Geocache Description:

Tre flaggermus starter samtidlig fra tre forskjellige steder:

Fladrik starter fra et sted på Dyrnesodden nær Strånda: N 58° 52,894, E 005° 46,326.

Flagvind starter fra vannet Grunningen: N 58° 51,193, E 005° 47,650

Flagrita fra cachen Let's Go Paddling i Lutsivannet: N 58° 52,246, E 005° 50,520.

De spiser mange saftige mygg på veien, men greier likevel å fly i rett linje og med nøyaktig samme fart til de møtes ved cachen i nattens mørke. For å gjøre beregningene litt lettere, anta at et latitudminutt tilsvarer 1850 meter og et longitudminutt 950 meter. GPSen kan ha problemer på stedet, bruk tipset.

Three bats take off at the same time from three different locations:

Fladrik from a place on Dyrnesodden close to Strånda: N 58° 52.894, E 005° 46.326

Flagvind from the lake Grunningen: N 58° 51.193, E 005° 47.650

Flagrita from the cache Let's Go Paddling in Lutsivannet: N 58° 52.246, E 005° 50.520.

They eat many juicy mosquitoes on the way, but still manage to fly in straight lines with exactly the same speed till they meet at the cache in the dark of the night. To simplify the calculations slightly, assume that one minute in latitude is 1850 metres, and one minute in longitude is 950 metres. The GPS may have troubles at the location, use the hint.
