    Fantastic Lars! Your solution is to two decimals of seconds. The cache is surely yours :) Dave-you are there also but you rounded to the nearest second so you would be scouting around a bit for the prize (within 50 ft).

    I had trouble with the units because my PDA works in minutes and tenths and my calculator in decimal degrees.

    My solution
    38d 24' 59.76" N
    82d 21' 21.60" W
    by pure math, no plotting. I didn't notice any mix up of units.
