Rosie's Rangers: I went up the Wrekin to assess the new restrictions and sure enough, as manxrose said it is now a no go area so I collected the cache and sorry to say this one has to call time. It was fun for the 7.5 years it lasted and a massive thanks to all the loggers who played the game and went along with the fun [:D] [8D] [}:)].

For those that went and were disappointed by the lack of waterfalls, bats and many other fascinating adventures, I would like to apologise on behalf of the previous finders for their misleading logs, but I never said they were there so you can't blame me (or can you [;)]). Anyway, time to[i][b] Let Sleeping Dogs [red]LIE[/red]!!!![/b][/i] [:O]

Geocache Description:

Not at the posted Coordinates!! - The co-ords are correct, now go and find the first stage! If you've printed this off or looking at it on your PDA, you can now see the answer too

All you have to do is decipher the clues below. The results will lead you on a geocaching adventure around the lesser known parts of the Wrekin. Make sure you bring a drink and wear decent boots, it can be a bit wet and muddy in places. If you are stuck with the puzzle feel free to email us for some clues.

Inside the first stage you will find a stack of instruction cards. Take 1 card with you, as you'll need it later on. Make sure you follow these instructions carefully.

Here are your clues for the first stage. These are red herrings!

N52°

W002°

Lemon juice and light bulbs might help. - Now you can see it.

207 105 67 - Spare Ribs, Crispy Duck, Spring Roll.

19C0BGZ - Anagram of the waypoint?. Oh yes, the ? picture is Klingon for Rosie's Rangers (Sorry about that) ;o)
WARNING! There is no need to cross onto private property, mind you head in the tunnel and watch the geo-dogs and mini cachers around the cave entrance.

CACHE UPDATE (28 Jan 08): Removed two stages leaving it as a 3 stage cache, should be able to complete it in less than 2 hours now. Torch recommended for 2nd stage, but not essential. Spoiler photo updated for stage 1.
Good Luck!






Nothing to see here! Move along please. :)

Congratulations to snerdbe for being the FTF
