Geocache Description:

One of a series. Level 04 is a harder than medium puzzle with a 1L food container cache hide. The photo below, of Peasmarsh pond, was taken from the given coordinates, the cache is not there.



This is a bmp and is not the same image as the one in the gallery.

One of a series (Watermark level xx) in which it gets steadily harder to solve the puzzle, though there is a common theme to them all. The size and difficulty of the cache hide varies throughout the series. There is also a passphrase in each puzzle which will be some help with the next puzzle in the series. It is strongly recommended that you solve the previous level before tackling this one.

The commentary is encoded in a similar fashion to ROT13, but instead of moving on (encoding) or back (decoding) 13 places, the move on (encode) or move back (decode) is defined by repeated copies of the passphrase - A=1 position, Z=26 positions.

EG if the passphrase is "C'a d", then use "CADCADCADCAD..." or 3,1,4,3,1,4,3,1,4... to shift the text. So "watermark" is encoded as w+3=z, a+1=b, t+4=x, e+3=h, r+1=s, m+4=q, a+3=d, r+1=s, k+4=o which is "zbxhsqdso". There is an online decoder available now.

Commentary:
szj yqgong.

The cache is initially stocked with calculator, hat, jumping monster, giraffe slide block puzzle, flying disk and there is a "First To Find" trophy. The terrain is based on walking from the icon to the cache.

Good hunting. You may also be interested in my other caches.
