MoonThirsty - the "make note of which tract" and "code" part refer to another component of a separate puzzle.
It is a 15 stage series. Each one is hidden in a "Forest Tract" (a named area of public forest land in our area).
There is a final cache that can only be found after finding the first 14 stages - each actual cache box has a code number inside and when you add all the numbers from all the caches together you get the location of the final.
The trouble is that no one has been able to solve all of the puzzles needed to find the first 14 caches. So - the number from previous boxes won't help with this one. There is one other of the 14 that remains unsolved. Thus - no one can get to the final without this stage. And no one can solve this stage. And there isn't a clue, or a code. And the puzzle creator refuses hints as he/she thinks their puzles are solvable as is. Based on previous puzzles, I don't think that they are exceptionally bright or diabolical in their puzzle design.
If it helps, the numbers should be in the area of N 44o 34.378 W 079o 38.777
Possibly only the last 6 digits of each section may be encoded as the N44 and W79 parts are assumed (as it must be within 2km of that location).
Thanks for the help!
