Geocache Description:

Welcome to Sydney's first Whereigo Cache.

In this Whereigo adventure you will need to capture Ned Kelly and recover the stolen treasure chest. This Whereigo will take you along an old bush track until you complete the adventure.

This is my first attempt at a Whereigo Cache so I hope you enjoy it. It's fairly simple and a good introduction to your first Wherigo experience. There is very heavy tree coverage in this area so you will need to be patient with your GPS. You will need to make your way as close as possible to each stage and let your GPS settle down.

Parking is available 30M SE of the start. Please do not block the gate.If the near by creek is flooded you should come back another time. Although it rarely floods safety is a priority.

After you complete the program you will get an unlock code. To log this as a find you must unlock it and log it on the Wherigo website. You will also need to sign the log in the physical Geocache to count it as a find. Make sure you put the cache back exactly as you found it so that it is out of sight.

To take part in this adventure you will need a Garmin Colorado, a Garmin Oregon or a GPS enabled PocketPC with a Wherigo Player. You can go to the Wherigo site to download the cartrige or click here: Download "The Search for Ned Kelly and the StolenTreasure"
I would appreciate any feedback you might have. If you run into any problems please contact me from my profile page.

As I live overseas 70% of the time a few others will be performing maintenance when I'm not available. Email me if you have any problems with the cache. I check emails daily. You can also contact a ruffasgutts4x4 directly.

A few notes about the Wherigo.
This is a very basic, straight forward Wherigo cache. I could have created a Wherigo with many variables and if you pick the wrong path or option you have to restart from the beginning hours later. I wanted to make this Wherigo as simple as possible and not discourage people in getting their first Wherigo find. The biggest challenge you WILL have is getting good GPS coverage.(That's why I made it a 3 difficulty) If your GPS isn't in the right zone some characters will not appear until you are. You may just need to be patient and wait for a good satellite lock for things to change. Good luck. If you have any questions send me a message.
