Geocache Description:

The coordinates above are not going to help you find the cache, but indicate the general area within a mile or two. Solve the puzzle at home to get the real coordinates.

The cache can be accessed easily enough if you're tall but for the shorter person the terrain rating is probably accurate. 5 / 3.5 is a useful rating for the collector, anyway!

Now I'm over the 1600 find mark, with over 400 caches found this year demonstrating that I'm not ready to give up yet, I thought I'd place a cache that commemorates many of my most memorable foreign finds. The "commemorative cache" idea is hardly an original one; for instance, Mr. Truffles did this for his 10,000th.

I'm nowhere near five figures of finds, but as I've found caches in many areas and countries, it's always nice to have a look back at some of them. Many have earned a "Favourite" since then, so stand out with their blue awards.

I hope you'll also have a look at the caches I've found and note a few of them to save for a rainy day. Of course, some are now no more; but a large number are still out there waiting for your visit. Some are far afield and I was often a little homesick at the time of logging. Have a look via my profile to get a wide range of suggestions in many parts of the world; there are some great photos as well. Picking a recent example: Du côté de chez Moss?

To solve this puzzle you'll have to find the secret trail leading to my subterranean bunker, in which I design all my most evil and devious caches and pick up all the messages sent out by treasure seekers the world over. But you'll need a user ID and password when you get there or else I won't let you in. Good luck finding them! If you're not sure which to use, try using the user ID that starts with a "1", and the password beginning with "a". Stick to lower case and you should get in.

The inquisitive or knowledgeable might have noticed that the cache name is also the name of a Bob Dylan song with a famous video. Note the characters that appear at the end. That's the part that is still relevant today.
