Geocache Description:

This old message was unearthed recently up on Bogus Mountain near the town of Bethel CT., during a “mock” military style engagement.

U33 de U571 1800 27/10/34

Encrypted above, are the distance in meters and bearing [ true] from posted coordinates to an actual cache, a small tupperware container hidden in a more remote, less traveled part of Huntington State park in Bethel Ct.

Deciphering message is near impossible without knowing the KEY, a three letter [ trigram ] secret code such as “XYZ” that must be found as the secret bonus code at one of my other caches. or at one of three of *** giriandos caches [ You did make a note of the ones you’ve already found? ]
This “XYZ” is just for testing or calibration purposes to check if you have “the right stuff ?”….as an example, FYBJYU translates to BETHEL.
Some day shall make this all very simple by publishing the code ??? ...
THAT DAY HAS finally ARRIVED [ nov 21/ 2014 ] : ok,ok..and overall cache difficulty has been knocked down a few notches.
*** 3 of giriandos caches..shucks, how many does he have=[ lots! ] no one can find all those silly codes, and anyway...the one needed is at final location of the night cache !!! yes, THAT one ! so now what..ok ok go find one of the easier to find codes at my easiest cache..the one at the rest area, however, this code is only a partial solution !! ...getting a bit easier??? now go check the hint for more help.
