The coordinates at the top of the page are for the municipal water tower in Pendleton, N.Y.; the cache is not located at those coordinates. The cache is located within a three mile radius of the listed coordinates.

To find this cache, you must decipher the codex below, written in the language of an ancient civilization. With a little research on Chac, you should easily be able to determine the ancient civilization in question. You'll then have to research and become fluent with their numbering system to get the coords for the actual cache. This civilization used no decimal points, but once you're on the right track with the solution, it should be totally obvious where you need to place them. Deciphering the two heiroglyphic figures in the picture will be helpful, but not necessary.

As far as the cache itself, you can find parking about .25 miles west of it. The cache is not far off a trail, but you'll be in for a short dose of heavy duty bushwacking. I recommend long pants all times of the year, and bug spray in season. I'm no botanist, but I do believe there is a small amount of poison ivy in the area.

The container is a 7 Qt. cylindrical Lock-N-Lock container, wrapped in camo tape. It contains only small quality trade items and a logbook, so there should be quite a bit of space left over for trading or TB's.

Found while out doing some heavy winter caching in the area.

I have seen this in a puzzle cache before so I was actually able to solve it without looking at anything.
While that skill is a plus I must admit it really does not come in handy too often.

Found parking easily and the cache was no problem - loved the area.

No Trade - TFTC - Nice Hide.

I had lots of fun with this one... I learned a new numbering system (which just might come in handy some day!) and had a very enjoyable hunt. I'm not one for hot weather, so today was very pleasant for me - even the constant drizzle was refreshing :) I do have to say that being shorter didn't help on this one... but I found it, and that's all that matters!

TNLNSL TFTC!

I don't want to give too much away, but there is a very small public parking area nearby a much more noticable parking area that is posted. Of course you could just tell law enforcement that Chac commanded you to park there. I'm sure Rayman enjoyed his walk, and blood donation, though.

Parked real close at a pull-off area. Happy to see and use the "temp-bridge" over the ditch.
No problems finding the cache.
TN/LN/SL. TFTC.

Parked farther away than I think I needed to, as the area I think I was supposed to park in had a sign saying I couldn't park there, and there were people milling about. I enjoyed the longer walk anyways. Found cache location pretty easily, and boy were the skeeters out. For a change though they pretty much left me alone. TNLNSL, TFTC.

Well Woodie got off the school bus and saw me logging the morning finds. He got a little irked that I left him behind in school again. He discussed what he learned and who's lunch money he extorted an he mentioned something about the ancient blank culture. Well the bells went off and I challanged him to solve the riddle promising if he did we'd pack up (yeah right like we ever unpack) and head out. I also mentioned that I'd like to try that other nearby multiplicity. So you know the rest, he figured it out, yelled out the door to round up some neighborhood crew members, and off we went. As the others have reported solving the puzzle may be the most dificult part of this one. We parked nearby and Woodie put his nose to the ground and went to work coming up with the cache in minutes. Woodie and another crew member claimed some booty, I think a carabiner and Mick's last dollar and we left behind a flashlight and a hot wheels car. Thanks for the variation as it is the spice of geocaching life.

Oddly enough, I had studied this in high school for extra credit! Great puzzle cache Urkel!
And of course, getting the FTF on an Urkel cache just makes it sweeter.
