Geocache Description:

See intro for overview of this series

Cache is not the coordinates given above

Please bring your own pen.

From the following list of letters make 2 3-letter words, 2 4-letter words etc up to 2 7-letter words.

  1. --Y
  2. --Y
  3. -Y--
  4. -Y--
  5. -Y---
  6. --Y--
  7. --Y---
  8. -Y-Y-Y (my favourite and the inspiration for this puzzle!)
  9. --Y-Y--
  10. --Y----


Assume 10=0, and go alphabetically when needed in each pair.

The cache is at N51 1C.RHT W00 1((S/2)-D).(G-F)LN

Puzzle solution takes you to original hide - a tree that fell over. Deduct 0.038 from the Northing and add 0.058 to the Westing to get the new final coordinates.

To further add to the fun, each geocheck (1 to 4) has a clue in it. You will need the 4 clues plus the 4 clues from HortonHunter's Mists of Time series to solve our grand finale combined cache - ENDGAME. They form a logic puzzle, which is to be found on the ENDGAME page.
