Geocache Description:

THE CACHE IS NOT AT THE LISTED COORDINATES. You must decrypt the puzzle below to find the true coordinates to the cache. The cache container is an ammo box. Most of the way is by path but some bushwhacking is required to retrieve the final cache.


Darkness once again settles in over the city streets of Paris. A lone sentinel stands guard high atop the cathedral’s spires. The coldness of the gargoyle’s stony skin awakens Nicole from her blank stare. The Geo-Justice League , what once was a bright flame against tyrannical forces that plagued the earth and its natural resources; has now been reduced to a mere flicker, represented only by a single member, Nicole Harrison. For four long weeks, IONIS and his evil minions have held mother earth ransom, plunging her into complete darkness by blocking the electromagnetic energy of the world’s satellite systems. All international marketplaces have come to a complete standstill.

In a desperate attempt to dismantle IONIS’s devices, the Geo-Justice League has dispatched four of its premier members to the farthest geographical points on the earth to locate the transmission devices. If anyone were to scramble the ionosphere and troposphere, it would most likely originate from these points.

Ruffian is sent to the northernmost point on land, Kaffeklubben Island, north of Greenland.

Bajac is dispatched to the easternmost point on land. To the balmy sun-drenched beaches of Caroline Island, Kiribati.

Pyromania is sequestered to the southernmost point on land. The frozen wasteland of the geographic South Pole.

And Animalia is placed in the westernmost point on land. Attu Island, Alaska.

Four weeks have also passed since anyone has heard back from the dispatched members of the Geo-Justice League. Nicole is suddenly startled by a knock at her apartment door. Weapons drawn, Nicole cautiously makes her way to the door. Glancing down she spies an envelope that has been shoved under the door. Inside the packet she learns the fate of her Geo-Justice colleagues. IONIS has sent her his trophies of war, the bloodied tracking badges of her fallen friends, with a cryptic riddle message attached to each. The remainder of the letter is an invitation to Geo-Woman to a final showdown of sorts between IONIS and herself. To the victor goes the spoils, global domination or liberation of the earth. The battle lines have been drawn and now it is only a matter of deciphering the riddles to find the final coordinates.

Cache coordinates: N 39ºA.B94 W 077ºC.D54

Solve all four of the one word answer riddles. Count the number of letters in each word and perform the following math to find the correct coordinates:
A=A - 2
B=B + 3
C=C + 26
D=D + 2

A lone headlight pierces the blackness of the night. As Nicole shifts her Ducati into third gear, she goes over the riddles and final coordinates again in her head. Kicking the bike now into fourth gear, the divider lines quickly begin to blend as one. Nicole is now certain of her final coordinates and of her destiny.

Congratulations to Rufnredy (Ruffian) on FTF! Who better than one of the Geo-Justice League's members to be the first.
