Geocache Description:


Not Motorway Mayhem A1(M) J16 Greater Than Sudoku

We all know Motorway Mayhem caches are quick driveby caches that can be picked up whilst traveling up and down the countrys Motorways.
Well this is Not Motorway Mayhem. The cache is still a quick driveby (you could be back on the road in miniutes) but you have a puzzle to keep you occupied whilst you are travelling or before you set off.

The co-ordinates are not for the cache but for the the nearest Motorway exit.

However the cache is in a drive by location.

To find the cache co ordinates you need to work out the following puzzle:



This is a variation of the classic Sudoku.

The shapes created by the cells depict a less than < or greater than > sign, show if the value in the cell is smaller or larger than its neighbour.
The usual sudoku rules also apply :-
No repeating number in a row, column or 3x3 box.
But unfortunately you dont get any starting numbers.
Once you have solved the puzzle you need to extract the following informaton from the grid in order to find the cache.

a= C2+G8
b= E5+H6
c= (I7+B8)/3
d= (E2+H3)/4

v= D4+A9
x= I1+B2
y= (F3+F8)/3
z= I5-B5


The cache is located at N 52º 2a.bcd W 000º 1v.xyz

You are looking for a 450ml cliploc box capable of holding small swaps, geocoins and small tb's and containing a log book and pencil, a few goodies, and an unactivted TB for the FTF.

You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com.

Thanks to Mr Floppy for testing this for us.
