I am working on a short series and would like to have a clue letter in each cache needed to solve a puzzle for the final cache.
Once you think you have the correct key word or phrase this will get you the coordinates for the cache.
Is there any programs where you enter the "key word" to get the coordinates if your answer is right?

All I have been able to find is GeoChecker which tells you if you have solved the proper coordinates from a puzzle.

Create an Gmail email account.
Put it in 'vacation response' mode, it will automatically reply with a pre-canned email to the sender(your final info)

Your Keyword could be the email account: ie XXXXXX @ gmail.com

make it a random set of characters so people dont guess it after only doing some of the caches.

ie: YR2VQ.EP3 @ gmail.com ... you get the idea.

Does that mean Grafinator just emails you the final location co-ordinates and you don't have to bother going to the other waypoints first?

Very Happy

You use the clues collected in the first four caches to create a e mail address that sends you the final cords well worth doing this series
