Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the fairest cache of them all?

However, things aren’t always as they appear. Your help is needed to solve this backward Mystery Cache and unlock the cache container! Do you have the right Tool of the Trade to crack the code for our Geocache of the Week, GC8T0TB?

Solving the mystery on the cache page is the first challenge to overcome. At first glance, the cache page looks covered in made-up words from another planet. After a closer look, the letters start to look familiar, but they don’t make total sense. Who knew the most challenging part of the cache was reading the cache page?!

Decipher the text and solve for the coordinates; next, search for the right tool to help you on this journey. Slow and steady wins the race, and patience is the key to cracking the code on this cache page. Once the correct coordinates are collected, and you have the right tool, it’s time to take the challenge to GZ and figure out how to open the cache container.

You locate the cache container, and its silver shine is blinding! You start to investigate how it will open but don’t know how to do it. Then, remembering the hint from GC8T0TB, you grab your tool out of your geocaching toolkit and start working on collecting the code digits. Be careful to go nice and slow; your eyes may start playing tricks on you since everything is still backward!

Finally, the mirror reflects the perfect numbers to crack the code, and the cache door opens! Inside are boxes of trackables and SWAG items to discover and trade, as well as a perfectly kept logbook to ink your name along with other great geocachers that have conquered this same task.
