Fergzter: Time for this one to go. I did try and scout out a new location but none will avail itself that is suitably secluded. I might work on a spiritual successor as some point in the future. Thanks to all who found it.

Geocache Description:

Fergzters 38th Cache

The "Be Prepared" Series of caches are dedicated to the members of the Worldwide Scouting and Guiding Movements. This is the second cache in the series and will focus on Scouting’s sister movement, Guides.

The beginning coordinates is not where the cache is located, these coordinates will land you just outside the Linbogol Guide camp. You do not need to enter Guides property for this cache. The actual cache is about 250m away. The cache is accessible by foot or car. You can park within several meters of the cache.

To find the final coordinates for this cache you will need to find out some things about the Guiding movement. For guides and scouts this should be quite easy. If you are not from a scouting or guiding background then the internet will be your best friend.

Please replace the cache as found and ensure that its camouflage is maintained.

South Coordinate String:


AB = In what year was the Crystal Palace rally held in which a group of girls attended the first public appearance of the Boy Scouts and demanded that they be allowed to become scouts. Take the last two digits of your year and add 15 to your answer. e.g. 19AB + 15 = AB + 15 = __ 

CDE = In 1910, Agnes Baden-Powell has set up a new head quarters for the Girl Guides. This was to run the new movement separate from scouts. Lord Robert Baden-Powell contributed how many Pounds (£) to help the guide movement become established? Take the amount in pounds, multiply by 4 then add 2. Eg (Pounds * 4) + 2 = CDE (After some people having troubles with this one, here is a hint. The amount of pounds is the same as the age you would need to be to receive a telegram from the queen on your birthday)

East Coordinate String:


FG = In what year was the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) established at a conference in Hungary? Take the last two digits of this year and add 25. Eg. 19FG + 25 = FG + 25 = __
