Took quite a while to solve this one but was able to put all the pieces together the other day. Had some help on the first part since I was not seeing the connection. Arrived at the final puzzle and had to collect all the hints I could. I misinterpreted the hints and was on the right track but was working on a more difficult solution. Got a nudge from the CO and the puzzle felt into place nicely. Looked at the final solution and the coordinates finally appeared. Glad the hide wasn't difficult like the puzzle. Quick find at the coordinates. Nice to be able to make this find him cross it off my list. Thanks to Domerdoc, WA1729, and the CO. Great puzzle.
