Geocache Description:

***Cache is NOT at the above Coordinates*** This is in honor of Dinktank11’s 1000th find. 1000 finds…Well, that’s almost as many kids as the nine kids that they have! You will have to find your own way to get there. This can be approached from a couple of different directions and how you do will actually determine the terrain rating. The container itself is a small camoed plastic jar.

So here is the story… Two old cacher friends meet on the trail after many years. The talk for quite a while and try to catch up on old news. The first cacher asks, “How many children do you have?” SECOND CACHER: Six less than Dinktank11. FIRST CACHER: “How old are your children? SECOND CACHER: The product of their ages is 36. FIRST CACHER: But that’s not enough information. SECOND CACHER: Well, the sum of their ages is the same number as the room you and I shared in college. FIRST CACHER: But that’s still not enough. SECOND CACHER: The oldest one has found 1000 caches! FIRST CACHER: Ah, yes… Thank you, now I know the children’s ages! DO YOU KNOW THE CHILDREN’S AGES??? The cache is located at: N 44 1E.FGH W088 2A.BCD NOW to find BCD, take the three children’s ages and arrange them oldest to youngest and that will give you BCD. Add C + D and then subtract 2 and that will give you A. EFGH = ABCD + 3095
