Geocache Description:

O Local

O Parque Linear do Vale das Flores, inaugurado em 2001, é uma das várias áreas de lazer da cidade de Coimbra onde é possível passear ou praticar desporto. Contempla uma ciclovia, um circuito pedonal, um polidesportivo com piso em relva artificial, bem como diversos equipamentos de diversão infantil.

A Cache

Esta cache serve para vos fazer atravessar o Parque de uma ponta à outra, disfrutando daquilo que ele tem para oferecer. É uma cache com um enigma simples que não deve demorar muito a decifrar, e simples de encontrar.

É uma cache "small" com logbook, lápis e stashnote.

Muito cuidado com os muggles que abundam naquele local, especialmente aos fins-de-semana e em dias de sol.

Como encontrar a cache

Nas coordenadas iniciais irão encontrar um banco de jardim. Examinem-no e respondam às seguintes questões:

A - Quantos X servem de suporte ao banco?
B - Quantas tábuas de madeira formam o assento?

Depois, é só fazer as seguintes contas:

Y = (A x 238) + 17

Z = (B x 36) - 10

Com os resultados destas contas, as coordenadas finais serão:

40° 11.Y' N   8° 24.Z' W

Se as coordenadas vos levarem para fora do parque, refaçam as contas!

The Location

The Linear Park of Vale das Flores, opened in 2001, is one of several recreational areas in the city of Coimbra where you can walk or play sports. It includes a bicycle circuit, a pedestrian circuit, a playing field with artificial turf, as well as various equipments for children's play.

The Cache

This cache is made in a way that will make you cross the park from one end to the other, enjoying what it has to offer. It is a cache with a simple puzzle that doesn't take much to decipher and is easy to find.

It is a small cache with logbook, pencil and stashnote.

Be very careful with the muggles that abound in that place, especially on the weekends and on sunny days.

How to find the cache

In the initial coordinates you will find a park bench. Examine it and answer the following questions:

A - How many X support the bench?
B - How many wood planks form the seat?

Then you can just do the following calculations:

Y = (A x 238) + 17

Z = (B x 36) - 10

With the results in hand, the final coordinates will be:

40 ° 11.Y 'N 8 ° 24.Z' W

If the coordinates take you outside the park, redo your math!
