This time the cache is at one (and only one) of seven locations within this park as listed below. No matter what happens, Rabbitto will score 4 points. Your starting score is 8 points, however, each time you search one of the 7 locations, no matter if your search is successful or not, you lose one point. Thus, if you find the cache in the first place you look, you will only lose one point and score 7. If Rabbitto’s Psych is successful and you search all 7 places before you find the cache, you will score only 1 point.
At each of the six ‘false’ locations there is no cache or anything else to indicate that you have chosen incorrectly.
However - at all seven locations, instructions to find the alleged cache are very detailed and if you have chosen correctly, you will have the cache within your hands within a few seconds. There should be no need to dismantle everything at each cache site. For the same reason as above, please leave any site you search, including the cache location, in exactly the same condition as you find it.
Each cache site has specific rules about what constitutes a legitimate search so be careful when approaching each of those sites lest you ‘search’ by accident. Any tricky stretching of ‘loopholes’ in the search criteria is also counted as a search.
On logging, please mention your final score and any thoughts from your search but don’t give away any hints as to which spots you did or did not search. Make sure that the next geocacher in has no more information than you did.
If you are geocaching with other people, you must either all enter the park individually to play or play and score together as a group. ie no watching the other person first.
Most importantly, win or lose, this is just an opportunity to try something a little different and have some fun on our caching journey, so please enjoy the challenge and take any results with a grain of salt.
1. Ground Zero (The listed co-ordinates)
Just behind the information sign was the location of the original cache (Psychology 101). This cache was a 2 litre container but its size was probably its undoing. To rectify this, we have placed a magnetic key holder at the base of the rear of the sign. The beauty is that it only takes a little bit of cover to keep this one completely hidden and there is plenty of that here.
This will be the first place you search because - it’s just too easy. A 7-4 win without even moving from GZ.
This will be the last place you search because - it’s just too easy. Why would we take a chance on going down 7-4 on such an easy find.
To Search – Any glance behind this sign from any direction is deemed a search. You peek or poke, you pay.
2. The Wrong Way. (10m East of GZ)
Just walk around to the oval side of that garden bed behind you. Look at the permapine post fence and then pick the post closest to the corner. The cache a 200ml Sistema container. It is underneath the undergrowth on the ground at the base of the back of that post.
This will be the first place you search because - it’s the only spot east of GZ. That’s a gimme.
This will be the last place you search because - we have got you walking in the other directions first. By the time you get back to this one, too late
To Search – Reach in or do anything that gets you a look behind the post.
3. The Nano (14m West of GZ)
Rabbitto have not hidden a nano cache up to this point. Go to the walkway opening in the fence just down the hill from GZ. Check the bottom of the fence post on the left on the way through. About 5cm from the ground behind the grass look for a 1cm diameter hole. The nano is in there.
This will be the first place you search because – it’s something Rabbitto have never done before.
This will be the last place you search because – why would Rabbitto place a nano cache when they haven’t yet?
To Search – Reach down or do anything that gets you a look at the base of the post.
4. The Dead Tree (86m NW of GZ)
Follow that path through the gateway that you passed at the Nano. Take a short walk until you reach the end of the peninsula and you will be adjacent to a large dead tree. There is an opening in the tree about shoulder height and some plant and leaf debris in that opening. The 200ml Sistema is just a little under that debris.
This will be the first place you search because – it’s so obvious that a typical cache hide would be the place.
This will be the last place you search because – it was so obvious that you will ignore it till it’s too late.
To Search – Poke or touch is just too much (even with a stick).
5. The Place it’s Not (75m SSW of GZ)
You will actually need to follow a path out of the park and re-enter on another path just past the creek. You will find a 200ml Sistema container in a stump right next to the high side of the path. The centre of the stump is hollow and a couple of rocks and bark hide the cache. Actually, I can tell you that the cache is not here. If you search here, you search in vain.
This will be the first place you search because – you think that we have tried to mislead you.
This will be the last place you search because – would Rabbitto deliberately tell a fib?
To Search – If you look inside or poke any part of your anatomy or any other object inside the stump, that’s a peek.
6. The Farthest Point (164m NW of GZ)
From GZ look across the lake at the metal grate. You will need to make your way to this grate. Just to the right of this grate as you face the lake and next to the fence is a pile of logs. Move the top two logs and the 1 litre Sistema cache will be revealed.
This will be the first place you search because – all the other ‘closer’ spots are just too ‘close’.
This will be the last place you search because – you will have checked every other place before you get here.
To Search – Tough call but once you get over 140m from GZ, that’s a look.
7. The Mystery Spot. (86m from GZ)
Somewhere in this park is a second information sign similar to the one at GZ, It is 86m away but in which direction? Just behind this sign to the right is a small tree with a small plant at its base. The 200ml Sistema is under the foliage of the plant.
This will be the first place you search because – The answer to Psychology 101 was #1 so this one will be #7.
This will be the last place you search because – it’s too similar to another Rabbitto series to be correct.
To Search – Looking, feeling or poking under that plant is a search.
