The above coordinates are false. The cache is somewhere in Stiglmeier Park, and is my favorite container: an ammo-box. To find the cache you'll have to decipher these Mahjong tiles.

Did you ever hear of the game "Mahjong"? I didn't until last week! When I saw it I knew I had to place a cache that integrated the game.

Mahjong originated in China, but is quite popular throughout all of Asia. The western game that resembles it the most is gin rummy.

Basically to win the game you must make several suits, each of which has 13-16 tiles.

The last number in your north row will be "0", as well as the first number in your west row.

No matter how hard I try I can never spell Mahjong right...haha. As HB puts it, we were "tearing up" Losson this evening. It was nice to be able to cache with a good geo-bud and get a very nice tour of this part of the park (which I hadn't visited since another HB cache killed my GPS over the winter!!! ). So since he never paid the bill for the damage, I decided he should accompany me on a few Losson caches today.

Happily he obliged...not because he felt he needed to atone for my dearly departed Magellan, but because he could run cache maintenance and laugh at me as I tried to find some of his caches. What a punk! Haha.

This was a great night to be in Losson, and after finding the cache we were on our way out when we ran into a couple that asked us, "did you see any deer?" This threw me off (because at first I thought it was some kind of geo-slang I didn't get), but it turns out they really were looking for deer...haha.

Thanks HB for the fun puzzle cache, and for the guided tour of the backwoods (and deer populated) areas of Losson!

I did the puzzle some time ago and finally got around to finding the actual cache. Great work HB!

Enjoyed the hike over to this one from the numbers. I remember seeing a pair of cardinals and some blue jays along the way. Nice hide, TFTC.

This thing's so easy, that it's hard :-). As I said on the other website, great professional job on the container, HB. Walked right up to this thing, coords settled to under 10 feet. TNLNSL, Thanks for another puzzle cache.
