Las Vegas Puzzler

We encountered a delightful puzzle cache this week that forced us to rely on wits,instincts and,yes,a little cheating.

The coordinates didn’t lead us to the cache,but rather to a place nearby. The real location was buried in a series of letters and numbers that didn’t make any sense:A4,444-445,309,etc. We walked for several blocks looking for an address that matched one of these clues but couldn’t find anything. Frustrated,we quit for the day and consulted the logs.

That’s where we cheated a little. Buried way down in the logs was a photo someone had taken in front of the building where the cache was hidden. The address was clearly visible. We scampered back to that address,but the clues still didn’t make sense. The building was a county government office and the door was guarded. The officer assumed we were looking for a marriage license and politely pointed us down the street. We were about to leave in resignation,when Dana noticed a sign on the wall.

“Fourth floor,”she said. “That’s the #400 in the clue!”

And so it was. It turned out the fourth floor housed a law library that was open to the public. Once we arrived,everything fell into place. The clues led us to shelf and a book. In the middle of the book was the log. We laughed,signed and high-fived. This was one cache that wouldn’t get away!
