Geocache Description:

A short and fun Wherigo, in a millenium forest on the outskirts of
Keynsham. Taking (if not wearing) wellies is highly recommended; it
gets quite muddy here. The terrain is flat; the difficulty is set
to 2 due to the mud (and the snakes, but more about that later!)

This Wherigo is based upon the legend of St Keyna, from whom Keynsham was named. The player 're-enacts' her tale of how she exorcised snakes from the forest, so that she may build her home there.
The legend goes that St Keyna wanted to settle in the forest, but due to the snake infestation in the area, she had to take serious action to clear them out.

As a player, it is your mission to try and rid the forest of thse deadly snakes. To archive this you will need to solve 3 relatively simple puzzles/problems. Everything you need to solve the problems are provided in the game, don't worry, no mathematics, logic, or word puzzles need to be solved to complete this, however making good use of what's available in the game is.

A word of warning or two - don't get too close to the snakes, and don't let them get to close to you; they bite and their venom is lethal! Try and keep a couple of meters away, as they have a long reach. The closer you are to the centre the more dangerous they become. Note: Some GPS's predict where your are going to be, so if you suddenly stop when you spot a snake 5m in front of you, the GPS will assume your still walking in the same direction and you will be bitten.

Also, somewhere in the forest is a giant snake. Get too close to him, and you are toast. It's not all bad in the forest though, and a friend somewhere in there may be able to help you out if you can't get to where you need to go.

Remember - if you die, you will need to reload the cartridge and start again. Saving now and then would be wise!

The cache is a clip lock box for the usual swaps. It's just a bit too small to be a regular sized cache.

Lastly, some of the things we have been trying to do with the Wherigo software is a bit new and experimental - we hope you like it. Do please email us your snakes!!!.gwl file if the cache does not work propertly.

WARNING: This Wherigo has problems running on the iPhone. The problem is being investigated and hopefully fixed soon.
