Was given a puzzle that has me lost...thought i would try forums to see if any was an idea.....

The puzzle will either produce a set of numbers or letters that spell a sentence maybe...

The next paragraph is a hint that was given...followed by the puzzle (not suppose to have spaces)....

There are four layers of encryption here, and by that, I mean first you have to do something, then another thing, then another thing, and then another. The first and last things do not have a tool. The middle two are remarkably similar to a few other caches out there. Many of you have already figured out the first step. Several have probably figured out steps 2 and 3. The last step, I've never seen done before.

Rememer this hint from before -

If War and Peace and the Art of War had a baby, that'd make for some interesting reading.
