Geocache Description:

"An odd puzzle"


I had the opportunity to take a fews days off from the University, where I am a professor of mathematics, and since it was a long time since I last met with my old friend, George Cash, I took the plane to Copenhagen. I was suprised to find that winter in Denmark is almost like winter in St. Petersburg, where I live. Lots of snow, and bitterly cold. Here's a picture from the University:

During the stay George told me about geocaching and the danish geocachers. Especially the "mystery caches" caught my attention, since I'm rather fond of mathematical puzzles myself. George told me that some of the danish cachers were pretty sharp at solving even very difficult puzzles, so I got this idea about making a puzzle of my own just to test the danish geocachers. George helped me to sign up as a  member and also to fill in the forms for a new cache, and here it is!

The puzzzle goes like this:

28 4 5 390 3298
5 798 4805 398 9
10 123 6 48 3
16 1202 5 18 61

Happy hunting!

George also helped me getting a translation into danish.


Dansk:

"Bugs" Travalski, der er professor i matematik ved universitetet i St. Petersborg fortæller:

"Jeg havde pludselig mulighed for et par fridage, og da jeg ikke havde set min gode ven, George Cash i nogen tid, tog jeg flyveren til København (oversætterens note: hvor G. Cash opholdt sig efter at have hjulpet Bugs med en opgave vedr. en kinesisk skat). Jeg var overrasket over at se at vinteren i Danmark meget lignede den jeg kender fra St. Petersborg: masser af sne og rigtig koldt.

Billedet foroven er fra universitetet.

Under mit ophold fortalte George mig om geocaching og de danske geocachere. Specielt de såkaldte "mystery caches" fangede min opmræksomhed, da jeg selv holder meget af matematiske opgaver. George fortalte mig at nogle af de danske cachere var meget kvikket til at løse selv meget svære opgaver. Jeg fik derfor ideen med at lave min egen opgave, for at se om de nu var så skrappe. George hjalp mig med at blive medlem på geocaching.com og med at udfylde en cache formular, så her er opgaven.

God jagt!
