Geocache Description:

Not at the above coordinates, which are for a small parking area where 2 or 3 cars could be parked. Check it out carefully on GE. It's at the lower level and you will have to work out how to get there.

Not another frustrating CM puzzle - this is a night multi-cache! You would have to be very lucky or skilled to complete it in daylight. Three sections of the walk are marked by reflective markers. Hides are kept easy, bearing in mind it will be dark.


The terrain rating for this cache is simply to take account of the length of the walk which, car to car, is just under 4 km (2.5 miles). There are no severe gradients and walking conditions are easy, following public footpaths (across a golf course for part of the way), bridleways and a short length of road. I suggest allowing an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half.

Note that the reflectors work best if you hold your torch at eye level.



Phase 1: From the given coordinates walk 150 metres west and find the start of the first reflector trail. Follow the trail until you find a cluster of reflectors.

Note that by "cluster" I mean more than two!

This marks the approximate position of Micro 1 (see hint).


Phase 2: With the coordinates given in Micro 1, find Micro 2 (see hint).

Phase 3: Go to the first set of coordinates given in Micro 2. How many arrowheads on the post (A)? Make sure you have the correct post - there are quite a few around!
A = ___

Then go to the second set of coordinates given. At this point, you will find the name of a person on a tree ( - - - - - 's Way). Convert the third and fifth letters of the name to numbers using the usual method. These numbers are B and C.
B = ___ C = ___

This point is also the start of reflector trail 2.

Phase 4: Follow the second reflector trail. When it ends, find the nearest post box. If it has VR on it, D = 2; if GR, D = 3; if ER, D= 4.
D = ___

Phase 5: Go to the start of reflector trail 3. The coordinates of this point are:

N 51 13. (C - B - B) (C + D - A) (C - A)
W 000 38. (B - D) (A + B + D - C) (D)

Phase 6: Follow reflector trail 3 to the cache. The approximate position of the cache is indicated by a cluster of reflectors. Cache is within 5 metres.

Happy hunting, and watch out for the wererabbits!

Congratulations to (one half of) sunsetjunkies for being the first solo finder ! And now hats off to Mr Cryptic for being the second solo finder and 99th finder overall.

There are extra hints for some of my puzzles in the cache.
