# First puzzle... Need help.

Okay, I spent about an hour solving this thing... I found every number listed. I put in 0 for each number that doesn't exist. I came out with 040008025000740580064 how would I translate the numbers I got into coords? You can see the original cache here http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...49-d70f41bc3706. I'm confused and this is my first puzzle. Help?

Yes, I used to to figure out how to decode... I used this website http://www.zompist.com/numbers.htm to find all the numbers that are listed. When the number wasn't on the list I added a zero. The problem is, there are more zeros than the coordinates are supposed to have. 040008025000740580064 is a lot like the wrong coords which are N 40° 08.000 W 074° 58.000. I tried making the coords N 40° 08.025 W 074° 58.064 but that was wrong according to the checker...

"gradi" probably means "degrees" and not zero. punkt and punto mean point. graus probably also means degrees. that gives you the full coords right there.

don't assume that something you can't find means zero. there's a meaning behind everything.

Nord and Occidental aren't numbers either.

c'mon, you don't have a flashlight?

What's wrong with you? Caches are so much fun at night!

Not always. A few weeks ago I went out at 4am when it was windy and 35°F. It sucked.

This made me LOL. I've said these same words to myself when seeing a new cache come out. Really, I'm still laughing.

Do a Google search for each word . the writer of this puzzle has used a different word in a different language to encrypt the coords . that' what I come up with . MIkey

Let me put on my curmudgeon hat...

Don't y'all know it's considered bad form to post solutions to puzzles in the forums?

AGGH, never thought that anyone in my community would visit these forums. Let me erase the answers I got...
