I have looked at a cache in Bath that says it is a Seattle puzzle? What exactly does that mean? I can't make heads or tails of the clues to figure out the puzzle. I'm not looking for the answer but just a description or a place to start. Thanks.

I would try right clicking on the cache page and then view source. Hope that helps

I believe the person who placed the cache in Bath, got the idea while visiting Seattle. Or saw this type of puzzle listed and it was in Seattle.
It happens quite often that while visiting an area, one sees a type of cache or type of hide and likes it enough to do the same back home.

My favorite...........a Rhode Island ammo can. Also known as a nano.

Here's the link to one of the caches. There are a couple of these types, all by Circles. I just don't know how to begin with this one. Thanks.

I could never figure this puzzle out either. There are many clues in other cacher's logs but I'm still stumped.

Haffy gave you very good information. Right click and view the source file. It is a big file, but as you look down it you should see something familiar.

It can take several forms, but have a look and see what you find.

Ok, feeling pretty dumb here, but what is the source file?

Forget this question, I reread the post and now can find the source file. Not finding anything familar, but still looking! :)

Why do you have to make it sound so easy. It took me two good looks but there it is. Thank you sir. The clue wasn't doing for me, not obvious enough for me.:o

Maybe so, but we note that you are already trying to adopt a southern accent! :p:p

Solving the puzzle is only half of the work. This one was a great hide too! Good luck.

Now you've gone and done it. She's been "spoiled" again! :p I'm betting on the kids finding it first.

No help there but thank you Haffy and Gob-ler. OK, now I need to find the time to go find it since I did find the coordinates, at least I thought I did. Gob-ler asked me this weekend if I had the right coordinates. I thought I did but didn't look yet. And, my thoughts that it was a nano made someone upset. That was a guess if you think someone told me...
