It looks like water is there.  It looks like it is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

I was being serious... it is in the middle of the ocean and google maps won't zoom in to see if there is a little island there or something.

I was being serious too. I'm on a serious trail of clues and it was important to know that I was on the WRONG track with being in the middle of the Pacific!

I think 42N is correct, but 135 means something else. Never mind, I'm babbling

Well, if you change the 135 from W to E, you get a spot in the little tail of Russia that is just east of China...

At 42.2N  134.25W is Menard Seamount (an underwater mountain rising above the ocean floor).  It's not exactly at your coordinates but it's close.

ok,  find a map of the world that has latitude and longitude grid on it.

go north (up) of the equator 42 degrees.  there will be horizontal labeled lines every five or ten degrees put one finger on that line, or more likely somewhere between the   40 and the 45 lines. 

now find the lines that go up and down.  find the one that says 135 on it. put a finger from the other hand on it.

follow both lines with your fingers until your fingers collide.  Where your fingers collide is the spot your'e looking for.   This spot is in the North Pacific Ocean off to the west of  Vancouver Island. I hope you haven't lost your buried treasure there!

Lots and lots of excellent ideas. I keep thinking! ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!!!

Here's the deal, and I'm totally giving my game away, but whatever ... YOU drive/hike there and start digging if you want.

A famous author in his new book gives 8 clues in 8 illustrations leading to a buried cache. He even posts a photo of it. So far no one has located it yet, despite his millions of readers.

I don't know if the clues are in order, but I know they are correct. (For example, in one illustration, there is Morse code on a tiny piece of paper, which spells out BASIN).

The clues, in the order in which they appear, and in brackets my best guess at meaning are:

1. California VESA 99-S [If you take the 99-S from the Oregon border, you will hit Vesa Creek Trail]

2. DFG [Department of Fish and Game--have searched fruitlessly for a station around there. Maybe there is a map or pamphlet or license I need to obtain from the DFG?]

3. 8-5 [I have no idea. DFG is open from 8-5? Interstate 5? 8 miles down from I-5 (which is also 99-S) is where you'd go to get to Vesa Creek Trail].

4. 45 POLICE [.45 police revolver? What would I need that for? To blow the cache case open? There's no exit #45 anywhere near there, and the nearest police station is in Yreka, but I can't figure out what 45 has to do with POLICE.]

5. 42nd St., Locker #135. [Vesa Creek Trail is at 42N longitude. Still trying to figure 135 out.]

6. 25 PACES EAST

7. BIG

8. BASIN [If the clues are in order and I've gotten this far, then the cache is 25 paces east of the big basin. And there is one around Vesa Creek Trail.]

Any takers? I am totally obsessed with this

There is a Big Basin State Park in Oakland.  Considering the size of the country or the world, that isn't too far from where you are looking.  Maybe the Vesa Creek Trail ends up in Big Basin or something.  I didn't see Vesa Creek Trail, but I saw a bunch of other _____ Creek Trails.  No reference to 135 immediately jumped out at me, but I didn't look all that much either.   Good luck and do let us know how this turns out.

Highway 1 goes through Big Basin.  Vesa Creek Trail is 34.4 miles long.  Does that make a 135?  Still don't see anything about a 45 (although they do have 45% humidity today).

Here is part of the directions for getting to Big Basin (please note that there are two references to "85" in there). 

"Route 2 (From San Francisco, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Palo Alto)

Take either the 101 freeway south or 280 freeway south. From there take the 85 freeway south. Exit 85 at Saratoga Road. Turn right and head west on Saratoga Road. After a few miles, you'll encounter a signal. Pick up Highway 9 here; take a right and drive through the quaint shopping area of Saratoga. The road then begins to climb into the mountains. Stay on 9 as it winds through the mountains for 12 miles. You will then see a sign for Highway 236/Big Basin. Turn right onto Highway 236 and continue on this road for 9 miles until you come to Park Headquarters."

I have to get back to work.

I just finished reading emergency by neil strauss. you have most of the clues correct. port authority has nothing to do with clue. look between address and locker #. I beleive it says level tree or level three. all the cluse are light gray and hard to find.
