Tip of the Day 11/12:Puzzle caches —other coordinate systems

Find It Friday is taking a turn for the puzzling the next few weeks. We’ve heard from a lot of cachers that they don’t even try puzzle caches because they just don’t know where to start. We’re here to help, as always! We found a great resource on the Geocaching NSW site and Darren Osborne has agreed to let us share it with you.

Some puzzles result in coordinates that are not in the commonly used “degrees-decimal minutes”format. They may be decimal degrees (S33.5684 E151.1789),degrees minutes seconds (S33 24′31”E151 03′12”),or other grid references (UTM55 12 1235).
