This cache has been archived.

LavaLizard: As there's been no cache to find for months, I'm archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If the cache owner wishes to repair/replace the cache sometime in the future, just contact us (by email), and assuming it meets the guidelines, we'll be happy to unarchive it.

Geocache Description:

This cache is NOT to be found at the above coordinates. The coords above ARE a good paved place to park to begin your hunt, only about 600 feet from the cache.

There are many different flavors of abacuses (abaci?), this one is Japanese. Known as Soroban, or "Counting Tray", many arithmetic operations can be performed very quickly on this device by a skilled user. Your task is much simpler, to read out a pair of numbers as displayed in the two pictures below, to determine the actual North and West coordinates of this puzzle cache.

Happy Hunting!
