Geocache Description:

Malmös första Wherigo. Wherigon är på engelska. En bra nybörjartur.

Malmö's first wherigo. A good start for beginners. The cartridge is in english only.


This wherigo is only avaliable in English.

Download it from here.

It is created as a guide to Malmö's Gamla Väster. It is a non linear adventure where you need to vistit 6 places in Gamla Väster. Each place has a documented historical description with pictures and text in the GPS. You can learn about the history of the site back to year 1500. You can pick the order of the sites as you wish. When all 6 places are found you walk to the end point and the coordiantes for the log will appear in your GPS. Remember, if you do not visit all 6 locations, the end coordinates will be hidden. At each location, make sure that the corresponding task is completed. The cordinates and accuracy is not the best in the narrow streets. Good luck and enjoy the walk. If you enjoy the wherigo conept there is another cache in Lomma (called Svarta Saras Gömma GC20N58) that is more advanced and that will give you some more challenges.

TIPS: The cartridge is played in an area with high buildings and narrow roads. This is not the optimal condition for a GPS :-) . When you are on a location, wait for a pop up message and the task in the GPS to turn into completed. On some devices (Garmin in particular) it can take a couple of seconds before the task is completed where you have to be standing still with a zero in distance for the location. Always check your tasks before leaving a location or you risk a walk back to complete the game. You need to visit 6 locations before you head to the goal (7th location) and when this is comleted you will be routed to the log.

WARNINg: As the gps signal may be weak, the directions may point you to roads with trafic. Please be very carefull and do not only stare at the GPS,there are cars and peolpe around you :-).
