May I ask, why so sour about a puzzle?
Sharp observation skills!
I am a bit sour but not so much with the puzzle.
I'm a bit sour for a number of things:
1.) While diving into this puzzle (and the Geocache community) I have noticed how much dedication and love these people have for their hobby. A key
part is keeping any sollution you find to your self because it would ruin the whole experience for fellow Geo-cachers. Therefor I do not understand
why the OP created this thread with the risk of an ATS member posting the sollution.
2.) If you are trying to solve this puzzle by overlaying it on a folding diagram (which, I must say, is an ingenius approach
) and you
communicated with the OP about your findings he should have told you that your technique will not solve this puzzle.
3.) And third (but not less important) your statement:
"I know this is ripped off of a geo-caching website as well, so I know what the answer is already.."
No you don't. Put please correct me if I am wrong.
All-in-all I get the impression the OP does not have the answer him self and is counting on the collective brainpower of ATS to solve it. Which is
fine ofcourse but he should state this in his OP.
On the other hand...I could be completly wrong in my conclusion so I will forward the north (or west) coordinates to the OP and in return I would like
to receive the west (or north) coordinates as verification.
Apart from these issues this has been a wonderful puzzle experience!!
