First puzzle... Need help.


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

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?

 

Did you read the hint?

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.

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

 

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