36 36 + 6 + 3 = 45 base10 <hr> 346 60 = 1 X 4= 4 61 = 6 X 3= 18 18 + 4 = 22 base10 <hr> 4516 60 = 1 X 1= 1 61 = 6 X 5= 30 62 = 36 X 4=144 144 + 30 + 1 = 175 base10 <hr> The above given coordinates are to the general area of the park off of Crosstown.
The Aliens stach is stored at
Latitude North 1136 degrees 226 minutes . 40306
Longitude West 2336 degrees 306 minutes . 25426
Thanks again to ae0al for allowing me to adopt this cache and keep the Alien puzzle going!
