garyhoney's bicentennial (AA-07) 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This cache has been archived.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:

Solve the cipher or solve the maze - your choice!

This cache was set for garyhoney as he was approaching his 200th consecutive day's (successful) caching. He eventually stopped the 'streak' after a total of 400 consecutive days 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! It's as simple as ABC. 'A' you should be able to work out for yourself from information contained in the cache page. For 'B' you might want to consider one of 'Before', 'Behind' or 'Backward. 'C' is a language.

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. Life will get easier when you realise certain things!

Either choice

Once you've got the coordinates it's a simply cache and dash. The container is towards the bottom of the 'small' range. It contains a micro sized screw top pot that holds the log book and has room for little else. Please remember to bring your own writing implement.
