    Default Return to Sender

    We are not the only group of people looking for "treasure" out there....

    Welcome to the Wonderful World of Geocaching.

    Seems really easy--> Someone (Geocacher) hides a "treasure" somewhere. He verifies the location by the use of Global Position Satellites (GPS). This data he posts on the Geocaching website on the Internet. It is up to others to locate it. Most of the time, it's easy, but sometimes, it takes years before the "treasure" if found.

    Such is the case for the one in alabama titled "Return to Sender". The final coordinates are hidden in the face of an envelope. GC172RD Return to Sender (Unknown Cache) in Alabama, United States created by Frodo13

    The final coordinates will take the form N 33:zz.zzz W 086:yy.yyy. The link to the cache page holding the envelope is above.

    Who's smart enough to figure it out?

    Here's just the envelope -- can you figure out the correct latitude and longitude?

    The answer should fit the format --> N 33:mm.mmm W 086:mm.mmm
