### Geocache Description:

My brother Peter has put forward the idea of the Gnome holiday and it is a great idea of his. We have named the first Gnome “Peter”. We have taken a nice picture of “Peter the Gnome” with the rest of the Gnome family. This Gnome wants to go for a trip overseas. If you are an International traveler please take him and put him in another cache and tell us where he has gone. Lets all see just how many places he can go to. Take photos of him in various places. Of course he wants to be seen in famous places and with famous people if possible (e-mail us with the photos lynpatnat@yahoo.com) LET THE LITTLE GNOME SEE THE WORLD.

We have also placed or will place, as we need to the rest of the gnome family. They have their choice of destination on their card (Australia, Asia, Europe etc.). If you can take them on a holiday and allow them to fulfill their wish it would be appreciated. The card around their neck is their Passport. Take one for your own and leave the rest around his/her neck for the next recipients. Remember the idea is to document where he/she has gone. Photos and email to us and on the forum in the “Australia” section would be great.

There are also the usual things in the cache like toys and some foreign currency that we have collected in our own travels. (Indian, Indonesian, Danish and Old Australian 1 and 2 cent pieces) add what you want and take what you want.

Kings Park is the place to start this challenge. The end is near the DNA Tower in Kings Park.

STEP 1: Start by finding the memorial at ( S 31.57.501 E 115.50.628 ) Queen Victoria is the Dear woman’s name. You will see the years of her Reign...1*** - 1***… You can look up a book (she was the Queen of England as you all know) or find the statue and see them written on it. Write these down you will need them for the final formula to find the cache.

STEP 2: Light Horse memorial. ( S 31.57.409 E 115.50.626 ) Not too many hints here you will have to find it yourself (its not far away though). The question is. What number is their regiment? Write it down.

STEP 3: Find the DNA tower. ( S 31.57.857 E 115.50.172 ). Climb it and count the steps both on the way up and down. The question is. How many is there in total? (We counted differently on each side of the tower) I think you can find this information if you look in the tourist information kiosk also.

You are now within 200 meters of your destination. Walk 100 meters along the large green boulevard until you are near the big tree on the left. Sit down and let you GPS work out where you are with good Satellite numbers, now walk into the bush on the left. 100 meters to go to destination

The Asterisk * means that is a number you will have to fill in. I have made it as fool proof as possible so I hope you can work it all out.

Step 4: South Coordinates:

Add the years of Victoria’s Reign together and the number of steps of the DNA tower to this number also, then remove the first digit of the 4 digit number you have. So it becomes like this 1*** + 1*** = 3**2 + (steps total)=**** delete the first number of this figure = **1 Or if this is too hard or to double check the number you can use this formula.

The number of the light horse Regiment (previously mentioned in Step 2) and add 931 to this. So it becomes ** + 931=*4*

It’s not a hard quiz is it!!! You will now have a 3-digit number. Place that number into the missing number box ( S 31.57.*** )some of you may already see that you can almost work this out without going to these places. Step 5: East coordinates: How many years did Queen Victoria reign? Add the light horse regiment Number to this and then add 7 to this number. You will have a 2 digit number that replaces the ** in this group ( E 115.50.0** ) . So it becomes **(her age at death)+ **(the light horse regiment number)+ 7= ** (the number needed) Or if you want a quick and easy answer: The first 2 numbers of the start of her reign year reversed are what you want and will get you there So where did this get you? Maybe you had to cheat? (The final coordinates are in the decode part at the bottom of the page). Lyn Pat and Nathan e-mail us at lynpatnat@yahoo.com
