garyhoney's sesquicentennial (AA-06) Mystery Cache

This cache has been archived.

BaSHful: Long promised, much delayed, it's finally time to say goodbye to all my Amazing Adventure caches for all the reasons previously mentioned.

However, I have not yet collected in the cache containers, which might not be for a few days or even a couple of weeks. I will post a further note here when I have done so.

In that interim period I will still accept 'Found it' logs, if there's anyone left who's desperately keen to make a find.

Geocache Description:

Find the key or solve the maze - your choice!

This cache was set to celebrate garyhoney's 150th consecutive day's (successful) caching. The above co-ordinates are not for the cache.

Choice 1 - The Cipher

The co-ordinates for the cache are contained in this cipher text:-
You should assume N51 and W000.

I'm using the Vigenere cipher. Your task is to work out what key I've employed! All the information to enable you to do this is contained within this cache page. Clue: Just remove most of CAL.

Choice 2 - The Maze

Note: The below link leads to a web page on my personal website containing a java applet (same as for all my previous caches). For this to work you need to have the java runtime environment (JRE) installed on your computer (which it usually is by default). If you have any concerns about running java applications on your computer then you should probably stick with trying to solve the cipher.

Still with me? OK, go to:-

See the Instructions link to learn how to navigate the maze. Another easy one, at least it will be once you've realised what the theme is. There's a troll or two (or three....) to avoid but just one that might be a little more problematical (though not to any veterans of my previous cache!).

Either choice

The container is right at the botton of the 'small' range. It contains a log book and has room for little else. Please bring your own writing implement.

Please DO NOT place Travel Bugs in this cache as they can be very difficult to extract. Micro geocoins are OK but nothing bigger.
