mafiu: Archiving today to replace with GC2NMGP which is close by but a new hide. Decided to do a trad not a puzzle so as to give everyone local a chance to return and log a different one.

Geocache Description:

A puzzle cache in the Area 51: Series. The above location is the middle of Furzton Lake - the cache is NOT there!! You probably cant solve this one at home first unless you know the area.

The National cycle network Route 51 Runs from Colchester in Essex to Harwich and Felixstowe and then west to Oxford via Cambridge, Bedford and Milton Keynes. As 51 is a rather famous number elsewhere, what a great theme for caches on or nearby to this route. Please feel free to add any caches you like to this series.

In the real Area 51, you spend a lot of time stargazing in case you see any UFOs. Stargazing is best done at night in an area where there are flat plains. Or a lake. Furzton lake is ideal for this as you get good site lines to the three brightest stars in the sky. To solve this cache park up in one of the close by car parks and walk around the lake keeping your eyes pealed for UFOs and IFOs.

Happy Stargazing.
