How Geocaching Works

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

Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the posted coordinates, but is within two miles. Solve the puzzle to obtain the true coordinates.

Latitude

 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

I am a prime number. I have no zeroes. Behead me and I am still a prime number. Behead me again as many times as you can and every time I am still a prime number. I am the longest such prime (base 10) for which this is true. Each of my digits can be represented by a letter, since I do not exceed 26 digits (although I may be shorter). Fill me in above, one digit per cell (although some will be blank if I am less than 26 digits).

Latitude = 37 xx.yyy

xx = D+E+H+K
yyy = (A*C*F*J) +( I*K*P*Q ) (asterisk means multiply)

Longitude

 Spell me here Numerical value (a=1,...,z=26) A B C D E F G H I J
I am a word of at least five letters (although I may be longer). Sometimes I will waken you. Behead me and I will raise you. Behead me again and I will bite you. Fill me in above, one letter per cell (although some will be blank if I am less than 10 letters long), and place the numerical value of each letter in the corresponding cell in row 2.

Longitude = 122 0x.yyy

Use the letters from the third row (having the value of the number directly above) to solve the following equations.

x = F - A
yyy = (D*E*E)*(B-C) (asterisk means multiply)
