Description:
A short, 2-stage multi-cache near the sledding hill in Harbin Park, Fairfield, Ohio.

Having lived in Texas until a few months ago, neither Miss Pumpkin nor Curly Tiger had ever seen enough snow to go sledding on - until a couple of weeks ago. This cache commemorates their first sledding experience.

Enjoy the view!

At the posted coordinates, look for a small plaque near the base of the flagpole at the top of the sledding hill. The first line of the plaque has a 3-word phrase in quotes. Use the following to decrypt the coordinates for stage 2:

Phrase on the plaque:
''______________|__________|________''

Use the 3-word phrase to determine U, V, W, X, Y, and Z:

U=letter #9, V=letter #8 W=letter #16 X=letter #2 Y=letter #12, and Z=letter #8

Once you have U, V, W, X, Y, and Z, use the decryption key to get the coordinates:

Decryption key:

A=2B=1C=8D=3 E=6
F=9G=5H=0I=4J=7

The coordinates for the final cache are:

N3919.UVW W08434.XYZ

Container is an army-surplus decon container, about twice the size of an Altoids tin.
