In the Legend of the Lost Cachers it is said that there are cachers lost in the depths of Swinley Forest.
Some believe they made the mistake of venturing within in darkness and became disoriented when their trusty GPS receivers lost their bearings under the tree cover, becoming completely lost when their batteries were depleted.
Others, less charitable, believe that they are still seeking the two and twenty caches placed by The Lord, remaining clueless without clues, too ashamed to emerge defeated.
Yet others believe that the cachers were actually in search of The Lord himself and were literally petrified by fear.
This cache gives you the chance to solve the puzzle: Proving or disproving the Legend of the Lost Cachers.
Of course, the cache is a night cache, since that's when the Lost Cachers are said to pace the woods.
Of course, the cache is not at the published coordinates.
However, they are the only coordinates we know of.
There's no need to cross any fences, find the way round! Nor is there any need to trample saplings - stick to the paths near to newly planted areas. Wear mosquito repellant! You WILL probably hate me at some point during your quest so take my number so you can PAFF (Phone a Former Friend)! The terrain is no exaggeration. Seriously. Don't go alone. Expect this cache to take ages and leave you exhausted. Perhaps Lost.
On your way, remember it is a puzzle and you can not solve it at home.
