Geocache Description:

Another impossible kablooey word puzzle cache

The cache is not listed at the posted coordinates.

Kusanagi gave me one of those blinker caches to hide. You can only fit a small piece of paper into these things for people to log; so you don't really want twenty visitors a month because you'll have to be swapping out the log all the time. So, I'll hide this thing in San Francisco, which has less geocacher traffic. And I'll hide the coordinates in a puzzle. Of course, there are always people who will use the hints to brute-force the cache; so I'll make you ask me for hints until somebody gets the FTF. If you send me the coordinates for confirmation, I'll give you a locational hint, as the buildings in the area make GPS signals a little unreliable.

Cache is now a flat log. Recommend an ultra fine point Sharpie for signing (you might have trouble with a ballpoint pen).
