JrBYRDMAN162: Sorry folks, but unfortunately I have to close this one out. It had a great run. I have no idea when I'll be able to get back to the United States, let alone Tennessee to repair it. Thanks to Hoot Owl for all his help.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

The above coordinates are bogus. They will put you in the middle of a bridge over a river. The cache is "not" here. To get the right coordinates, you must decipher the following equations. The solution to each equation (i.e. A + A=?) represents 1 number in the coordinate.

A x E=
F x C=

A – G= F x E=
B – E= L x S=
L + N= U – Z=
H x U= B + H=
S + H= V + F=
F + M= B + L=
W + L= S / B=

These coordinates will take you to a concrete structure. From the SouthEast corner proceed approximately 390 feet with a bearing of 65 degrees magnetic.

This cache is possible alone, but will be a lot easier and definitely a lot more fun in a group. Special equipment will be needed, but more than that… A survival attitude is the key to unlocking the code and finding the cache.

Final is a .50 Ammo can with survival related items. Please take the time to take a picture of yourself or your group with the camera included. All finders must "personally" sign the log to get credit for the cache!

Good Luck to all who attempt it and have fun. There is a special set of goodies for the FTF!!!
