Geocache Description:

The posted location is not where the cache can be found and I wouldn't recommend trying to visit it either as you may get hit by someone tearing round a test track.

Person X is not originally from Berkshire, and part of their fame is related to where they were born and lived the early part of their life. However they are now a very well known Berkshire Resident having lived in the same place within the county for over 25 years.

There are those that say the number 13 is unlucky for some, but it is particularly true in the case of Person X.

Person X has done several different jobs, including digging graves, working in a factory, and driving lorries. Person X once got the sack for pinching the product he usually delivered in his lorry.

Despite (or perhaps because of) their very wild past, Person X doesn't get out much at all these days.

Person X is probably better known by their nickname, but is also very well known by their birth name.

To solve the cache:

A = The number of letters in the middle word of Person X's nickname?
B = The number of letters in Person X's first name (birth name)
C = The number of letters in the first name of Person X's Mother
D = The number of letters in Person X's surname (birth name)
E = [C] minus [the number of letters in Person X's middle name(birth name)]
F = [A] minus [D]
