Puzzle solved! [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
Thanks everyone. Still not clear, but a lot better than my translation which was pure gibberish.

This came from a Geocaching puzzle. I would expect the final answer to be in the following format and within a mile of

N53 44.802
W 1 5.174

The translation above of

N54 73.376
W 1 4.762

whilst maybe an accurate translation may need a final twist, perhaps converting the base of the number.





OK I have it now. Using the translation you guys kindly provided

N54 73.376
W 1 4.257

This is in the Elfish duodecimal system. Convert it to our decimal system then you get

N53 43.951
W 1 4.367

Once again many thanks for everyone taking the time to help me solve my puzzle. It was kind of you and is appreciated.

Regards
