Geocache Description:

Da: Hvor god er du til at følge en beskrivelse?

How good are you at following directions?


Denne cache er inspireret af "How well do you follow directions in Bendigo" (Link).

Tak til The Morris & Rabbito for at inspirere mig til denne.

Denne cache tager en del tid at løse og du skal bruge en blok med plads til at lave en tabel med 26 søjler og 23 rækker.

Måske skal du også have en kande kaffe med (og et viskelæder).

Beskrivelsen er kun på engelsk og du skal kunne læse engelsk for at løse den.

Det skulle være simpelt, du skal bare følge nogle få simple instruktioner, men hvis du bøffer i det, så kommer du på afveje.


This cache is inspired of "How well do you follow directions in Bendigo" (Link).

Thanks to The Morris & Rabitto for the inspiration.

This cache takes some time to solve, so if you are in a hurry go somewhere else. You will need a notepad with space to make a table 26 columns by 23 rows. You may also need coffee and an eraser.

There are TWO sets of detailed directions that you will need in order to find the cache. The first will appear after you complete step 14 and the second will appear after step 23. Simple. Of course, if you make just one slip up at any step along the way, the error will gradually multiply as you work down the page and all you will be left with is a line of gibberish.

Shall we get started?

On the posted position you will find a sign and you may park your car here, while you solve the mystery.

On this sign there is a text box to the left. The first line says "Vis hensyn..". You will need the line just below.

As the sign is away for maintenance the text is here between the quotes: "Hunde skal altid føres i snor.".

Line 1: Take the second line of the text box and write it in first row. Write all the glyphs but skip the white space. You may change the first letter to lower case. That should occupy a total of 25 places in your table. Do not forget the character at the end of this line.

Line 2: Move all the l's to position 3 and forward. (From now on moving means that you shift the other characters. Write or replace means overwrite).

Line 3: Exchange 1 and 15.

Line 4: Find 2 identical vowels beside each other and replace them with "hs".

Line 5: Replace the Danish letter and first k with t's.

Line 6: Replace the strings "es" with "pa" and "FM" (upper case) respectively.

Line 7: Replace first occourence of u, r and n with o's. While you are at it do the same for the last r.

Line 8: Replace the Danish word for time (a 3-letter word) with the opposite word of "in" (3 letter word).

Line 9: Switch 25 and the last i.

Line 10: Write the letter for the opposite direction of east where you find the first "d".

Line 11: Copy letter from row 5 position 7 to position 25.

Line 12: Switch 22 and 24.

Line 13: Locate the 5th o and replace it with the letter coming after the letter to its left.

Line 14: Insert a dot (.) in pos 19. You now will have 26 chars.

Line 15: Dismiss column 25 and 26 from now on.

Line 16: In position 21 to 24 write (as a word) the compass direction counter clockwise to the compass direction found somewhere (as a word) in the line above.

Line 17: In pos 1 though 20: if the letter is a one-letter English compas direction write the opposite compas direction.

Line 18: For position 12 & 16 substitute the letters with the letters coming 2 places earlier in the alfabeth.

Line 19: Move the double l's to position 15-16.

Line 20: In position 16 write the word where your tounge normally is.

Line 21: Replace 5'th vovel and 8th consonant with an e.

Line 22: Replace lm with ss.

Line 23: Look at row 17. Calculate the number you get by multiplying (vowels + l's) * (f's + t's - p's). Write it with letters in the beginning of your table. (You can ignore the case of the letters in this line).

Now you can leave the car. Your trail starts at N56 08.459 E010 05.829 and follow the directions given to you.

The cache is an ammobox and a black wirestrap may guide you.

Please log how long time it took you to solve the puzzle.
