Ciao collega geocacher,

Dopo oltre un mese dalla mia nota, non ho ricevuto alcuna risposta nè visto alcuna modifica.
Se non lo hai ancora fatto, per favore raccogli ogni eventuale resto del cache al più presto possibile. Se hai intenzione di intervenire sul cache, una volta completata l'operazione per favore lasciatemi un messaggio con il numero waypoint GC relativo al cache. Sarò più che lieto di verificare nuovamente il cache per verificare la sua conformità con le linee guida.

Grazie per l'attenzione e per ogni ulteriore informazione ti prego di [u]non esitare a contattarmi o attraverso il [url=]message center[/url] oppure inserendo un log in questo cache[/u].

Ti ricordo di non fare 'Reply' a quest'email perchè non la riceverei.

Hi fellow geocacher,

After more than one month from my last note I didn't receive any answer and no action has been done.
If you haven’t done so already, please pick up any remaining cache bits as soon as possible. If you are going to fix the problems connected to this cache, once it is ready please drop me a note and let me know the GC waypoint number of the cache. I will be more than happy to take a look at your cache again to see if it is still is within the guidelines of the website for cache placement and posting.

Thanks for your understanding and for any further information please [u]do not hesitate to contact me or through the [url=]message center[/url] or by inserting a log in this cache[/u].
I recall you not to 'Reply' to this email since I would never receive it.

Geocache Description:


Il cache in questione si trova nella magnifica zona di fornazzo, paesino appena sopra Sant'Alfio. Nelle zone di Sant'Alfio e Milo, molte campagne sono possedute da cantanti o attori famosi che ne valorizzano i terreni producendo vini o altre specialità.

*** start ***
Le prime coordinate vi porteranno al centro del paese. Su un'abitazione noterete una placchetta con incisa la via.
Per ottenere le prossime coordinate sarà necessario eseguire una piccola e semplice operazione matematica:

Coordinate prossimo waypoint:

N 37°
E 015° 05.yyy

xxx = 536 + somma di tutte le lettere della placchetta, compresa la parola VIA

yyy = 966 + somma di tutte le lettere della placchetta, compresa la parola VIA

per esempio:

(xxx) se la via si chiama VIA MARIO (8 lettere) quindi 536+8 = 544
(yyy) se la via si chiama VIA MARIO (8 lettere) quindi 966+8 = 974

*** waypoint 2 ***

Il waypoint 2 è caratterizzato da sole coordinate. Aprite gli occhi e troverete quello che state cercando.

*** final cache waypoint ***

Il terreno non è dei migliori. Tuttavia il percorso dalla strada è breve ed in quattro salti dovreste riuscire senza problemi.
Il contenitore è un tupperware di medio-piccola dimensione


The cache is located in the area of Fornazzo, a village just above Sant'Alfio. In Sant'Alfio and Milo, many vineyards are owned by famous singers or actors (like Simply Red, Simple Minds and many others) who dedicated to the production of wines or other specialties.

*** start ***
The first coordinates will take you to the town center. On a house you will see a plaque with engraved the streets name.
To obtain the next coordinates will have to perform an easy operation:

Next waypoint coordinates:

N 37°
E 015° 05.yyy

xxx = 536 + sum of all letters of the plaque, including the word VIA.

yyy = 966 + sum of all letters of the plaque, including the word VIA.

for example:

(xxx) if the street's name is VIA MARIO (8 letters) then 536+8 = 544
(yyy) if the street's name is VIA MARIO (8 letters) then 966+8 = 974

*** waypoint 2 ***

The waypoint 2 is characterized by only coordinates. Open your eyes and you'll find what you are looking for.

*** final cache waypoint ***

The terrain is not the best. However, the path from the road is short and with a pair of jumps you should succeed without problems.
The container is a medium-small tupperware.


Der Cache liegt in der herrlichen Gegend von Fornazzo, ein Dorf knapp über Sant'Alfio. Im bereich von Sant'Alfio und Milo, befinden sich viele Felder im Besitz von berühmten Sängern oder Schauspielern (wie zb. Simply Red oder Simple Minds), die das Land zur Weinproduktion nutzen.

*** start ***
Die ersten Koordinaten bekommen Sie im Stadtzentrum. An einer Wohnung werden Sie eine Plakette finden, in der die Strasse eingraviert ist.
Um die nächsten Koordinaten zu bekommen, muessen sie ein einfaches raetzel loesen:

Naechste Doordinaten.

N 37°
E 015° 05.yyy

xxx = 536 + Summe aller buchstaben auf der Plakette, inklusive das Wort VIA
yyy = 966 + Summe aller buchstaben auf der Plakette, inklusive das Wort VIA


(xxx) wenn zb. die Strasse VIA MARIO heist (8 buchstaben) dann 536+8 = 544
(yyy) wenn zb. die Strasse VIA MARIO heist (8 buchstaben) dann 966+8 = 974

*** waypoint 2 ***

Der waypoint 2 zeigt euch Koordinaten. Öffnen deine Augen und du wirst finden, was du suchst.

*** final cache waypoint ***

Der Boden ist nicht sehr Einfach. Doch der Weg von der Straße ist kurz und mit ein paar Sprüngen sollte es gelingen.
Der Container ist ein mittel-grosser tupperware behaelter.
