Don't be confused! The above coordinates are *not* the cache coordinates! The coordinates at the top of the page are for a small park 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.

If you read the Harry Potter books or watch the movies, you'll know that the Confundus Charm is used to confuse an object or person, to make them believe what the spell caster wants them to. Mad-Eye Moody figured out that the Goblet which chose the Champions for the Triwizard Tournament was Confunded to select four contestants instead of three... The extra person, of course, being poor Harry.

While being on the receiving end of the Confundus Charm wouldn't be so great, being able to perform it would sure come in handy - especially when that police officer is about to write you that speeding ticket!

I don't want to hex anyone too badly, so I am going to use this beginner-grade Su Doku puzzle to Confund you. If you resist the charm and solve the puzzle correctly, a cache in the form of a 50 cal. ammo can awaits you! There is a very small parking area less than 1/4 mile south of the cache. Presently, in the middle of March, the cache is very easily accessed. Once the growing season begins, there will be some pretty crazy bushwhacking required... Either way, no bushwhacking is needed until the last 80 feet. Also, be aware that these trails are heavily used by ATVers - they can become very muddy. And keep an eye out for “traffic”.

After solving the puzzle, use the number at the intersection of the two icons to complete the correct coordinates.

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

I will start with a thank you for fixing the page quickly enough for me to solve it and throw it on my route for today. Nice easy puzzle and an easy find after a short but scenic hike. The snow made finding the parking location difficult despite the fact that I have used this parking area before. No trouble finding the cache once I got there. No bushwacking I just followed the tracks of the "cache deer." Another nice hide.

No Trade - TFTC - Nice Hide.

Decided to start logging our finds through Navicache as well as gc.com. Fun is the same at either site. I planned to be on my way back to Ohio. Gave up at 4:30 and decided to grab a few caches instead. I enjoyed the puzzle and the walk to the cache was great. Thanks for a little medication for my spring fever.

A lotta logs over here, and a lotta love. So the puzzle is interesting, Tried for about 15 minutes the first time, and I wasn't even close. Then the 2nd time, I re-started from scratch, and had it in about 4 minutes flat. Knew as soon as I found a little parking area near the cache, I couldn't have possibly screwed it up. Yepper, bushwacking will definately suck in the summer, but it's not like you don't warn people. There's actually a somewhat easy route to the cache, but picking it on your way in is pretty unlikely ;-). I left a WG$, took a pink golfball, which will be pretty funny if I ever get out golfing again (this geocaching thing prevents that from happening). Thanks for the cache Gryffindor, fine job.

Nice hide. Came from the small parking area and had no problems getting to it. I know how CC feels because I usually do the same thing. Any how Thanks for the fun. Outdoorkpn.

Help, did not mean to log this find twice! Can anyone delete the duplicate log entry? Thanks!

Hooray, Aquaholic2 is logging a STF for this cache. When the email arrive this morning (23Mar), MrsAquaholic2 quickly solved the puzzle and raced out the door. When I got to the cache & opened the log book, I was astonished (or confounded) to see that someone else had already been there, two days ago!! So when I got home, I did a bit of sleuthing and have added Navicache.com to our geocaching favorites! I now understand how someone else got there first & humbly accept second to find on this site! Loved the sudoku puzzle angle as well as the Harry Potter references! Had no trouble getting to the cache site. :) Took parking in two different spots to determine the best approach. SL/took markers & left mini brush, glass fish and one other trinket. Thanks for the cache and for introducing us to Navicache! (If someone could have seen my face when I saw the log book was already signed! That would have been a picture!)

Congrats once again to CC for FTF! Navicache watchers *really* had the advantage on this one... it's still waiting for approval on the other site, even tho' this was submitted to both sites at the same time!

Bummer that the Confundus Charm worked *too* well - now I don't get the director's version of log :( I would have *loved* to hear about the bushwacking from where I imagined you parked <hee hee!>

Thanks for visiting another of my caches :)

Somehow my fat fingers have deleted a lengthy log entry three times in a row so now you only get the Reader's Digest version. Saw this one last night, checked on it this morning, worked the puzzle out at work and then grabbed Woody and Vmphunter for a run after dinner. Our solution placed us five feet from the cache and we were surprised no log entries when we checked the log. Traded a marker set and sticky hands for a deck of cards and the Pillsbury Dough Boy and claimed FTF at 6:35 PM almost 20 hours after posting. That's an eternity even on this site lately.

Our bigest mistake of the day was passing the suggested parking area and bushwhacking in from a closer spot on the road. Suffice to say we walked out the long way.

Thanks for your creativity. These puzzle caches keep it interesting.

The deleted cache was way longer and tons funnier.
