Geocache Description:


[français]
Le canal du Rhône au Rhin, ou parfois canal Rhin-Rhône , permet de connecter les ports maritimes du nord de l'Europe avec ceux de la Méditerranée. Avant de se jeter dans le Rhône, le canal relie en fait Strasbourg à la Saône. De nos jours, le transport des marchandises (bois, sable, etc) a laissé une large place au tourisme fluvial qui se développe de plus en plus (location de bateaux à la journée ou à la semaine, etc).

Pour cette cache, l'idéal est de prendre votre vélo et de rejoindre la piste cyclable qui borde le canal. Il est également possible de se rapprocher en prenant le bus n°7 (terminus Fort Uhrich). En voiture, les coordonnées de GC127M4 sont celles du parking le plus proche.

Au STAGE1, trouvez un nombre de quatre chiffres (ABCD). Ensuite, dans la direction du STAGE2 et à moins de 30 mètres de ce dernier, trouvez EFG.H

Pour terminer, calculez:
  nnn = 104 + BCD
  eee = (7 * EFG) - 4

Le final est à N48°31.nnn E007°43.eee


[english]
The Rhône to Rhine channel, or sometimes "Rhin-Rhône" channel, connects the seaports of the north of Europe with those of the Mediterranean. Before throwing itself in the Rhône, the channel connects in fact Strasbourg to the Saône river. Nowadays, the carriage of the goods (wood, sand, etc) left a broad place to river tourism (boats rental, etc).

The best way to make this hiding place is to take your bicycle and to join the cycle track which skirts the channel. It is also possible to go there using the bus (#7, terminus Fort Uhrich). By car, the coordinates of GC127M4 are those of the nearest parking.

At STAGE1, find a number of four digits (ABCD). Then, in the direction of STAGE2 and within less than 30 meters of this last point, find EFG.H

To finish, calculate:
  nnn = 104 + BCD
  eee = (7 * EFG) - 4

The final is at N48°31.nnn E007°43.eee
