This cache is for Gandalf, the Grey Wizard. Gandalf is a fictional character in J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium, appearing in The Lord of the Rings.
Gandalf the Grey is a wizard, the first leader of the Fellowship, and the possessor of one of the three Elf rings which can be controlled by the Ring of Power. Whether he's really been killed by the Balrog, a monster of fire, or not, Gandalf will come back. But this time, our white knight switches to a more appropriate costume as "Gandalf the White".
Gandalf is a very, very, old wizard and firework-maker by profession. Gandalf's eyebrows are long, but he knows more than anyone else, so where the problem goes, he must go too. At least, that's the plan.
He has a long wiry beard, smokes like a chimney, and is not as tall as he looks. Gandalf has charisma. Even his horse has charisma.
"Gandalf" is a name from the Old Norse, meaning something like "spirit-being with a wooden staff". His name in Elvish means "grey pilgrim".
Take note of the number in the container lid. This will assist you with the final cache in the series “The One Ring.”
